I think everybody knows now that our family loves fishing and we go fishing quite a bit. We’re always trying new lures, weights, live bait and fishing line, and we’re always excited to try new fishing equipment!
Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate my KastKing review. Regardless, all opinions are my own and those of my family. This post contains affiliate links.
KastKing offers a variety of fishing equipment for both fishing beginners to the experts. Their products are developed through feedback from the fishing community directly to the manufacturing floor. Their slogan is “Designed by anglers for anglers”. It’s an inverse of the manufacturer to customer formula. Input from anglers and the KastKing tackle development team delivers the fishing tackle features that anglers want and need. KastKing was formed as a brand and division within Eposeidon.
For our review we received the KastKing Royale Baitcasting Fishing Reel, Copolymer Fishing Line and Fluorocarbon Fishing Line. We got a medium action rod for the Baitcasting Reel with the Copolymer Line. Here is what my husband thought:
This really is a great baitcasting reel. I, personally, prefer a spinner, but my husband loves baitcasting reels and was having trouble with his current reel. It took a few casts to adjust everything correctly, of course, but once adjusted, it functions very well, and he’s experienced far less (almost no) nesting as compared to his current reel. Plus, it is available in a right casting, which is what my husband prefers.
This is a really sharp looking reel. It reels smoothly and isn’t at all noisy. The reel is smooth in general as well as when reeling up catches of multiple sizes. It has really done well. My husband has neuropathy, and he’s noted this reel is comfortable in his hands. It notes being smooth and consistent, and I think that is a great way to describe this reel!
Although I usually don’t prefer Fluorocarbon line (because I’ve had too many problems with it), I wanted to give it another try. I have been impressed with this Fluorocarbon line (as is my husband). We’ve been using the 5lb line on the medium action rod. This line has been sturdy but flexible. It has the perfect amount of stretch. We’ve had no issues with breaks or tangles, and have found this is an overall great Fluorocarbon line!
The Copolymer Line is an interesting line, and I was intrigued to try it. It is definitely better than mono. We have been using it on a medium action rod with a spinner. I have found it’s definitely a strong line, though it is light as well. I haven’t had any problems with breaks. It sinks slowly, which is nice, and it’s also great for top water fishing. It knots well, and has quite a bit of stretch – almost a little too much for what I personally prefer, but it is overall a good line.
Overall, we have been happy with and impressed by the KastKing reel and line! They are of high quality and reliable – exactly what we look for in our fishing equipment! The KastKing products can be purchased on Amazon.

My son recently told me he wants to learn fishing. It is something we never really did so I need all the help I can get. I guess I am gonna have to find some poles.

I admire people who have the patience to fish. I don’t fish because I never do anything I don’t have a good chance of success. And the fish has too much say for my tastes!
Our neighbors when I lived in Illinois used to go out on Lake Michigan and bring us home fresh fish. It was so good on the grill.

I can understand that! Fresh fish on the grill is definitely good!

Great video! And a very helpful review. We’re looking for new fishing equipment and it’s good to know what I should be looking for. My son and husband and father-in-law love to fish together and this would be great for them.

My family loves to fish. We go out nearly every weekend for a couple hours. It is a great way to be outside, enjoy each others company, and maybe even come home with dinner. Always looking for new products to try out. This one looks pretty sweet.

Haven’t been fishing in years. Grew up fishing, but got out of the habit.

Very informative review. Fishing is a great way to create new memories. I used to fish with my grandpa but haven’t been fishing since his death. But now, I am over it and planning to get some new fishing gears to go out on the lake with my kids.
Luke Thomas says
Nice review. I’m not too familiar with KastKing yet, but they certifiably look like a good alternative to the more popular name brands. I spend a fortune on line over the summer, so if their fluorocarbon line is decent it will be a nice saver for me. Thanks!

Definitely! We have spent a lot as well, so it’s nice to find an affordable option that is of good quality.

Appreciate the article, we’re always on the look out to try new line and although we get many people pushing it onto us, we prefer to test something new that’s already been recommended. Thanks again!

I’ve never really cared for baitcasters, but instead have opted for spinning reels. Also, I only use fluorocarbon line for my leader material and instead prefer to use braid. Anyways, great article! I always love to read anything fishing related.
Interesting! Thanks for sharing!
Kastking is building some of the best dollar for dollar baitcasters on the market. Can’t believe they pack so many features into reels that anyone can afford.
Jim watson says
Helpful review. Do you think kastking is the best reel producer?
I don’t feel like I’ve tried enough different reels to know for sure.

Kastking fishing reel is a very excellent choice. It is the suitable fishing reel for all types of fishing. You can not have achieved in any sport if you do no longer have the right equipment. So select the right product for your fishing trip. I think kastking is the best choice.

KastKing is definitely a good value for the money. They’re priced well for the average weekend fisherman and the build quality is adequate enough.
David Fletcher says
Kastking is my favorite fishing gear. I have been using Kastking spinning reel for last 2 years. It’s have been giving me long time support.

Great Post! KastKing is a great company and their products have only been getting better over the year, in my opinion. I run a review based website and KastKing’s products make regular appearances on the site because of their quality. Like you talked about, their fishing line is no exception to this. Thanks for the great post, I’ll be reading through your other ones!

I’ve found the same thing with Kastking products – they’re a great value, and preform above and beyond their modest price point.
Keep up the great work!
