KastKing Sharky Baitfeeder III Spinning Reel

The KastKing Sharky Baitfeeder III Fishing ReelOne of the more unique fishing reel options from KastKing is the KastKing Sharky Baitfeeder III spinning reel.

If you are unfamiliar with baitfeeder reels, they have a primary and secondary drag system. Basically, this will allow a fish to take your bait and take off with it, and that secondary drag will let the line run.

When you crank your handle that should trigger that secondary drag off – letting the main drag kick back in and letting you set the hook. This is a very popular reel with live bait and chunk bait fishing.

This reel will have front and rear drag functions, an interchangeable right or left handle, stainless steel ball bearings, a stainless steel main shaft, and a really cool black and red color scheme.

These  features not only allow you to have a great looking fishing reel, but also a great performing fishing reel.
