KINGPIN 425 R2 Centerpin Float Reel (4.25″) *DARK BLUE*


Out of stock

Kingpin has responded to many requests by customers and brought back a very popular design. The Royalty was a workhorse of a reel, so Kingpin has upgraded it from its original design, with that a new name was in order, Kingpin has named this reel the R2.

Kingpin uses ‘L series grade’ aluminum which is true Aerospace grade. Its stronger and purer, which enables Kingpin to machine more away, while at the same time, not sacrificing strength.

All exposed edges have a radius to make the R2 very comfortable in hand. The palming rim is the absolute best design in the industry. No “hot spots” from trying to stop an angry fish on the run. A proven design that has stood the test of time and will continue to be a true work horse.

The slots Kingpin mills into the inside of the drum where the lines lays really emphasize the precision milling. Making them only 3mm in width is much harder and more time consuming. Most reels have no slots but the ones that do are not like this!

All Kingpin backplates are Defense Standard hard anodized. Reels are always laid on their back so it makes sense to make them scratch resistant, tougher than steel. Its twice the cost but five times better. Kingpin is the only manufacturer of centerpins that applies this process as standard.

425 R2 features a vented line bed and a lever check switch.
