KastKing Biodegradable BioSpools, Honeywell Spectra, and American engineering and manufacturing add to the uniqueness of their KastPro fishing line product.
Garden City, Long Island, NY - January 18, 2018 -- KastKing has propelled their new KastKing KastPro Braided Fishing Lines into the fishing tackle market spotlight. KastKing, based in Garden City, Long Island, NY has used American aerospace engineering and manufacturing technology to produce a Spectra fiber based fishing line product, KastKing KastPro. KastKing's new braid line product comes on their revolutionary biodegradable spools, which replaces traditional plastic spools.
KastKing KastPro four-carrier braided fishing line is made in the USA with premium Spectra fibers by Honeywell. KastKing KastPro fishing line, with industry-best fade resistance, has minimal line stretch while maintaining a thin, round profile. This extremely thin braid is perfect for baitcasting or spinning techniques and increases casting distance in freshwater and saltwater. KastPro's most amazing feature is its extraordinary abrasion resistance.
KastKing's BioSpools are made with compressed wheat straw waste and will replace the brand's traditional hard plastic spools by the end of the year on all products. KastKing® BioSpools are compostable and will deteriorate in soil in about eight to twelve months to reduce landfill bulk. Wheat straw waste is a sustainable and annually renewable by-product.
More than 20 years ago, Honeywell scientists helped develop the first super-line for fishing. Spectra® is now the number one super-line material. KastKing braided fishing lines made with Spectra fibers are stronger, thinner, more sensitive, and more durable. Spectra fiber lasts twice as long in abrasion testing compared to other UHMWPEf (Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene fibers) materials. Spectra lines offer less internal friction, enabling increased life and decreased fray. KastKing's proprietary process greatly increases fade resistance with Spectra fibers compared to other fishing lines.
"It's a fantastic product wrapped around an exceptional concept," says Tom Gahan, KastKing's Chief Marketing Officer who conceived the idea for BioSpool. "We are proud to bring manufacturing jobs back to the USA. At the same time, we are equally proud to promote our remarkable environmentally engineered BioSpools. With the extreme abrasion resistance of KastKing KastPro four-strand braid anglers can fish with confidence around dock pilings, weed beds, jetties', oyster beds and other hard structures that cause break offs. Our outstanding elements of a specialized compound Spectra braid, made in the USA under certified ISO 9001 standards, and BioSpool have created a game changer for KastKing. They carry our company slogan of proving 'affordable innovation' in fishing tackle."
In addition to KastPro, KastKing's other notable braid lines include the brand's founding product, KastKing SuperPower Braid Fishing Line, and their other specialty braid fishing lines -- KastKing SuperKast9 nine-strand braid for outstanding casting distance, and MaxThin8, the market's thinnest profile eight-strand braid.
"All of us at KastKing are so delighted to be producing a superior braided line right here in the US using industry leading manufacturing technologies and our American workforce," says Al Noraker, Director of Product Development at KastKing. "KastPro Spectra braid has incredible strength while maintaining a thin diameter Anglers will love the superior knot strength and abrasion resistance. So, whether folks are looking for an affordable premium four-carrier braid for everyday fishing or when a big tournament is on the line, they can trust KastPro braid to come through when they need it most."
