It comes separately. We recommend spooling it with fluorocarbon line or monofilament like 12lbs. There are tons of tutorials online if you don’t know how to do so.
You can use the reel for saltwater but it’s much better for freshwater applications
The level-wind gear is disengaged when the cast button is pressed.
Absolutely, actually it is a great saltwater reel.
It can be a right or left hand. The handle can be switched to either side of the reel.
We’ve use our 5000 in Saltwater. To be honest last year We even submerged it while surf fishing with it, freshwater rinse after each use and stored for the winter. We figured being a very inexpensive reel, We’ll just beat on it. Serviced it 2 weeks ago for schoolie fishing, opened it up, 1 tiny tiny spec of rust, on the spool shaft besides. Still had grease in it, no salt, or sand. A quick wipe down, oiled and greased and it’s back in service. So We’d say for the money it will certainly work salt applications, had no problem taking down some 20lbs blues.
20 pounds of maximum drag, and it’s right handed. Great reel for the price.
We believe it is advertised as 6-12lb test. We use it with 12lb as I mainly use 3/8th to 1oz lures. It seems to work eaqually well with 8 or 12, so We go with the heavier to lessen broken line due to snags.
* The 5000 has some good weight and make sure you acquire the proper rod to offset and balance. This 5000 is a great snapper reel!
* It has a nice pushbutton break on the knob allowing for appropriate storage.
* Very smooth spinning action right out of the box.
* Easy forward and reverse switch accessible on the front base of the reel.
* The drag is also very stable and smooth, and not wobbly like some other poorly made reels.
* Overall well constructed and likely why the few extra ounces in weight.
* $30 is a steal compared to the more expensive brands and you are getting equal or better quality with this KastKing. "
