The Zephyr BFS Reel from KastKing is the first bait finesse reel released by an American brand. KastKing undertook an extensive design and manufacturing process to deliver the affordability and lightness of carbon fiber while offering the durability and smoothness of precision-made gears and bearings in a reel that weighs in at 5.6oz. Offering a 10lb drag system that utilizes carbon fiber washers, the Zephyr Reel can hold its own when targeting a wide array of species and fishing conditions using light lines and lures. A machined and ported spool paired with an eight magnet adjustable braking system allows the Zephyr to cast a wide range of bait finesse-sized lures with controlled accuracy and distance. Other features include a drag clicker for an audible alert of the line being played, EVA handle knobs, and clicking drag star and tension knob for easy adjustments and tuning.

    Solid reel that performs well right out of the box. The soft touch knobs and the side plate lock are nice features. Drag clicker could be a little louder for my tastes but it works. Casts down to 1.5g baits/lures for me without issues, have yet to try to go lighter.

    This was my very first baitcaster. I’d used spinning reels and fly reels previously, so I had a bunch of bad spinning rod habits to break, and I made all the usual newbie mistakes. First, don’t fill up the spool; 40m is more than enough. Second, start with 1/8 oz test weights (or heavier). The rest was understanding how the spool tension and mag brake settings interact, figuring out how to clear overruns and bird nests, and eventually what kind of line I preferred.

    Eventually I went with JDM reels for trout-sized stuff, but I do still use the Zephyr in my kayak for tossing Ned rigs and the like (5-7g). Have caught some fairly hefty bucketmouths on this reel already and can definitely say that the drag works 🙂
