Each Elite fishing reel has its own specific body color matched to a gear ratio. You can quickly identify the right reel for the job and fish more efficiently. KastKing Royale Legend Elite baitcasters are available in 4 different gear ratios: 5.3:1 (white), 6.6:1 (blue), 7.3:1 (black), and a very fast 8.1:1 (red).

Great Reel, Will Buy Another With Different Ratio For Versatility
It's hard to say anything negative about the Royal Legend Elite. It casts incredibly well, the retrieve on it is super smooth and noise free, the spool tension adjustment is incredibly simple, and the star drag adjusts with a very pleasing and audible click.<br /> This was my first baitcaster reel, and like many others, I was a little nervous about the learning curve. I've even had many friends tell me that they won't even use them because they don't like that they have to learn the technique. With that said, I did just a little research about how a baitcaster works, and how to make some very simple adjustments to make the reel play well with the weight of whichever lure I decide to use. I relied on the magnetic braking a lot in the beginning, which worked splendidly. As a matter of fact, the only major birds nest I threw was my first cast, on a new rod/reel combo, being the first cast after spooling up some brand new 30lb braid. I spent 5 minutes cleaning up the line, and I was off to the races from there. Now I'm hardly using the brakes at all, keeping it down to a level 3, as fishing pictures reflect above. Being able to use my thumb as a mid air throttle control has allowed me to land amazingly accurate casts, especially when I've accidentally put too much speed into the cast.<br /> For me, having to deal with one major backlash on a newly spooled reel that I've never used before is perfectly acceptable. The face that I, as a new baitcast reel user, have not had any issues since says a lot. I've let a couple of my professional bass fisher friends try this reel out and they liked it a lot, and I was able to try out some of their really high end reels as well for comparison.<br /> Ultimately, I've decided that I'm going to purchase another one for my next rod. It will likely be the white version, with a lower ratio. I love the 7.3, but it IS fast, and if I'm not careful I end up retrieving crank baits too quickly. This is why I'd like to get a lower ratio version, so that if I'm not paying attention and just reeling away, I can still reel in at a reasonable speed.
I purchased this reel in the 8.1:1 ratio to give Kastking another try. I had nothing but trouble with my Speed Demon but really like how this reel has preformed so far. I compared it side by side with my $240 Lew's and honestly, other than the feel, there didn't seem to be much difference in performance. I have only had the reel a short time so I cannot comment on durability or longevity but I see no reason why this reel wouldn't last. It casts great, brakes work well, tension knob and drag are perfect (areas my speed demon failed). There are only two things I can knock so far. The first is the tension knob does not click, which I would prefer. The second is the brake dial. It is a little tough to turn where it is set up. These are the only two complaints and neither of which would dissuade me from buying more. Great job with this reel guys!
It's great!
Another awesome KastKing reel. Exactly what I expected. Kastking has yet to let me down.
