WHAT MAKES THE KAIGEN ELECTRIC REELS SO MUCH BETTER THAN TRADITIONAL ELECTRICS?
First of all, they are Electric or Manual so no need to worry about blown fuses or dead batteries when you have the big one on. They are much lighter, faster, quieter, smarter, and in many cases stronger than other
reels. They also have a line counter, level-wind, and auto-stop features. These reels make a great day of fishing that much better. No more hand cranking to check your bait.
ARE THE REELS ELECTRIC OR MANUAL?
Our reels are electric, manual or both. They can be strictly electric by
using the Speed Adjustable Accelerator Lever, strictly manual by using
the handcrank, or both by using the Speed Adjustable Accelerator Lever
and handcrank simultaneously. The handcrank remains stationary in
electric mode unless you choose to turn it.
DOES THE KAIGEN 500 XP HAVE AN AUTO-STOP FEATURE?
Yes, and it's great. This prevents pulling your swivel or rig through the
eye of your rod. Just engage the speed adjustable accelerator lever and
WHAT POWER SOURCE CAN I USE?
The reels are 12V (DC) like most other electric reels. A 12V battery is
your best choice, however a 12V (400 amp) portable jump starter will
last an entire day of fishing with up to 2 people using it.
What kind of power cord comes with reels? The Kaigen 500 XP comes
with 9ft (2.73m) power cords with alligator clips.
