Kistler Rod Owners need Info

Recommended Posts

I am thinking about buying a Kistler Graphite Plus model # KD SSS63 I don't know any one who owns a Kistler rod so I,m asking my buds on the forum. I own 3-St. Croix Avid's and a Shimano Compre so I was wondering how the Kistler will stack up to them. The only other rod with the same specifications is the St. Croix Premier. So any input on the matter will be appreciated.

I don't know the particular rod you are looking at but I have a couple of Helium LTAs, one of them broke ( my mistake ) about six months after I bought it and the company replaced w/o problems, I don't remember the cost. St Croix warranty in excellent too, they raplaced one of my fly rods pretty quickly.

           I own several Kistler at the moment and will own a few more here shortly. The Graphite series are great rods. I own 2 of the baitcasing Graphites and 2 LTA Heliums love them all.

My helium Kistler performs beautifully.

But so does my All Star, so go figure.  ;)

I have a couple of Graphite series.  They are an excellent value, not quite as nice as my Avids, but much less $$$.

I have Graphite series and Helium models, 7 or 8 total. Love them all, you won't be dissapointed.

I've owned each Kistler model in the past (Graphite, Mag, Helium LTA, Helium LTX)  While all are good rods, the LTA's are the best bang for your buck, in my opinion.

I just bought my first Helium yesterday, an 08' He76HC.  I'm freakin' stoked.  I've had my eye on this baby for a few years now.  I really can't afford it, as I still have some Halloween props to buy for the yard, but I found a deal and couldn't pass it up.  8-)

Man i own 2 kistlers and I intend to buy alot more! they are really good rods that can feel the bite, but St.croix are about the same... If I were you i would test out a kistler and just see how you like it. ;D

I have 2 LTA's  One of them from when Kistler first introduced the LTA's and one a few years old too.  Very nice rods. As stated above, you will  not be disappointed.

This coupon was on the back of a recent Bassin' magazine:

I went to that website but they don't have any rods listed. If you just go to the homepage and browse through their rods, you can add one to the shopping cart and then if you go partially through the checkout process and use the code it works (at least it did when I tested it for the Magnesium series...)
