Finished entirely in jet black, the Mela Spinning Reel’s standard features includes: 10 + 1 stainless steel bearings, instant stop anti-reverse, stainless steel main shaft, brass gear, interchangeable right or left hand CNC aerospace-grade machined aluminum handle and aluminum spool with honeycomb design spool skirt, plus a spare graphite spool.

Line capacity on the Mela ranges from 82 yards of 10 lb test on the Mela 2000 to 240 yards of 10 lb test on the 5000. The Mela’s light weight graphite body and all of its components are saltwater approved and carry a one-year warranty.

“The KastKing® Mela has more standard features than other reels costing many times more,” says Tom Gahan, marketing director at Eposeidon, Inc.. “People often mistakenly equate low price with poor quality. Time after time KastKing has proven that is not the case. People are paying more for big name brands because they equate more expense with high quality. We have successfully offered quality fishing tackle at an affordable price. Based on Mela’s price point, we expect a large sales volume on this reel. Feedback about the Mela’s performance during testing was exceptional.”

MSRP for the KastKing Mela is $64.98 for the 2000, 3000 is $66.98, $68.98 for the 4000 and $70.98 for Mela 5000. It will retail through select on-line retailers such as http://www.amazon.com/kastking.

Jay Shimburski, of Fish Green Kayak Tours in South Carolina who is an Angler Consultant for KastKing says, “Mela is a nice reel that can be used for a lot of different applications. They will sell on-line for under $40. It’s a bargain and a perfect fit for any fishing budget. I’ve seen a lot of poor quality reels out there in that price range; that’s not the case with the KastKing Mela.”

KastKing Introduces Specialty Fishing Rods

Eposeidon Logo

KastKing, a division of Eposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc. has created a line of specific use fishing rods that bring innovation and technology to fishing tackle.

Bass Fishing

Hempstead, Long Island, NY (August 25, 2014) — Eposeidon‘s KastKing™ division that sells high-quality economically priced fishing reels and fishing line has added fishing rods to their product lineup. KastKing™ will offer 23 models made for freshwater techniques and kayak fishing. Their bass fishing rod line carries the name Perigee, named after the positioning of the moon when fish are most active, and Phantom for KastKing’s™ patent-pending kayak rod series. KastKing™ has designed and manufactured spinning and baitcasting rods in the Perigee line for specific bass fishing techniques such as: crankbait, flipping/C-rig, topwater, frogging and punching, jerkbait, and drop-shot/shakey head.

Kayak Fishing

There are also KastKing™ Perigee multipurpose spinning and baitcasting rods for a variety of species and techniques. In addition, KastKing™ has created a rod specifically for kayak fishing. It was designed after input and months of testing by kayak anglers in freshwater and saltwater.

“Possibly the greatest feature of these rods is the price,” says Eposeidon’s Marketing Director, Tom Gahan, “With top quality components and features that offer action of rods costing hundreds more, we have a good outlook for market share with our price-point set in the $70 range. It took a lot of work to pack so much quality into these rods and offer the best value anywhere. For the angler’s sake, we’re glad we could.”

Eposeidon will be offering a special pre-release discount on Perigee and Phantom rods at the beginning of September. Pre-release ordering details will be available at http://www.eposeidon.com at that time. Customers who place a pre-release order will have their rods shipped out after arriving in Eposeidon’s warehouses in mid-September. Once the KastKing™ rods are in inventory, the regular retail price of $79.95 will apply.

Drew Daniel of Drew Daniel Adventures, who comes from a fishing family in the sporting goods business and is a renowned outfitter of guided fishing trips in the US, Mexico, and Brazil says about KastKing™ Bass rods, “The very best rod on the market, We have a closet full of other brand rods, KastKings are my go to rod for fishing all over the world.”

“An excellent multi functioning rod for jigging for bottom dwellers or casting for predators. In a kayak, rod selection is so important since you can only bring a few, but these rods give you the ability to have a multi-species day with just one pole,” commented Elias Vaisberg, who competes in fishing competition internationally and has won the Jamaica Bay Kayak Fishing Classic in 2013 and 2014 that has hundreds of competitors.

Tate Cui, CEO at Eposeidon says, “Eposeidon listened to input from the angling community for their wants and needs in a quality fishing rod. We gathered the best designers, engineers, and materials to create a fantastic product. The feedback from our testers has exceeded our expectations. We are willing to work within tighter margins to make KastKing rods affordable and stay within our company motto, ‘the thing we do best is save you money on fishing tackle’.”

Eposeidon Named Exclusive Ecooda® Distributor for North America

Eposeidon Logo

Ecooda® inks contract with Eposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc. as the sole distributor for Ecooda fishing products in the United States and Canada.

Ecooda Hornet Spinning Reel for Surf Fishing

Hempstead, NY, USA (May 30, 2014) — Executives at Eposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc. (Eposeidon, Inc., http://www.eposeidon.com) based on Long Island, New York, and Ecooda®, which manufactures a variety of spinning and baitcasting reels and other fishing products, have entered into an agreement recognizing Eposeidon as the sole agency representing the Ecooda® brand in the North American region of the US and Canada.

Ecooda® reels are already on Eposeidon’s warehouse shelves. Spinning reel models include the high performance surf model Hornet, the high-tech Black Hawk built with carbon fiber components, ERS Max Drag Power which comes with features usually only found in reels selling for hundreds of dollars more, and the CZS series that offers a quality reel at the economy level. Presently Eposeidon also markets Ecooda® baitcasting reels, the Sniper High Speed, and the Shadow. Other models are under consideration to be added.

Ecooda Sniper High Speed Baitcaster

“We’ve put Ecooda® reels in the consumer’s hands since the second half of last year and the products have been met with outstanding positive reviews,” says Eposeidon’s CEO Tate Cui. “Given the top quality of the reel, and the price we can market it at, it was an easy decision to enter into the arrangement.”

Eposeidon marketing manager Tom Gahan added, “The Ecooda® reels are selling themselves. Each Ecooda® model has outstanding features at its respective price point. At best, the percentage of returns for warranty replacement has been microscopic; far below other comparably priced brands.”

“It is an exciting time for Ecooda®. Our growth rate has exceeded our expectations,” says Cui. “Ecooda® is yet another product that continues to bolster our sales. We look forward to a great relationship with Ecooda® and will be adding other products and lines in the third quarter of 2014.”

Ecooda® reels have enjoyed a solid reputation and wide acceptance among Australian and European anglers for the last several years.

Gahan commented on the marketability of the Ecooda® brand, “We respect that anglers are brand loyal. But we see a trend toward recreational fishing tackle consumers purchasing reels that do the job equally as well at less than half the price. Ecooda® plays a role in that shift. Brand loyalty is falling to spending sensibility.”

Eposeidon also markets a line of spinning and baitcasting reels under their own KastKing™ brand.
