KastKing has introduced the Speed Demon for 2017, an affordable 9.3:1 baitcaster reel.
↑ The selling price of the Speed Demon is scheduled to be in the high $60 (US) range.
↑ KastKing says that the Speed Demon is ranked among the fastest high speed baitcasting reels in the world.

US manufacturer, KastKing, says that breakthrough developments within the company has resulted in the Speed Demon baitcaster reel, which it claims has more features and outperforms other fast retrieve high speed models on the market.

In addition to its ‘blistering’ 9.3:1 ratio, making it among the fastest reels of its type in the world, the 2017 low profile model is said to beat all speed competitors with 12+1 shielded ball bearings and a 115mm handle that adds maximum cranking torque. In addition to fast retrieve speed, it features a revolutionary trilateral braking system to virtually eliminate backlashing.

The Speed Demon also has a ‘state-of-the-art’ four disc carbon fibre star drag system that develops 13.2lb (6kg) of drag power.

“Another outstanding feature is its retail selling price, which is scheduled to be in the high $60 (US) range, less than half the cost of other speed baitcasters that have less features,” said Tom Gahan, Marketing Director at Eposeidon Inc.

“As far as fast retrieve reels go, on a scale of one to 10, the Speed Demon is an 11,” says KastKing product development specialist, Paul Quigley. “It’s a screamer.”

Other features include cross-drilled aero-grade aluminium spool, brass gears and sure-grip flat paddle EVA knobs.

Eposeidon CEO and founder, Tate Cui, adds: “The Speed Demon is really a great example of KastKing’s innovative ability. KastKing is not just about being the best price on the market, but also dedicated to becoming a leading force in the recreational fishing market. We explore the areas that our big competitors wouldn’t touch.”
