I have been buying KastKing products for a while now. They used to ask me to buy their stuff and do a review and get a refund. I have rod racks, reels, rods, face masks, hats, you name it.
I agree with you about the reel! However, I have to tell you I buy mine for much cheaper on Aliexpress. They have a great fishing selection and some cool lures on there as well.

I use 30# braid and 20 lb mono leader and haven't had any issues. I adjust the brakes once and then only need adjust the tension on lure change out.
The KastKing stealth and the Spartacus are both great reels! I also have two spinning reels and rods. The rods come with two upper sections with different flexing. I have dropped my reels on the rods and I have dunked both of my bait casters in the salt water and immediately rinsed them off with bottled water and I have not had ANY issues with mine yet. I have had mine for well over 10 months now. Not dropped the spinning yet. I have floats on all my rods so I guess maybe I get to complacent and keep letting them go in the water. LOL
Check out the spinning reels also. They are just as good and you can find a good deal on them as well.

Been using this one for a little while now, and am very impressed with it. I destroyed a few of my freshwater reels in the salt so decided to get a few of these to replace them. It has worked great. I just can't bring myself to spend the money on big name saltwater baitcasters.

These look great, I may have to get a couple of these. Can't beat that price!

I agree! These do look good with the oil port like that! I haven't had to service my reels as of yet since I bought them but one of the reels I dropped in the water has a tiny vibration when reeling sometimes. It's because I still need to open it and clean it and re-oil it. Taking it apart to do is a pain.
Gonna invest in a couple of this brand as well it look s like!!
Aliexpress has them cheaper as well...LOL

I cannot stress Ailexpress enough for fishing gear and lures. Do a search for your favorite lure (whopper plopper is one that is half price on the site) or favorite tackle and I bet you find something you buy!

Yeah I just went on their site and looked around. Not sure how they sell so cheap but man everything looks about half price or less. I really like reading the reviews for a good laugh. Most are foreign reviews and the language translation to english reflects it!!

I buy many items from them all the time. It does take 2 weeks to over a month to get your items but everything I have bought from the site has been quality items. Of course some are just knock offs and are not exactly like others but for half the price I'm your huckleberry!

I sent you a PM

I will be in Port A on April 29th through the May […]

Where are you located?

I am thinking about fishing the lights this coming[…]
