A balanced and smooth reel at an affordable price. I put one on every rod I have! Get fishing people!
the size 500 caught this snake head , unsure of weight but it was big, caught on a crappie jig ad 4lb kast king mono paired with the kestrel ultra light rod, highly recommend their products, will be the only brand i use from now on.
I am a novice fisherman, I have not bought a new rod and reel in probably 8 years. I finally decided to buy some new gear since my boys are into fishing with me now. I went to bass pro with my boys and bought them new setups bass pro package rod and reel, after using it three times my son casted out and reeling back in the rotor broke, a huge chunk just fell out and it locked up. I couldn't believe it, in gearhead terms it "windowed the block" lol. So I did some more shopping, found Kastking on amazon read some great reviews decided to give them a try. This is my 5th order from Kastking I love their products so much I decided to leave a review. I never take time to write a review but I am really impressed with all their products, I have tackle boxes, braided line, rods, spinning reels, and bait casting reels. I am really impressed with my new Zephyr UL setup I absolutely love it is so light and so smooth and looks absolutely AMAZING, and green is my favorite color. Thanks Kastking for the awesome products at a much better price than all the others out there.
Bought the reel for stream fishing for trout. It is paired with an ultralight fishing rod. The reel is a 500 size. It has held up to trout over 20 inches and bass the same size. I love how light it is and the drag is very smooth. I just bought a 2000 size reel for another rod. Very happy!
Ok so here's all the stuff that's great about this reel: 1. It is freakin' beautiful. 2. it will free spin for more than 15 seconds. 3. It casts far. 4. It weighs only 5.6 ounces. 5. It will hold an entire spool of 6lb braid. 6. IT IS ONLY $42!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just buy it and see for yourself.
