Kingpin R2 Reels

Pin It

Sold Out

Kingpin has responded to many requests by our customers and brought back a very popular design. The Royalty was a workhorse of a reel, so we upgraded it from its original design, with that a new name was in order. We call the new reel the R2. 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 downstream! The 4 ¾” diameter provides for faster retrieves on long drifts, than a smaller diameter reel. To fulfil most anglers desires to have truly unique equipment, Kingpin has provided 8 stock spool colours to choose from.

Marine Grade ABEC 7 Stainless steel bearings are standard.

Defence Standard Type 3 Hard anodized backplate for scratch resistance.

Custom options, refined craftsmanship, and a sleek design, make this reel a winner.
