Its comfortable, low profile design yet high line capacity and incredible drag power make this the perfect big fish/big bait, casting reel.

The KastKing Kapstan 300 baitcasting reel uses a rigid and tough graphite frame and side covers to keep weight down and brass main and pinion gears for strength and durability and a stainless-steel main shaft for consistent performance, high speed and zero noise.

Kapstan 300 baitcasting reels use high-performance, double shielded, stainless-steel ball bearings (8+1), and a braid-ready, CNC aluminum, high capacity spool. These exceptional bearings reduce noise and increase performance and casting distance.

Since the Kapstan is made for big fish, big baits and tough conditions, KastKing used a powerful triple disc carbon drag system and that is not only exceptional smooth but will deliver over 35 lbs of fish stopping drag when you need it most. The Kapstan 300 bait cast reel is available in right or left-hand retrieve with 5.4:1 gear ratio delivering incredible power and torque when fighting large fish, trolling deep diving baits or casting heavy jigging lures.

Amazing reel
Used this bad boy this past weekend on a day trip going out to SanClemente Island. It performed amazingly, pulled out a 20lb lingcod. Let's just say this was the reel I stuck to the whole trip.
Great product

Really happy with price for product handles tog great and enough power to stop bigger fih

Awesome reels or are they starting to cut corners?

Awesome reels. fit and finish are great and they do everything I need it to from casting big swimbaits and spinners all day on my muskie rod to big weights and live baits on my flathead rod.Received my third kapstan and fit, finish and looks wise it's just as good as the others I have. However this new one has a lot of flex at the reel seat, time will tell if this will be an issue or not.Three stars because my other 2 are not as flexy, maybe I received a bad one this time.

My KastKing Reels

awesome reel with great drag. My best one yet.

Another great Kastking product

I own a few Kastking rods and reels(along with some other items from them). I was looking for a reel to use primarily for a musky set-up but didn't want to spend Shimano or Daiwa prices, both great reels but i don't musky fish frequently so the cost is more difficult to justify. So far, I couldn't be happier! The reel is solid, the drag is strong, it casts great, I realy don't have a single complaint.

I’m having issues getting the drag to hold. I’m using 40 lb braid. I can grab the line and pull it out with ease with the drag tightened all the way down.

By MartinCizmar 2019-07-25 06:11
How heavy and long or in general what rod should i pair with this reel? I usually target calico bass, yellowtail tuna, bonito and other “bigger” fish.

Yes, Kapstan has an on/off switch for the audible spool clicker when that feature is needed.
