Machined cold-forged 6061 T6 aluminum spool and chassis
9-washer drag system
Consistent and precise drag settings
Deep black anodized finish
Our smoothest and lightest reel ever! A sealed, 9-washer drag system assisted by a one-way bearing allows consistent and precise drag settings, and provides protection from the elements. The spool and chassis are machined from cold-forged 6061 T6 aluminum for maximum rigidity for its open-frame design. In all, it’s a superb reel at an amazing price! Deep black anodized finish.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ags2n good buy
this is the second Kingfishser reel that I have purchcased. they are light, have adequate capacity, and a very smooth wind. the drag is easily adjusted over a wide range of resistance, and has a smooth action as well. the spool exchange is unusual, but readily performed, even on the stream (requires loosening and tightening of a screw). this is a good reel, and for the price, exceptional.

Very happy with this lightweight reel for my trout/panfish/bass rod. Cannot stress how light it is and how smooth the drag is. I didn't know what to expect when purchased as this was the new model and I couldn't find a lot of feed back on it, but I'm glad I went with it. Contains all the features i expect on a $300 + Reel. I would almost personally put a satisfaction gurantee on here if I could lol.
