KastKing's FluoroKote

KastKing's FluoroKote

On Dec. 16, 2015, Eposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc. of Garden City, New York, announced that KastKing has a new fishing line. It is called FluoroKote, and they lauded it as a high-grade fluorocarbon-coated fishing line, which is made by covering a copolymer core with a state-of-the-art and 100-percent-pure fluorocarbon coating.

In a Jan. 5 email, Tom Gahan, who is Eposeidon's marketing director, told us that some Midwest finesse anglers -- especially those who pursue smallmouth bass in rivers and streams that flow at a significant pace -- will like FluoroKote because it sinks, while braided and monofilament lines do not sink.

When Midwest finesse anglers ply crystalline waterways with it, Gahan says it will be an asset, because FluoroKote becomes virtually invisible when it is under the surface of the water. (This visibility factor, however, is gauged by human eyes, and not by the eyes of largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and spotted bass.)


What's more, FluoroKote is much more abrasion resistant than monofilament, which can be an advantage when Midwest finesse anglers ply waterways that are infested with zebra mussels.


In comparison to 100-percent fluorocarbon line, FluoroKote is suppler. Its memory quotient is much lower, which makes it easier to cast and less likely to create air knots, loops, and other types of line quagmires that can occur when Midwest finesse anglers fill the spools on their spinning reels with 100-percent fluorocarbon line.

One of the elements that has rested at the heart of Midwest finesse anglers since it was pioneered by the late Chuck Woods of Kansas City, Missouri, back in the 1950s and 1960s is frugality. And Gahan says, "The bonus of KastKing FluoroKote line is its exceptionally lower price compared to pure fluorocarbon line, while maintaining the best characteristics of pure fluorocarbon."

Via the Internet, Midwest finesse anglers can purchase a 300-yard spool of either six- or eight-pound-test Fluorokote for $5.98, and a 300-yard spool of either 10- and 12-pound test for $8.98, which is considerably less than the suggested retail price of $13.99 for a spool of either the six or eight pound test and $14.99 for a spool of either the 10 and 12 pound test.
