Kast King reels

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

One Dbag mod over there insulted me for a video of mine that someone I don't even know posted over there. Claiming him to be a surrogate of mine. Then deleted the vid because of foul language ( i think i said hell once) claiming it violated website rules.
And called me names..(which violated their website rules)

I think 4 threads were closed down after my videos were brought into the discussion....(i only know due to pm's and emails bringing it to my attention. As I'm not a member nor a lurker. I have a feeling I wouldn't last long there.

Websites that disrespect and censor members who participate on topic and respectfully...I not a site I would show any respect to.

I tried joining just to "get woke" slap around one of their mods....but they don't take gmail addresses for account creation.

That site is a joke, the sad part is how many members they have to spew nonsense to.

Didn't their fearless leader threaten to sue some other forum for slander?

I have the Assasin and Carbon Stealth. I haven’t tried the Stealth yet but I fished the Assasin in the bay last weekend for spotted bay bass and it stopped engaging about half way through the day. I will say that the retrieve was smooth and quiet, but it makes a lot of noise on the cast. I opened it up and found out that the clutch spring wasn’t kicking the lever to the pawl far enough to allow the pawl to engage the reel when the handle is turned. I only payed $42 bucks for it on AliExpress so no big deal. If all else fails I’ll try to see if I can salvage the carbon fiber handle. I also don’t like where they put the side plate release button. I wrap my index finger around the front of the reel when I fish and my finger comes into contact with the button. Not comfortable at all. The drag is just as smooth as any reel out there so that’s no issue. The drive gears are aluminum and are very small. I guess that’s how they can keep the weight so down. Based on my initial experience, I can not recommend this reel.

Glenn is a thoroughbred idiot. I had an excellent community reputation there with over 300 posts outside the flea market section. I hadn't listed anything for sale there in 2 weeks and I get a suspension notice out of the blue, for "selling too much". I know several mods and told them about it. 3 of his own mods went to bat for me and he basically told them to stop questioning him or they would be removed. He did msg me the next day saying the suspension was lifted and that he is sure I "got the point". I replied, likening his moderation style to the 1930's Germany gov't. propoganda machine. So I basically called him a Nazi and told him I wouldnt be back. That guy is a complete doofus. :roll:

Ha. I like you guys. Kast King reel nonsense was the reason I left the site in question. Bad case of group think over there. The rod rack is hella good though, as mentioned previously.
