W1-10

dual purpose diawa/kistler

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about getting one of these for c-rigging and light cover jig pitching. What do you like of the two? I've handled but never thrown either brand.

-> kistler graphite series 6'10 heavy/fast 1/4oz - 1oz lure wgt.  12# - 25# line wgt.

-> diawa light and tough 6'6 medium heavy/fast 3/16oz - 1oz lure wgt. 10 - 17 line wgt.

brokejw: you got me thinking after that post about the diawa L&T.

I have owned the Kistler Graphite Plus (called California Series back then) Jig N Pig Special. (6'10" H fast) I wouldn't consider it a light cover rod unless, you are trying to pull the light cover out of the water. Maybe a little short for a carolina rig rod.

If you're doing light pitching, I'd say don't go below 7ft .

The L&T is definitely too short for both, at least for me. I did all my pitching with a 6'10 mh and hated it.

Does Kistler make a 7ft heavy? if so that's what i'd go with for sure.

Not necessarly only for light cover, but able to be used in light and medium cover situations. You said "owned," anything you didn't like about the rod?

"The L&T is definitely too short for both, at least for me."

I agree somewhat but I really like how the handle is contoured.

I sold it but, in hindsight, probably shouldn't have. I upgraded to Mag TS's. I liked it just fine.
