“Each technique specific action is designed by experts with years of experience and with the input of tournament anglers who know and require only the very best in their tools. Rod weight, length, action, power and even handle length are purposefully built to ensure anglers they are maximizing the effectiveness of every fishing rod. There are currently eleven models including two spinning and nine casting models all in one-piece designs.
KastKing Speed Demon Bass Rods are covered by a limited lifetime, warranty on the workmanship and materials of the rod for the original owner. KastKing has set the initial online discount retail price at $79.98 USD they will be available from KastKing in mid-April 2018.
KastKing’s third entry in their triple crown line up of rod offerings at the 2018 GEICO Bassmaster Classic presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods is the KastKing Calamus Ultra-Light Spinning Rods.
“We named this rod ‘Calamus’, the light yet extremely strong part of a bird feather, more commonly known as the quill,” says Tom Gahan, Chief Marketing Officer at KastKing. “As was the case with the development of the KastKing Speed Demon Pro Rods and our STS Speed Demon Bass Rods, we left nothing on the table in terms of the type and quality of the components and the cosmetics.”
KastKing will offer nine spinning models of the Calamus rods. They are all two-piece KastKing Micro Polish IM7 30 ton (30 million modulus 650K strain rate) carbon blanks that are in the ultra-light class with moderate fast to fast actions. All size Calamus rods have V-Mark titanium guides, ultra-light premium EVA handles, split rear handle design to reduce weight and improve balance, and SKSS two-piece reel seats for weight reduction and sure fit. All of these weight saving features result in complete ultra light fishing rods that weigh as little as 2.5 ounces.
“We see that bass anglers often enjoy fishing for bass and other species on light tackle,” says Gahan. “That’s why we are sending these to the Classic. KastKing Calamus Ultra Light spinning rods are great for panfish, crappie, smallmouth, and trout fishing. We have not finalized the retail price at this time for Calamus, but we will by the Classic next week. Like the Speed Demon Pro rods and Speed Demon bass rods, Calamus ultra light rods will be at fantastic, affordable price point. At this time we estimate the average retail price to be below $60 USD per rod across the series.”
KastKing Calamus Ultra Light Fishing Rods will be available to the fishing public in four to five weeks after the GEICO Bassmaster Expo presented by DICK’S Sporting Goods weekend March 16th weekend at Lake Hartwell, SC.
“We are pleased to introduce our new ‘Affordable Innovation’ fishing rods to anglers with features that far exceed the price. We feel these super quality rods will become the benchmark for the best value in fishing rods,” says Tate Cui CEO at Eposeidon. “Once again we will live up to our promise of keeping fishing fun…by keeping it affordable. People should not consider the low cost as low quality. These rods are as good as any other on the market. And, in many ways are better.”
Last month KastKing introduced other new rods, the KastKing STS salmon and steelhead fishing rods at the Pacific Northwest Outdoors Show in Portland, Oregon.
