Top Positive Review


I have a lot of experience fishing. I have competed at a very high level of fishing. I was just looking for an inexpensive basic spinning real. I was very surprised at the quality of this spinning real. I have compared it to my name brand, more expensive reels, and wished I would have known about this brand when I was paying three times for the same quality of gear. It is smooth with a smooth drag system. I would definitely recommend this product for people to try before spending more for a product that doesn’t function as well.

I got this reel and loved it. Great anti reverse. Silky smooth rotation. Great spool for using braid. Good drag. Sturdy construction.
I couldn??t wait to use it!
So I took it out fishing less than 5 times in total. Worked great!
Then it stopped working correctly! Here??s what happened. I took a cast, reeled it in fine. Took another, and this time the handle wouldn??t turn! Couldn??t believe it. I flipped the drag switch off, and then it started turning, but then it wouldn??t move the spool forward and back, so the line won??t lay correctly.
I think the gears inside must be defective somehow.
I loved the reel, but it shouldn??t break so quickly. I hope KastKing could send me a new one. The new one probably wouldn??t break.
Thanks.

Customer Questions & Answers


what line should i use for the 5000 aim doing freshwater fishing for bass and pike
Answer:

I’d use some 30-50lb @kastkingusa KastPro braided line, that aggressive weave is strong as **** and I’d run a heavy 40lb Mono/ Fluorocarbon leader (big bass) or a 50lb woven steel leader (Musky & Pike). Really though I use a Sharky 3 3000 model and it can handle most freshwater fish under 40lbs. The Sharky 3 5000 mod??

What size reel would be good for 7′ Medium light rod?
Answer: I have 2 of the 4000 models on my 7 foot rods. They work like a charm. The 3000 would probably work just fine but I got the 4000s for the added capacity for long distance fishing from shore.

Sharky III bail’s wont close by rotating the handle after casting, is that normal? or its manual bail system?
Answer:

My Sharky 3 bail will close by turning the handle. A drop of oil may fix this. But using the handle to ??automatically?? close the bail really isn??t a good practice. It can induce a ??loose spot?? in your line that can cause birds nest when casting, and is actually kinda hard on the reel. I suggest manually closing t??

Does this reel come preloaded with line?
Answer: No it does not come preloaded with line. You will have to buy your own line.
