Ecooda Tiro Pro Series Caster Round Baitcasting Reel Review-Tiro 50A Right Handed

So everybody knows, this is how my reviews work. I will copy information about the product from Amazon, so you get the information from the companies own mouth about the product I will add a picture, then I will give you an opinion about the product in my own words. I think it is important to have the information from the company and an unbiased opinion, so you know the most about each particular product.

  • A Tiro round conventional professional grade quality bait cast reel is excellent fishing tackle for jigging or trolling, is 100% saltwater ready, and looks great on your favorite saltwater or freshwater fishing rod
  • Classic black and gold colors. One-year warranty. Great reel for both freshwater cat fishing bottom fishing and saltwater fishing for fluke
I received this reel in exchange for an honest review. We set this reel up to fish in the ocean. However, we practiced in a pond on the end of the community where I live. We set it up for bass, just in case they were hungry on a very hot day, not likely. Doug put a fake worm, high enough to keep it out of the seaweed like grass. We taught my son (who is eleven) how to cast this rod and reel. My son could not pick it up. I think the pole was a bit too large for him. I was the one who did the casting to review this reel. We put the KastKing Braid line in this beautiful reel. I learned to get the best cast, you throw up and out. I love how smooth this reel is and how you can feel everything very easy. I only got one bite, which was from a fish too small to catch. He nibbled, but there was no way to catch him. Besides, who wants to be the one who catches the only tiny fish who is biting in your little pond anyway? Friday evening (depending on the weather), our plan is to try this rod and reel in the ocean. It may have to wait a few days because we have had nearly constant rain for over a week in Florida. We practiced this reel for an hour and a half and it began to rain again, just as we finished our practice. I expect to catch a lot of nice fish with this reel. I can't wait to get a big one to bite and feel him fight. Will let you know if and when we catch some red snapper or flounder.

KastKing World's Premium Monofilament Fishing Line Review

So everybody knows, this is how my reviews work. I will copy information about the product from Amazon, so you get the information from the companies own mouth about the product I will add a picture, then I will give you an opinion about the product in my own words. I think it is important to have the information from the company and an unbiased opinion, so you know the most about each particular product.

Unique design of paralleled roll track, lines never sink into the spool
Specially made for saltwater fishing
Superior abrasion-resistance
Soft and supple
Low memory for easy casting
The new Talema Premium Monofilament Fishing Line series is manufactured under strict quality control standards. These standards provide you with a monofilament line that has superior resistance to abrasion.
Our unique paralleled roll track design will perfectly prevent lines from sinking into the spool, so it helps you to cast smoother and further.


I received this product in exchange for an honest review. Amazon screwed up the order. I ordered 15 lb line, Amazon changed it to 14 lb line and sent me 6 lb line. We used this line for the start of our line in our reel. We also used it for my reel that I use in freshwater to catch the smaller fish. The line is easy to use, strong and does not tangle. I wish it was what I ordered, but it still works fine. I did not get any bites where I fished because it was in the middle of the day, very hot. The line casts very good, with the KastKing Royale Legend High Speed Low Profile Bait fishing reel. I actually likes how it works better than the braid line. The braid line bunched up sometimes when I threw a bad cast. This line does not have that problem. Again, would rather have what I ordered, but I found a good use for this monofilament fishing line.

Setting up the Ecoda Trio Caster EX ETCII 50A reel



I bought a pole at Walmart to use with the first KastKing Reel I received. Doug is changing the new reel to my larger fishing pole because I will use this reel/pole combination to fish in the ocean. He is setting up the other KastKing reel on the smaller pole for fresh water fishing. We noticed that the new reel works excellent with the KastKing Braid line and will change the smaller set up to filament line. We will try the 6 lb line for the fresh water and may change it to a heavier line in the future.

Fishing with Ecoda Trio Caster EX ETCII 50A Reel



I was more testing out the casting with this new reel, than actually trying to catch fish. I could tell within fifteen minutes, we had no chance of catching fish in this water, Too Hot. Looking forward to casting my line out in the salt water on Friday. I believe we are going to change our bait to live shrimp.

Teaching kids how to fish with the new fishing reel


This little pond is a good bass area, but not this time of year when it is really hot. The bass weren't even jumping today. We use this smaller pond to practice casting with the new KastKing reels. I noticed my son had trouble casting with the new reel. I found if you cast up and out, this new reel has no limit on the distance you can get. In this video, the kids are learning how these new lures stay out of the grass and look real to the fish. My son got one bite, but I believe the fish was too small for the hook.

Cool multi-function Fishing tool By: Kastking



We hope to be able to use this fishing tool Friday, when and if we actually catch some fish. I have to go to Walmart to get my free salt water fishing license. We used to be able to fish without the license, but even Florida residents need the fishing license. The only difference is we don't have to pay.
