I went out today with this reel, and man talk about back lash. I had to cut my line at one point. It was frustrating. I tried adjusting the breaks about a hundred times and still got some pretty back backlash as well.
I say you need to your shit a little, because you kinda do in order to set this reel up properly. If you're a beginner like me, either out doing research you'd just feel like you wasted 50 bucks.
You have to adjust the the magnetic break, and the tension knob of course, but if you don't do research on this reel you'll forget about the third break. The centripetal break, or all hell will rain down on you, and you want to toss the reel in the water.
After about 2, too 2.5 hours of casting this I remember the third break, and I was pretty frustrated my this point. But I set the centripetal break to 3 or half way. It was like magic. It went as gracefully as ever after that.
Do I recommend this reel? Yes. But please make sure you do some research first if you're a beginner at baitcasting. Most reel and rod combos at the store will come mostly setup for you. This one does not come like that at all.

I bought the KastKing Spartacus Plus for bass fishing in some local lakes around me. Holds a fair amount of 30 pound 9 strain braid. Super smooth casting and retrieval. Caught some nice bass pre spawn with this reel the drag help up very well. Overall I love this reel and will definitely be buying another one soon to replace a few crappy reels that I have!
It looked cool, felt good, I was happy when I opened it. I put 40lb braid on it and first time I went to use it, the braid kept getting pinched in a little gap between the spool and the body. I kept playing with the tension, but no matter what I did, there was still a gap that the line would get hung in every 20 or 30 casts. So then I switched out to 14 lb fluorocarbon. Same thing. I kept thinking what is happening? The spool was tight where there was no play in it, tighter than I ever use a spool normally. Normally I fish with the spool loose compared to most people. I am a thumb braking fool. I like the spool loose and the brakes low so my casts are like liquid smooth. I had it tight, where the bait wouldnt even drop, i had brakes high. Then id set it normal where theres a slow fall and brakes normal, then i’d set it loose with brakes loose. Same result, line kept getting pinch in edge of spool and body. Then I hooked prolly a 4 lb snakehead and was bringing him in. At the bank, the line broke. Not from his teeth, not at the knot, about 10 ft up the line where im sure there was a weak spot from it being pinched or getting hung between spool and body. Yo zuri topknot doesnt break easy, especially 14lb that was 3 hours old.
So i proceeded to go back to The condo and to take the spool out, inspect it, look at the body, look inside the reel.
My conclusion was that there was definitely a design flaw, or maybe I just got one that had a flaw. It looked to me like the edge of the spool should have shaped different to sit flush with the body. I compared it to royale legend elite and its different, but the royale spool fit perfectly to the royale body, this one didnt. I did not have the spool over-filled or anything like that. I thought that at first, but When i put the fluoro on, i made sure it was underspooled if anything.
So I sent the reel back for refund and went to bass pro in ft lauderdale and bought a $60 lews american hero cuz i know theyre reliable, cheap, and perfect for a vacation use freshwater baitcaster.
Update: As of 2 weeks ago, my royale legend elite just crapped out while bed fishing the spawn. Thumb button issues, and grinding. I use these reels maybe 5 days a year...thats why they are at my vacation house, not my main rods and reels. It was maybe 9 months old. I will never again buy a kastking. A couple days ago I came back to Florida cuz Im off for a few weeks for this corona virus stuff. I brought a couple of last years tourney tatula sv tws with me this trip to swap out because I got the new 2020 sv tws on my main rods. I will never again have to use cheap crap when I fish in florida.
Summary: Buy a Daiwa, Lews, or Shimano. Even the cheapest Of these brands is far superior to any kastking.
