KastKing's Masters Monofilament Fishing Line

KastKing's Masters Monofilament Fishing Line

Masters Mono v3Eposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc. of Garden City, New York, recently announced that they have two new fishing lines. One of those announcements caught the attention of a Midwest finesse angler who suggested that we should publish a gear guide about the new KastKing's Master Monofilament Fishing Line.

For decades on end, six- and eight-pound-test monofilament was the line Midwest finesse anglers spooled onto their spinning reels and used to employ their six basic Midwest finesse retrieves. And across those many years, these anglers spent countless hours retrieving a Midwest finesse rig, such as a 2 1/2-inch Z-Man Fishing Products' ZinkerZ rigged on a 1/16-ounce Gopher Tackle's Mushroom Head Jig, and they discovered that monofilament line — for some undeterminable reason — accentuated the essential no-feel element of our retrieves better than braided lines and fluorocarbon lines.

According to Tom Gahan, who is Eposeidon's marketing director, it has no peers in the world of monofilament fishing lines. KastKing worked with a variety of chemical engineers to create a unique chemical formula for manufacturing this monofilament line. At the same time, they created new methods and equipment to manufacture it. The result is an exterior surface that is exceedingly smooth, and that feature facilitates casting, as does its low-memory component. Gahan says it resists abrasions more than other brands of monofilament fishing lines. What's more, when it is underwater, it exhibits a low-visibility quotient, rivaling the low-visibility features of many fluorocarbon lines. It also possesses a low-stretch characteristic, which is an unusual feature with monofilament lines. Gahan calls it the-state-of-the-art monofilament line.

Many Midwest finesse anglers are frugal, and they have been reluctant to spool either braided line or fluorocarbon line because they are expensive. (And as noted above, braid and fluorocarbon lines seem to adversely affect the no-feel attributes of a monofilament line.) Therefore, these frugal sorts will be pleased to learn that the manufacturer's  suggested retail price for a 300-yard spool of six pound test is $11.98, and the price for a 300-yard spool of eight pound test is $12.98. But Gahan says Midwest finesse anglers will be able to purchase a 300-yard spool of either six- or eight-pound-test for less than $10 at several online venues. And Gahan also notes that KastKing manufactures 300-yard spools of 10-, 12-, 14-, 17-, 20-, 25-, and 30-pound-test, which  also carry the manufacturer's suggested retail price of $12.98.
