This video article about where are KastKing fishing tackle products are made may change the way you think.

Although many people think that KastKing products , including fishing reels, fishing rods, and fishing line are made in China, that is only partially true. KastKing is a brand of Eposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc., which is an American company incorporated in the State of New York, with headquarters in Garden City, Long Island New York. Most of the KastKing product concept and design work takes place in the USA. There is a KastKing product design office near Atlanta, Georgia and a product development office near Denver, Colorado, which also manages new product testing.

KastKing does manufacture fishing reels and fishing rods in China, right alongside almost everyone else including Lew’s, Abu Garcia, Penn, and most other brands in the fishing tackle industry. In fact, more than 80% of all fishing tackle is made in China. Even more interesting to note, most of the fishing rods and fishing reels for all brands come from just one city in China, Weihai (Way-High) , that is located on the coast of the Yellow Sea. It is often called the Fishing Tackle Capitol of the World! Weihai was originally a small coastal fishing village, so you can see how it got started in manufacturing fishing tackle.

Okay, as we said, KastKing manufactures products in China right along with other major fishing tackle brands, but that is only part of the entire story. KastKing also manufactures fishing reels in South Korea, and obtains fishing reel parts from Japan. KastKing makes products in Germany, such as KastKing Kovert fishing line, KastKing sunglasses components typically come from Italy and are designed with engineering from Switzerland.

But hold on a minute… KastKing also produces products in the USA. For example, KastKing solely produces KastKing KastPro braided fishing line in America.

So as you can see, Eposeidon and its KastKing brand are truly an international company creating and selling fishing tackle on a global basis. What keeps KastKing’s prices low and affordable are its direct to consumer business practices, which doesn’t rely on warehouse distributors, expensive traditional advertising, and the added costs of retail stores. KastKing does not rely on cheap parts or cut corners in manufacturing to keep prices down. As you may realize, the production costs of a KastKing reel are about the same as other major brands.

They all create an interesting picture of the development of the fastest growing brand in the fishing tackle industry. We hope this answers your question snout Where Are KastKing Products Made.

    Nice to know more about a brand that I use and like it 😀 👌

  2. Mike Walsh on December 19, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Great video!!! Peeling back the curtain on where gear is made makes it clear that KastKing products are just as high quality, if not more, than most well known brands. KastKing products take a backseat to no other brand on the market in terms of quality and performance. And they do that at a price that everyone can afford.

  3. Bastardmakrele on December 19, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Crocktest, how funny is that😂😂😂

  4. Bob V. on December 19, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Lamiglas makes several rods in Washington.

  5. TheMass33 on December 19, 2020 at 9:57 pm

    Can she read me a book to sleep. Gotta respect KastKing for clearing the air!

  6. Dante Guillermo on December 19, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    It would be nice if the quality control was a little better on the cheaper reels.

  7. James Powell on December 19, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    hey guys how do we get some hats and shirts etc I recently purchased a pair of 4000s and a pair of 6000s ….thanks

  8. TheTRUST8888 on December 19, 2020 at 9:58 pm

    Great video for shutting up all those that talk smack about your products. I started with your line and moved onto other products. Great products at great prices! Keep up the good work 👍🏻

  9. Willis Jones on December 19, 2020 at 9:59 pm

    Awesome video! I love KastKing products….

  10. Dwight Stephenson on December 19, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    Bring it ALL back to the USA. Whatever company jumps on this first will reap the rewards the most. You’re probably best suited to make it happen.

  11. Danny D Morales on December 19, 2020 at 10:07 pm

    Ny baby

  12. Matt Miller on December 19, 2020 at 10:08 pm

  13. Love Muzangwa on December 19, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    Am a fan of KastKing from first sight. Affordable Innovation indeed. Much love from Zimbabwe.

  17. Muhammad Al - Zaim on December 19, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    Spareparts is still difficult to find..

  18. DJ M on December 19, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    I love kastking product! I love the design and authenticity.

  19. OceanBorn Crete on December 19, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    How is it possible to find Kovert line and Kastpro braid in aliexpress stores located in China if they are made in Germany and US respectively?

  20. Bad Texas Bill on December 19, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    I have tried several of your products and I’m largely impressed. I’d buy from you if you took the bold step of opening a factory here in the US. I will pay more for products manufactured by Americans.

  21. DJ M on December 19, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    I’m really attracted the design engineering of Kastking product! Specially the colors! I’ve purchased Rod, reels, cap,shirt ,bags and tools! The design is modern into a higher level!

  22. BlackDog Fishing on December 19, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    Please bring your manufacturing to the USA. Currently, I own one KastKing reel and zero rods. You add this to your products "Made in the USA" and that will change!

  23. Trevor Ryan on December 19, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    I’m in the uk I’ve just purchased two spincast Brutus reels, one for Bass fishing in the sea & one for float fishing in rivers & lakes thought I’d try the reel for that type of fishing, as over here in the uk we have a big Coarse fishing (Freshwater ) Following.
    The closed face reel works perfectly on float & feeder rods too . I Also have the cork handled Spartacus bait caster , loaded with braid which is excellent for Pike fishing ….
    It would be nice if more tech stuff could be made Directly in USA & Europe & GB 🇬🇧, as all our countries are innovative & Engineers like myself along with citizens from the above continents value even more highly Directly manufactured goods – its the way forward .. Both in Manufacturing expertise , quality & jobs .
    However Kastking as a brand & innovation etc is excellent in my opinion . 🇬🇧……

  24. DYTangler on December 19, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    Great video.

  25. Rick Yang on December 19, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    Many people don’t realize or simply just don’t want to admit that Made in USA is only a good thing when it’s on high tech products. Our manufacturers for things like cloths, shoes, or in this case fishing products suck.

  26. nub Fishin on December 19, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    Props to KastKing for making this video as not many manufactures will. If a rod company states that the blanks are from Japan, or that they are shipped from a USA warehouse, designed in the USA, etc, but they do not flat out state that they are manufactured in the USA, then the product they sell is probably made in China. Kastking is probably the first fishing company that flatly stated that their rods and reels and made in China (right along with 80% of the other companies out there).

    I would love it if Kastking came out with a 100% USA made rod..even if they outsourced it to another company like Cashion, Lamiglas, or Kistler.

  27. * slrkls * on December 19, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    Imagine if you’d bring manufacturing to the states. Just because everyone does it, doesn’t make it right. You’d have a good chance to skyrocket to #1 by doing so. This matters to people, a lot !

  28. Kerry Schallon on December 19, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    I dont buy anything made in china…I’ll pay extra for Japanese gear…anything but CHINA the enemy.

  29. James Reed on December 19, 2020 at 10:30 pm

    I love your kapstan and salmon and catfish rods.

  30. M King on December 19, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Would be nice to see made in the USA with USA made components, I’d pay more!But I would not care…

  31. Robert Timmerman on December 19, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    I have two Kast King rods and 8 Royale and Royale II reels. All work great!! The rods are quality and were priced at a point that I felt confident about buying them. I have not been disappointed in either the reels or the rods.

  32. The Angry Bass on December 19, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    I’m no longer purchasing anything manufactured in China

  33. Robert Wallace on December 19, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    I love my kastking rod and reel… and plan to add more to my arsenal

  34. Kenny Haworth on December 19, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Because everyone else does something doesn’t make it right.
    It’s time for a company to be a pioneer. I’m willing to pay more. I hope this lands on the right eyes

  35. ask aarsæther on December 19, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Poor crock tho! But great products!

  36. Weekend Fisherman on December 19, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Kastking reels are from oversea. They are not made in the USA are they?

  37. Voxguitarsrock on December 19, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    I have and use several KK products.
    I like them all but it’s hard to support China with everything going on in the world right now.

  38. Matthew Jackson on December 19, 2020 at 10:37 pm

  39. Carp Crew TV on December 19, 2020 at 10:39 pm

  40. JONNIE ROCKER on December 19, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    I love My kasking reels. You should Start sell them in Sweden. Import fee kills the deal

  41. Kenny Haworth on December 19, 2020 at 10:40 pm

    Be the first to bring the manufacturing of rods and reels back to the United States. I’m sure your business would become number 1. I love your product but it is hard to buy knowing where the money goes.

  42. Jerry Pauling on December 19, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    Bring it to the USA for manufacturing

  43. The Rookie Fisherman on December 19, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    I have to agree with the comments below we need US manufacturing back in the US as a business owner I understand your way of business however someone has to take the first step don’t be like Apple.

  44. ET Fish Home on December 19, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    Bring it all home

  45. Louis Bensinger on December 19, 2020 at 10:44 pm

    I’ll stick to 20% made in USA

  46. Toby Pham on December 19, 2020 at 10:44 pm


  47. Bass Nazi on December 19, 2020 at 10:50 pm

  48. Ric Denali on December 19, 2020 at 10:50 pm

    So made in China…

  49. Rodney Green on December 19, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    I own 6 Rods Total & 5 are Kast King.

  50. Hello World on December 19, 2020 at 10:54 pm

    I am willing to pay a bit more for the products that are made in the USA. We need to bring back manufactoties to the USA.
