Reel Make & Model

MSRP ($):

KastKing Sharky is premium quality freshwater spinning reel with a serious bite. Available in sizes from 1500 to 10000, the Sharky can be used to catch a wide range of fish from sunfish to sharks.

The Sharky comes standard with 10 + 1 quality smooth ball bearings, CNC machined aluminum spool and handle, and a computer balanced rotor. An attractive and unique carbon fiber spool skirt (1500-4000) adds to this already premium package.

Sharky’s all graphite corrosion resistant body creates a very light weight yet extremely strong and durable reel that delivers a powerful punch. KastKing Sharky innovative design allows a low weight-to-size ratio. It weighs in at only 7.5 ounces/210 grams for the 1500 to only 23.4 ounces/655 grams for the 10000.

KastKing Sharky 1500 Lightweight Spinning Reel

This was my second open faced reel purchase and once again I was surprised at the performance. It performs almost just as good as my Pflueger Trion reel. The one thing I found wrong with this reel is when you start to reel there is a small catch when starting. As if the bearing is locking up. It may have just been a defect in my reel. It wasnt a huge issue really. I never had the chance to open it up and grease the bearing as we ended up flipping our canoe one trip and it got crushed between a rock and our canoe :-(

I will buy another one though
