About the KastKing Summer Spinning Reel
The KastKing Summer spinning reel is an angler’s dream. Between its smooth casting, durable construction and signature aesthetics, the Summer is a reel worth notice.
Video Review of the KastKing Summer
Computer Numerical Control machined aluminum spool
The aluminum spool is CNC machined which allows for a more precise line lay, which facilitates more fishing line capacity. Also, the spool is internally lined with grooves that retain lube, maximizing performance over time.
9+1 MaxiDur shielded ball bearings
The KastKing Summer spinning reel has nine ball bearings that are resistant to corrosion, enabling them to stand up to exposure to seawater. As with any spinning reel, you will eventually need to maintain its internal mechanisms, but the superior ball bearings in the Summer take the sting out of that annoyance quite a bit.
Ease of use
The superior ball bearings, coupled with the instant stop one-way anti-reverse bearing, not only offer superior smoothness, but that smooth experience allows for even the most novice of novices to feel like pros when reeling in their first “big one”. That ease of use is only amped up further by easy casting and as well as reeling, thanks to the new machined pinion gear which allows the angler to be on the winning side of any fight a fish puts up. To cap it all off, the foldable handle is ambidextrous, so you can fish in comfort, whether you’re right-handed or left-handed.
The anodized aluminum spool and graphite frame are tough enough to stand up to whatever you put them through while also remaining anti-corrosive so they don’t punk out on you while you’re fishing the high seas. Meanwhile, the internals are also designed to hold up to tough use while also resisting corrosion, making the Summer a prime choice when durability is the primary decision factor.
The spool is a brilliant two-toned blue while the frame is white. The combination easily allows you to envision yourself fishing at sea on a blue-skied summer day, which is probably how they got the name KastKing Summer. (Or at least that’s how they got the reel’s name in this angler’s head-canon and no one can tell me otherwise.)
What you should enjoy about the KastKing Summer Spinning Reel:
- Strong enough to handle high seas and stubborn fish
- Durable enough to stand up to saltwater
- Great drag
- Reeling in is easy
- Ambidextrous capabilities
- High quality design facilitates a smooth fishing experience
- Aesthetically cool
- Easy to use, making it a great choice for beginners
- Made out of corrosion-resistant materials
What to consider:
- Those used to a spinning reel with ten ball bearings may find this nine ball bearing reel less smooth. However, this is only a small nuisance and many people can’t tell much of a difference.
Thoughts about the KastKing Summer Spinning Reel
The KastKing Summer spinning reel is a great reel for beginners and pros alike. I recommend it to any angler looking for a lightweight, but solid spinning reel. What makes it great for beginners is how easy it is to use. You can reel a fish in with confidence with this model; it’s easy and fun. But more advanced anglers won’t be bored, because the KastKing Summer is great to take out onto the sea where a lot of the heavier action is. What’s more, this is a spinning reel that can handle up to that heavy saltwater use all without becoming corroded. Moreover, compared to some other models, it just seems to be less effort with less annoyances, which makes it great for those who love to fish for relaxation as well as sport. Overall, the Kast King Summer is simply a great spinning reel.
