nothing but love
brilliant little reel, which works incredible well while being affordable. No need for fancy expensive reels
New price increase
Really good real for the price at $60 it has a decent line Lay. overall it was with buying, but they recently upped the price I don’t think it’s worth $85. What happened to affordable innovation
Fishing
Exactly what we were looking for went great with his custome pole. Smooth realing.
Works well
Tried this for the first time since purchasing the other day and it worked good, strong product
New Zealand - Kayak Salt Water Review
SHARKY III GOLD REVIEW

First purchase from Kastking. Researched this manufacturer for a few weeks before deciding to give them a go.
I fish entirely saltwater, primarily from a kayak, mainly softbaits, sometimes jigs/sliders/lures.
I normally use 4000 size reels, but decided on a 5000 due to wanting 200m of 30lb braid.
This worked great with super kast 9 being 0.28
So added to my kart, A few days later got a mid summer sale 56% off sale.
I ended up getting the sharky 3 gold and the super kast 9 braid for $62 US with free delivery.
Are you kidding me? Unbelievable!!!!!

So the reel arrives, I had planned a few kayak trips as I had a week off on annual leave.
Instantly I noticed the box was crushed in transit and the bail wire and housing was damaged/bent.
I contacted KK International team, they replied and wanted to replace/refund, I didnt want to refund/replace.
I had trips planned so I straightened the bail and fixed the housing movement with some JB weld marine.
I suggested it be easier just to send out a replacement bail and not a whole reel to which they got onto it right away.
I have since spend almost 80 hours on this reel. It has seen a few dunkings, tons of salt.
I've always washed it with freshwater, either hose down with rest of my gear or in the shower after cleaning up.
I have not stripped it down and serviced it yet and it still operates as smoothly as the day I got it.
I have caught more than two dozen 1-3 KG snapper (40-55cm) a few 3-5 kg (60-75cm) Kahawai which are always a fun fight.

Here's my pros and cons

Pros:

Its Sealed - Major, especially if you kayak and fish salt water.
Metal Frame - Not a fan flex
Price - Even though i got it 56% off, still unbelievable
Smoothness - I'd say its as smooth as my Nasci (known for its smoothness)
Retrieve - Personally I find 5.2:1 perfect for softbaiting.
Carbon Drag - I will never go back to felt, 1 big fish and its cooked.
Customer Service - They handled the shipping damage issue professionally, for me this is how you get returning customers.
Braid Read Spool - Enough Said
Spool Stack - Stack's nice and even, no heavy points or gaps.

Cons:

Threaded Handle - Even though I only use instant anti-reverse, I can see for those that might use reverse winding may have issues with it coming free and unwinding
Handle Knob - Mine has a fraction of a millimeter play, When there is no play anywhere else, i'm going to notice this micro movement. Not really a con.
Bail Roller - Make sure its lubed as sometimes it wont roll and may heat up if not able to roll freely. kind a maintenance thing really.
No Shims included - Some reels include shims to allow you to stack the spool differently, some like top heavy/bottom heavy etc.
I like it perfectly even so its not a problem but for those looking to change this, you may need to find some.
Customer Service - Even though they handled my issue professionally without hesitation, being in New Zealand I have such a huge time difference, It may be a hassle for some waiting for 12-24 hour replies.

Conclusion:
I'm going to make this easy as I am already looking at my next purchase from Kastking
The conclusion comes down to 1 simple question. If it was stolen or destroyed tomorrow, would I go out and buy another one???
The answer - DAMN STRAIGHT I WOULD!

There are only two reels i'm interested in even though your range is impressive.
I would buy a rod but I cannot find any 1 piece rods (all i use) and/or rods suitable for kayak/salt water application.
Im only interested in zero flex bodied reels, so this leaves me with 2 choices, more sharky's or the megatron.
So im getting a custom rod made (will post when built) for the megatron to get the monster snapper/kingfish/trevally on. Cant wait for that review.

Recommendations for the Kastking Team:
Please make bait feeder versions of the sharky gold and megatron. Also a fully sealed megatron (kiss?)
I would love to see some kick ass saltwater 1 piece rods, rock,surf,boat,kayak etc - look after the saltwater guys please =)
Also better matched bundles for your products on ali-express - perhaps tailored bundles with specific uses in mind?
