KastKing® Introduces New Carbon Construction Fishing Reel


KastKing® Assassin Low Profile Baitcaster weighing only 5.7 ounces expands lineup of solid carbon reels.

(For Immediate Release – Garden City, Long Island NY – October 12, 2016) KastKing®, a division of Eposeidon, Inc. (www.eposeidon.com) in Garden City, Long Island NY, has introduced another new innovative low profile baitcasting fishing reel, the KastKing® Assassin, made with carbon matrix construction body, side plates, and carbon fiber handle for extreme weight savings, corrosion resistance, and added rigidity.

At 5.7 ounce (163.5 grams) the Assassin is lighter than company’s best-selling lightweight carbon baitcaster the KastKing® Stealth, introduced earlier this year, which weighs just under six-ounces. The Stealth will remain in the product line.  The Assassin’s five drag discs are also made of carbon fiber that generate smooth, fade-free 16.5 Lbs. (7.5 Kg) of drag power.

 “The KastKing® Assassin once again represents our commitment to make high technology, yet affordable, fishing tackle products available to anglers around the world,” says Tom Gahan, Marketing Director at Eposeidon.Inc. “At 5.7 ounces it covers the light-weight demand, and offers an even lighter alternative to our KastKing® Stealth.  The all carbon construction Assassin, that includes optimum features at a price point below $60, is set to be another best-seller for KastKing®.

KastKing®’s state-of-the-art Assassin low-profile baitcaster features dynamic 6-pin centrifugal and magnetic dual brakes, durable 11 + 1 shielded corrosion resistant ball bearings, hard anodized aero-grade aluminum spool, and powerful precision matched 6.3:1 ratio brass gears.  The Assassin is saltwater fishing approved.  Assassin is finished in midnight black with blue anodized trim. It is available in right hand or left hand handle models and has a one-year warranty.

 “Don’t confuse the Assassin’s sub-six ounce weight with being under-powered or its low price reflecting an inferior reel,” says KastKing® Angler Consultant Darcy Hill in Charleston, SC. “We proved that during development work and testing on the Stealth. It cranked in one good fish after another and survived the tasks with zero maintenance. The same manufacturing practices were used, and improved on, to create the Assassin. KastKing® developed the Assassin to meet the needs of anglers who want a powerful light-weight reel to reduce fishing fatigue and have superior saltwater durability. KastKing® Assassin is a killer.”

KastKing® Assassin has an MSRP of $99.98 USD and will retail on Eposeidon’s network of online sellers in the upper $50 USD range.
