Over the years I have owned some really fine spinning reels . The legendary Swedish Abu Cardinals were the bench mark I measured other reels to . I owned a Cardinal 57 and a Cardinal 55 . Each gave years of service until parts became hard to obtain . I owned Penn Spin Fishers and a couple of Shimano Stradics over my fishing journey .
This Kodiak from KastKing is the smoothest reel I have ever owned straight from the box . I purchased it for finesse fishing around the Werribee River . The drag on it blows me away . Not one but two sealed stainless steel bearings are contained in the mechanism . You just touch the spool and it gives line . Yet it as 15KG (33 lbs ) of drag setting to turn the big ones away from snags etc .
I did a tear down of the reel , as our American friends say , no teflon coated gears here to be smooth for six months until it wears off . Won’t name the manufacturer . Just well machined stainless and gun metal gearing and pinions . . I have a Fin Nor Ahab 8 and 12 spinning reels . To me they are the standard to measure all spinning reels by . They are no longer made but sell on Ebay for upwards of $600 for a good one . The KastKing Kodiak compliments them in my fishing arsenal . The Fin Nor Ahab 8lb IGFA class reel weighs in at 595 grm . When your casting soft plastics , crank and jerk baits in a fishing session that gets heavy . The KastKing weighs in at 365 grm yet still has the strength of an all metal body . It will balance nicely on my Shimano Stradic 6 ft 1-3Kg line weight spinning rod .
How good are these KastKings ? A Shimano Stella 2000 size would have cost me between $1100 and $1400 . A Team Daiwa much the same . I was on Ebay one night and KastKing in their fun loving way posted "Make an offer on this reel " I offered $47 and bingo I won . On Amazon I have seen the Kodiaks for $200+ . I believe now that Amazon are building more warehouses in Australia they will hold the price down to the Ebay price .
I’m looking at KastKing’s Zephyr Finesse Spinning reel for testing . It has virtually replaced the Kodiak in their reel line up . It has a Carbon fibre body and comes only in 1000 size . Geared more for the American Ultra light pan fishing scene i. e. Blue Gill and the various fresh water species of Sun fish .
As a disclaimer I have no links to KastKing by way of cash for comment etc . I buy the reels I test if they don’t perform I will let you know . If other manufacturers offer me reels to test I will do so in an unbiased way .

Reel steel unboxing to
A lot of great gear!
Oct 06, 2020
I got my steel to reel box a few days ago and I'm blown away. I was a little bit weary about signing up for one of these subscription boxes, but steel to reel seems like the "reel" deal. Will be putting all of this stuff to good use this fall, and a few things are going into a bugout bag.
The perfect subscription box
Sep 17, 2019
Jessica A.Subscribed for 18 days
I bought this box after trying a couple other subscription boxes that my husband wasnt too thrilled about, he loves this one. Tons of neat and practical things that he was very excited to use. We'll be keeping this one for sure!
4 months and still impressed
Aug 19, 2019
I’ve been meaning to review this for some time. I’ve been getting steel to reel club boxes for 4 months now and am pleasantly surprised by the fact that I actually WANT to keep getting them. My first box was great but I was skeptical about how consistent it might be. Four months later and I’m still very impressed by what I’m getting. I’ve used a majority of the products I’ve gotten on 2 camping trips, a few weekends out fishing, and I already have a few things packed for hunting season. There were a couple of items that I couldn’t see myself using, but my son has already claimed them (he’s going to have to get his own box soon haha).
Best sub box I ever tried
Aug 12, 2019
I'll start this off by saying that this is best sub box I've ever bought. So much so that I upgraded to the Elite Explorer box after being so impressed with the Adventurer box. The value definitely did scale with the higher tier box, which is freaken amazing. The last box I received had well over $500 of really great outdoors products in it, and the fact that I paid way less than that makes me a "happy camper"! I'll be sticking with the Elite Explorer and will likely keep steel to reel club in mind for future gift giving situations. If you're reading this, you have my recommendation ;)
amazing christmas gift!!
Nov 21, 2019
I got the steel to reel Elite Explorer box on the holiday sale, it's going to make my son VERY happy. Thank you!
Liked it enough to buy another!
Jun 14, 2019
We liked it so much that I order another subscription for myself. I purchased an outdoorsman plus box for my dad and as we were going through everything we were really impressed with the sheer value of this subscription. We paid $60 for this box, but the contents are clearly worth more, not to mention that everything is actually pretty practical. I'd say we're going to be using everything that came at least once in the next 2 weeks. I just put in an order for myself so we won't have to argue over who gets what next month!
Good holiday gift for him
Nov 21, 2019
My fiance loves these kinds of survivalist gadgets and stuff. we do 2 camping trips a year so he's going to get some good use out of it. The box has a lot of cool brand name stuff.
Best box ever!
Jun 12, 2019
I have been very skeptical about subscription boxes. When I saw Outdoor Life was sponsoring one it immediately peaked my interest. After some debate I decided to go all in and bought the Elite Explorer. When my first box arrived I was totally dumbfounded at how many items were in the box, 14 items with the value being far above what I paid. I HIGHLY recommend this box! I cannot wait till my next one comes in. Thank you Steel to Reel Club.
Awesome products and customer service
Aug 29, 2019
Big thumbs up to the customer service team here! I ordered the wrong box at first but they helped me out and got me the box I wanted. It was a gift for my son and it was VERY well received. Hes become a pretty avid hiker and fisherman these days, and tells me that his Adventurer box always suprises him with how thought out the gear is. It's pretty much tailor made for him.
Couldn't be happier!
May 12, 2019
I bought this as a gift for my father and he couldn't be happier! I received the box yesterday and gave it to him last night - he went through all the items in the box with a big smile on his face. He loves the outdoors and was genuinely impressed with the gear in the box, and is already planning on using it on his next camping trip. Looking forward to next month!

Now I understand that this is how it should be, but then I could not imagine that this long tip would calmly enter me. After which my brother asked, does it hurt. And he complained that when you are not setting yourself, its harder to feel where to direct. In general, when he soon began to take it out, I thought that he changed his mind about putting it on me.
