For Immediate Release - August 14, 2018 - Garden City, Long Island, NY. KastKing (www.kastking.com) has entered a series of baitcasting fishing reels, the KastKing Royale Legend Elite, into the fishing tackle market.  

KastKing Royale Legend Elite baitcasters are available in four colors matched to four specific gear ratios: white is 5.3:1, blue 6.6:1, black 7.3:1 and red is 8.1:1. Royale Legend Elite baitcaster reels were developed as the first in a series of tournament ready performance reels for bass fishing. The color coded ratios allows the quick selection of a gear ratio even in dim light conditions. It is KastKing's lowest profile baitcaster to date, developed for the palming technique often used by anglers. KastKing named this new design, "palm perfect."  


Unique features of the palm-sized Royale Legend Elite are its smooth 'Swing Wing" side plate design with an "Ergo Twist" opening mechanism, which allows anglers to easily open the side plate with one hand. It does not use switches, levers, push buttons, or screws to undo the side plate. KastKing's Swing Wing keeps the side plate attached to the reel's body so it cannot fall into the water or get blown away in the wind. KastKing realized that time is money in competition fishing and added this feature on the Elite series.  

Each Royale Legend Elite baitcaster, in every ratio, includes, 11 + 1 double shielded stainless steel ball bearings, carbon fiber triple disc drag to 17.6 lbs, heat-treated hardened aluminum main gear, brass components and brass manganese pinion gears and stainless steel mainshaft and kick lever that make it ready for saltwater use, and a 10-level adjustable magnetic brake.

"We did a lot of refinement to our processes and then put the KastKing Royale Legend Elite in the hands of professional anglers. The plan all along was to create one platform that would appeal to tournament anglers, and at the same time, be affordable for amateur recreational anglers. We are pleased with this latest product line development that sets KastKing apart from other brands," says Tom Gahan, Chief Marketing Officer at KastKing. "Based on our designs and features that model the KastKing affordable innovation concept, Royale Legend Elite will also be popular among high school and college team competition anglers who are often seeking quality fishing tackle on a limited budget."

The KastKing Royale Legend Eite carries an on-line selling price ranging from $69.98 to $75.98 depending on gear ratio. It will be initially available at Amazon.com/kastking. Left and right hand models in the same ratio are the same price, and have a one-year warranty.

"Designed for competition; engineered for the win is our new mantra. Our KastKing Royale Legend Elite series represents that," says Tate Cui CEO at Eposeidon - KastKing. "It is already being used in B.A.S.S. Elite tournament competition.Starting this week the Royale Legend Elite will begin to make its way on to the decks of many more bass tournament boats.
