KastKing® Breaks Out Unique Fishing Reel

A new concept to thwart fishing line tangles wraps itself around the KastKing® Mako Spinning Reel.

Eposeidon KastKing

Garden City, Long Island, NY (January 26, 2016) — KastKing®, a division of Eposeidon, Inc. (http://www.eposeidon.com), has come out with a new innovative spinning reel for 2016 named the KastKing® Mako 3500.

KastKing Mako 3500

Although the key features of the KastKing® Mako 3500 include an impressive line retrieve rate for its size, an exceptional drag rated at 22 lbs./ 10 kg from its oversized drag washers, and 8 + 1 shielded stainless steel bearings, anglers will appreciate the revolutionary design rotor brushes that prevent their fishing line from dropping down on to the spool skirt during retrieve. The exclusive rotor brushes on the Mako spinning reels reduce loops and snarls resulting in a more pleasant fishing experience. This unique antifouling spinning reel rotor design is not available from other brands.

KastKing Mako 3500 Spinning Reel

The KastKing® Mako 3500 reel gets its amazing smoothness from 8 stainless steel shielded ball bearings plus one instant stop anti-reverse. A beefy reel foot made from aero-grade aluminum alloy and a deep aluminum spool machined from the same material that retrieves 36 inches of line per turn of its handle give the Mako spinning reel a rock-solid feel.

KastKing® Mako 3500 reels are finished in black and silver with a distinctive spool lip gold accent, have a right hand or left hand reversible CNC machined aluminum handle, a 5.1: 1 gear ratio, and a EVA flat paddle non-slip knob. A Mako 3500 weighs 11.82oz/ 335g and has a line capacity of (mm/m) 0.25mm/190m, 0.30/130, 0.35/100 and a monofilament line capacity of (lbs/ yds) 8 lb / 240 yards, 10 lb /195 yards , 12 lb/ 165 yards.

“Like many KastKing® products, the KastKing® Mako 3500 stands out due to its inventive design features,” says Tom Gahan, marketing director at Eposeidon, Inc.. “Mako’s rotor brushes keep any line that has spilled over the spool up where it belongs and virtually eliminates line overrun loop fowling. There’s nothing quite like the KastKing® Mako out on the market.”

KastKing® Mako 3500 will have a MSRP of $69.98 and be discounted to sell in the mid-$40 range at http://www.eposeidon.com, http://www.amazon.com/kastking, and other select online retailers.

KastKing Sharky II Waterproofed Fishing Reel Announced

Patented waterproofing system and upgraded components added to best-seller to create the KastKing® Sharky II Spinning Reel.

Eposeidon KastKing

Garden City, Long Island, NY (January 11, 2016) — Today, KastKing®, a division of Eposeidon, Inc., introduces a unique KastKing® Sharky II spinning fishing reel model for 2016. KastKing® Sharky II, the successor of the KastKing® Sharky, underwent 3 years of development and holds 20 design patents. It is built to withstand harsh conditions and submersion for up to three minutes.

KastKing Sharky II

KastKing® Sharky II features 10 superior quality shielded stainless steel ball bearings and an instant stop anti-reverse bearing. As an upgrade to KastKing®’s best-selling Sharky spinning reel model, the KastKing® Sharky II received a new-design spool with waterproof carbon fiber drags that is stronger, 10% lighter, and casts 10% farther than its predecessor. KastKing Sharky II has a best-in-class carbon fiber drag system rated up to an exceptional 41.5 lbs. / 19 kg. of maximum drag, and the strength of its brass gears were increased by 30%. KastKing® Sharky II’s handle cogs were re-engineered for a more exact fit. Reinforcement was added to the reel body for less torsional flex, yet it remains light weight for its size and features. The Sharky II 4000, which generates 28.5 lbs/ 13 kg of drag, weighs in at 11.1 ounces/ 317 grams while the Sharky II 6000 has 41.5 lbs. / 19 kg. of drag.

“KastKing took the best-selling Sharky spinning reel and made it more spectacular! The new KastKing® Sharky II reel is lighter, stronger, and is now dunk-proof. Sharky II has a patented design waterproofing seal system that repels a three-minute plunge and keeps on fishing,” says Eposeidon marketing director, Tom Gahan. “Kayak anglers and saltwater surf fishing fans, whose fishing tackle tends to get soaked, will love the Sharky II spinning reel’s features.”

“For kayak fishing the probability of dunking your gear is higher than for most other types of fishing,” says Team Eposeidon Angler Consultant Shane Coovert in Kingswood, TX who won the Corpus Christi KATS (Kayak Angler Tournament Series) last September. “With the KastKing® Sharkey II being dunk proof for up to three minutes, it gives you plenty of time to retrieve your fishing tackle setup should you lose it.”

“The factory successfully tested the Sharky II for immersion up to 5 minutes, but we wish to remain conservative in our claims,” added Gahan.

KastKing® Sharky II is saltwater approved and has a one-year warranty. It has an interchangeable right-handed or left-handed interchangeable handle and is available in 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, and 6000 series sizes. The 6000 is fitted with a T-grip handle. KastKing® Sharky II Spinning Reel MSRPs are: 2000 – $65.98, 3000 – $69.98, 4000 – $71.98, 5000 – $78.98, and 6000 – $94.98. All models have been deeply discounted for the product launch and will continue to sell at discounted prices through http://www.amazon.com/kastking and other select online retailers.

They will be select models within KastKing® ‘s bestselling fishing reels, the KastKing® Blade and the KastKing® Triton, and also an innovative new reel scheduled to be released later this year.

Boca Bearing KastKing

KastKing® and Boca Bearings, based in Boynton Beach, Florida will also offer bearing kits for those who want to upgrade their KastKing® baitcasting or spinning reels to state-of-the-art high performance ceramic hybrid bearings, or premium steel bearings produced by Boca.

“There’s only a couple of manufacturers building boutique reels with ceramic bearings as OE. Those reels sell for $400 or more. Since KastKing® already offers affordable reels with a proven track record, even with the addition of Boca ceramic hybrid bearings; they will be well within the reach of anglers who are looking for ultimate performance on a budget” says Tom Gahan marketing director at Eposeidon. “The performance of Boca’s ceramic hybrid bearings is incredible. It’s all about taking a good KastKing® reel and making it outstanding with Boca Bearings. We are excited about teaming up with Boca; they are an excellent company.”

KastKing ICAST 2015

“20 years ago we were excited to be the first company to bring ceramic bearing technology to the fishing reel market, what we didn’t expect was the movement it would become,” says Boca Bearing’s president, Allen Baum. “We are thrilled to be a part of this great industry that continues to grow and evolve. We are especially thrilled these days to see the youth angler programs growing by leaps and bounds. The future looks bright and we are happy to be a small part of something amazing.

Technology Filled Live Liner Fishing Reel Introduced

Maelstrom bait runner reels include features that are not available elsewhere in a higher price range.

Eposeidon Logo

Garden City, Long Island, NY (April 11, 2015) — Eposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc. (http://www.eposeidon.com) has announced the release of its newest fishing tackle product, the Ecooda Maelstrom bait runner spinning reel.

The Ecooda Maelstrom spinning reel has classic front and rear drag functions that are often referred to as bait runner or bait feeder style spinning reels.

Ecooda Maelstrom Bait Runner Spinning Reel

Ecooda Maelstrom Bait Runner Spinning Reel 2

Named after powerful swirling ocean vortexes that create havoc in the water, the Maelstrom has been designed with key features that are important to anglers. It was created by anglers for anglers through direct input from Team Eposeidon, Eposeidon’s Angler Consultant Staff for the North American market, which resulted in the reel’s technology loaded design.

“We took a look at what was out in the market for bait runner reels and realized we could build a reel with more features than our competition’s upper end models while keeping the price point on par with their low-end bait feeder reels. For example, we use eight high-quality stainless steel shielded ball bearings, and a triple disc carbon fiber drag washers, which exceeds other top of the line models,” says Tom Gahan, Marketing Director at Eposeidon, Inc.

The Maelstrom spinning reel lets a fish bite and run with trolled or drifted live bait without feeling the line or the reel’s drag. When the angler is ready to set the hook, a turn of the handle or a flip of the main drag lever instantly engages the pre-selected maximum front drag tension. The secondary drag can be set to zero to let line out or just enough tension added to control the action of live bait.

The Ecooda Maelstrom is equipped with eight high-grade shielded stainless steel ball bearings plus a stainless steel anti-reverse roller bearing, triple carbon fiber drag washers, stainless steel main shaft , a patented “Wonder Dome” forged aluminum spool that has near zero start up inertia resistance for smooth drag performance, special formula high modulus non-rusting graphite body, and a machined aluminum direct drive interchangeable left or right handed handle with oversized EVA nonslip grips. As a bonus, Maelstrom reels come with an additional graphite spool at no charge. Maelstrom is saltwater approved.

Darcy Hill, who targets big redfish with live bait near Charleston, SC and is a Team Eposeidon angler consultant says, “I’ve been a part of the Ecooda Maelstrom project since the idea of doing our own bait runner came to fruition last summer at ICAST (International Convention of Associated Sportfishing Trades). This reel will be an epic game changer for Eposeidon. I’m honored to have played a part in its creation!”

The Maelstrom bait runner is available in 2000, 3000, 4000, and 5000 class sizes. With a MSRP spanning from $64.98 – $70.98 the Maelstrom will initially be sold in the mid $50 range.

Tate Cui, Eposeidon‘s CEO stated, “Once again we have an opportunity to show the fishing community that they can have high quality, innovative fishing tackle at an affordable price. This has been the corporate mandate since the company was founded.”

Eposeidon Introduces New Ecooda Ocean Master Fishing Reel

Eposeidon Logo

Heavy duty high-tech conventional reel with unique features for offshore fishing is now available only through Eposeidon for the US and Canadian markets.

Ecooda Ocean Master Conventional Reel

Hempstead, Long Island, NY (September 25, 2014) — Eposeidon, Inc., the North American distributor of Ecooda fishing reels, has introduced the Ecooda Ocean Master Conventional Reel.

A unique feature of the Ecooda Ocean Master (EOM) is its unique patented double level-wind support shafts that gives outstanding stability and unwavering pressure on retrieve. Ecooda Ocean Masters also have a patented double support bearing system on its stainless steel main shaft that adds superior strength and longevity to the reels.

Ecooda Ocean Master Conventional Reel 2

Available in left and right handed models, all Ecooda Ocean Master Fishing Reels feature carbon fiber drags for smooth operation and performance needed to fight big game fish. EOM 30’s have 33 lbs. (15 kg.) of drag and EOM 50’s produce 44 lbs. (20 kg.) of drag. It is an exceptional amount of drag power for reels in that class size. Ocean Masters have 7 shielded stainless steel ball bearings (patented double bearing support on the main shaft), precision machined brass gears and stainless steel components for maximum strength and durability, 6.2:1 gear ratios, ceramic line-guide inserts, and a reel-foot locking plate to keep the reel securely clamped to the rod shaft while battling big fish. Its frame is constructed from high-modulus graphite for a higher stiffness to weight ratio.

“Performance combined with endurance is the key,” says Eposeidon’s CEO Tate Cui. “The available drag pressure is more than double the available drag on other reels in that class. In testing this spring it boated a 90 pound fish off the coast of Japan without effort. Everything in the reel is stainless steel, brass, or graphite; all of which withstand the effects of seawater. It’s built for survival.”

“The Ecooda Ocean Master reels put us squarely in the conventional reel arena for big game fish. You can’t beat that many features and the benefits for the price,” says Tom Gahan, Marketing Director at Eposeidon. “We’ve had exceptional success with other Ecooda models based on their price, quality, and performance. We predict the same level of success with the Ocean Master and for the new smaller round baitcaster model the Ecooda Tiro Caster.”

Ecooda Ocean Master Fishing Reel‘s retail pricing begins in the $120 range. Eposeidon offers free shipping on orders over $20.
