The Kraken reel series has been our most consistent performer for over a decade. Its fully machined and lightweight design has represented the best value in the industry for years and it just keeps getting better. The last generation saw improvements to the drag housing and the knob shapes to help with performance in saltwater and with ergonomics. Now, we've shifted the drag material to a carbon multi-disc system to improve durability and top-end drag pressure. The sealed drag is ready for any environment, while still remaining easy to reverse if necessary without any additional tools. The Kraken series still boasts a U-shaped spool for both line capacity and ease of line pick-up, while now benefiting from stronger and still super-smooth performance across the full range of target species. Whether you're targeting spooky Catskills bank-sipping trout or hefty Florida Keys tarpon, there's a Kraken reel up to the task!

    Love it

    Love my reel! It's a 9 weight, and with 10 weight line it is like butter. Salmon and steelhead are no match!

    Excellent Reel

    Published by Richard Russo on 8th Aug 2017

    Put this reel on a 5 wt. Airflow Manic rod and I am very pleased. Smooth retrieving and excellent drag system. I may add the customer service is second to none.

    Purchased the wrong sized reel and decided to return when it arrived however, it was such a nicely built reel I kept. It replaced my primary 6wt reel and it performs flawlessly. An exceptional reel for the price. Thanks guys.

    amazing reel, amazing look

    Published by brandon on 4th Aug 2017

    Bought this reel and matched it to a custom made rod a friend of mine built. The quality and look are amazing out of the box. I went with the green color and absolutely love it. I was hoping the reel performed as well as it looked, after 2 weeks in Yellowstone I confirmed it did. I've caught many fish on the set up but have yet to hook into anything big enough to really utilize the drag, hopefully I can change that soon!

    Great Performance, Great Looks, Great Price!

    Published by David F Merical on 18th May 2017

    I bought the Size 2 Kraken in the Dorado color. It has performed flawlessly, even on 20+ lb Grass Carp. It's a great-looking reel, feels very sturdy and smooth. This is a great reel that doesn't break the bank! I ordered another!
