Kistler Klx

Recommended Posts

I own a KLX Punching stick, which I received fairly recently and only fished with a handful of times.  So far, I like the stick a lot.  Lightweight and very sensitive.  The blank is great.  It is comfortable to fish.

 

As long as you know that you are getting a great blank with decent hardware....then you'll be satisfied.  The wraps are basic, and the rod isn't flashly.....but it is a great fishing stick.  

I will be purchasing more KLX rods.

Easily the best rod under $250 that I've ever had the pleasure of using (which includes a LOT of rods). KLX rods aren't flashy, but they're some of the cleanest builds out there. The Fuji K-Series Alconite guides are great, the NFC blanks are incredible. I definitely recommend getting the full grip over the split grip. Definitely worth the money and then some.

I hear nothing but great things about klx.  In fact it may be my next purchase.

If I had to switch all my rods out for one line, these would be it

Will be picking one up the 7'0 Medium Heavy Cranking rod. if i like it i will purchase more! 

How does the rod balance with a 6.0-8.0 oz reel and which weight reel is the best for it?

I had a Metanium DC on mine, weighs 6.9oz, and it balanced right at the front of the foregrip. It's not a very large foregrip though, so that's only an inch or so in front of the reel. A moderate taper should balance a little better, as I had the faster model, which weighs a little more. I think you'll be pleased, they're fantastic rods.

I have the 7 foot my CRT rod with a Zillion mounted on it. It also balances right in front of the hood and this reel weighs over 8 ounces. Just shows how well balanced these rods are
