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!

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.
