I have one of their rod racks; well built, looks nice, easy to assemble, light weight and holds a descent amount of rods.

I've seen this brand for awhile now but never committed to looking into it. Looking forward to learning more about it. Congrats on the new sponsorship.

It'll be nice to have a low priced option that also has good support in the US. You don't get that with many "off-brand" imports you see on auction sites.

Looking at their Amazon store, I'm seeing a 6oz. baitcasting reel with 16.5 lbs. of drag, 11+1 bearings, and dual braking (magnetic and centrifugal) for only $60 shipped. Talk about value packed!

yeah thats kinda what concerns me, how well is it put together ? what are the gears made out of ? there has to be a downside.

if not looks like ive going to be pretty brand loyal. going to wait to hear from others.

They're a carbon frame (graphite), and gears are brass.  We'll be testing them shortly.

I have had my eye on the Kastking Sharky II for awhile. Once I read Roadwarrior's link and found out about the company was started by some Syracuse University entrepreneurs, I bit the bullet and ordered one. Happy to support the sponsers as well as my fellow NY'ers.

For the price it will be hard to beat a 10 bearing waterproof reel with brass gears.

I put their Stealth reel to the test and I'm happy with it.   I also bought the Assassin reel and Fortis braid but these are still in the mail.

Haven't used 'em that long.  But this year was time to upgrade my gear.  Decided to try the Assassin and a Spartacus.  Like 'em enough that now have 4 Assassins, 1 Spartacus and 1 Royal Legend.  Don't know yet how well they will hold up over the long haul, but so far like them very much.  Also got the Fortis braided line in moss green/20lb.  Really like the no memory of the braided stuff and it sure is nice when work stumps and brush piles...........

Keeping my fingers crossed................come spring will find out just how good this stuff is...........
