(For Immediate Release - June 25, 2018 - Garden City, Long Island, NY) KastKing (www.kastking.com) a brand of Eposeidon, Inc., based in New York has brought two new exciting innovative rods to the world of catfishing.
 
Two models, the KastKing KatTech™ and the KastKing KastKat™cover an array of techniques and tactics for pursuing all species of catfish including giant blue catfish reaching 100 lbs. KastKing released the KatTech™ and KastKat™ casting and spinning rods after extensive development and testing.

KastKing KatTech™ uses custom rubber cork handles for slip resistance and easy removal from rod holders. All model rods have a large fore grip for added leverage and an oversized fighting butt that offer more leverage for landing large fish. An added feature is the KastKing bright chartreuse "Strike Tip" strike indicator for early strike detection in low light conditions.
 
"As an avid cat fisherman with more than twenty years of catfishing experience under my belt, and now pursuing the largest of blue catfish and fishing catfish tournaments I have used almost every catfishing rod on the market from the high-end rods to the cheaper brands," says Robert Tallman in Grapevine, Arkansas who founded AACH (Arkansas Area Catfish Hunters) in 1995, which now boasts almost 2,000 members. "But, none of them has compared to the quality , durability, and the performance I get out of the new KastKing KastTech and KastKat rods, which I have been field testing since December. These are the only rods I will now use and trust in my boat against the biggest of blue cats."
 
KastKing's new KastKat catfish rods for recreational catfishing offered in three spinning and seven casting sizes are built with 100% Linear S-Glass which offers incredible strength and lifting power, stainless steel double foot line guides, a cross wrapped non-slip handle, strong reel seats, and orange strike indicator tips.
 
"100% Linear S-Glass construction in the KastKing KastKat series rods offer a powerful, durable blank for incredible strength to weight ratio and lifting power that are perfect for big catfish," says Noraker who has been designing high performance fishing rods for decades. "The KastKat is perfect for the everyday angler and can be used all day long with confidence in all situations. We tipped the rods with bright orange strike indicators that make it easier to see tip movement in dim light.
 
"We used stainless steel double foot guides on KastKat. We know that these big fish can put a lot of pressure on fishing gear, so we use only stainless steel double foot guides with stainless rings that will hold up over time and deliver uncompromising performance and durability. And, yes, these rods could be used on other large species.
 
"For reels seats we used reinforced nylon. They are extra strong and hold large reels securely in place even under extreme pressure. Casting models feature a power trigger to improve grip strength and leverage. They work perfectly in conjunction with the crossed wrapped EVA handles on the KastKat."
 
Kevin-Scott van Vlijmen, a catfishing enthusiast in New Jersey who is the host of a YouTube channel dedicated to catfishing, Kevin's Catterman Adventures, says, "Never before has the catfishing industry seen such a quality catfish rod for such a great price. Both the KatTech and KatKast are going to change the catfish rod game... forever. "
