Kistler Helium 7'0 Med Spin Help

Recommended Posts

Looking to add a dedicated drop shot rod to the kayak arsenal so I'm taking a hard look at this rod. I picked up a Helium 6'9" casting rod earlier this summer and its quickly become my favorite rod as I throw a lot of T-Rigs/ Jigs where I fish. Would be targeting largemouth in smaller lakes/ponds that have a decent amount of vegetation. New to the drop shot game but its quickly become a favorite technique. Anything you can share about the Kistler, or other recommendations in the say $250 -$300 range appreciated.

Thx T

I have Kistler's 7' M/F Mag-2.  I use it primarily for wacky Senkos/finesse T-rigs and figure it'd work just fine for drop shotting.

 

My current drop shot rod is Abu's Ike 7' M/XF.  This is my first season with it and so far so good.  I like the tip.  I also use this rod for Ned rigs.

 

I prefer Kistler over Abu, but I couldn't pass up the IKE because of price.  

 

I'd wait for Kistler's to go on sale, either on Kistler's or TW's site.

 

Best of luck.

That would be a great rod to get- and versatile enough to do other presentations as well. Important in a kayak sine space is limited. Well unless you’re the type to bring 8-12 rods.😃

 

I think there’s a 25% sale right now.

I have a Kistler Helium Medium light 7' that is amazingly sensitive, the guides are okay but I don't care for the reel seat. 

 

This is what I would get for Dropshot.

 

Also take a look at the Megabass Orochi XX whipsnake, that is a awesome rod for the price.
