KastKing Adds Two More Pros


KastKing taps bass fishing Pros in two different tournament series for Team KastKing.

Garden City, Long Island NY) KastKing is pleased to announce that they have added two more pro-anglers to Team KastKing – Max Hernandez from Queen Creek, AZ and Richard Cooper from Benson, NC.

Professional bass angler Max Hernandez says, “I'm excited to announce my new partnership with Kastking for the 2021 tournament season. I love the smooth casting, strong drag and crank power of KastKing reels, paired with their rods that provide great sensitivity, but have the back bone to pull fish from heavy cover. I'm proud to be part of the Kastking Team because that combination will help with my success for the upcoming tournament season.”

Max is Vice President of the AZ Bass Federation, and was 2017 AZ Angler of the Year and 2019 AZ Bass Federation Angler of the Year. He has fished: AZ Bass Federation Circuit, Wild West Bass Trail, FLW Costa Western Pro/Am, and won Bass U.S. Open.

Richard Cooper says, “I will be fishing the National Professional Fishing League (NPFL) tour for the 2021 season and I am very excited about joining the KastKing team. I love the constant innovation that KastKing provides at a very affordable price. I look forward to traveling the country fishing with KastKing!”

Richard has fished the: ABA Bass Pro Tour, CATT (Carolina Anglers Team Trail) with 3rd Place, CATT Championship, Kerr Lake, June 2019, FLW BFL (Bass Fishing League), Bassmaster Opens, Bassmaster Federation (NC B.A.S.S. Nation), and was a 2019 B.A.S.S. Nation Regional Qualifier in 2018 and 2019. He spends 120+ days a year on the water guiding and competing and has signed a contract to fish the NPFL tour for the 2021 and 2022 seasons.

“We are excited to have Max and Richard on Team KastKing,” says KastKing CMO Tom Gahan. “KastKing is always seeking quality pros who have the right attitude and ethics to expand the KastKing Pro Team. We are curious to see how the NPFL develops. The NPFL tour provides a tremendous amount of online streaming exposure through live on the water and weigh in coverage each day of each event.”
