2 New Kistler Rods

Recommended Posts

Some of the Kistler rods were recently on sale online, and i purchased two of them. The Kistler KBSBS80 Big SwimBait Special and the Kistler KDSS69 Drop Shot Special. I paired the SwimBait special with a Shimano Cardiff 400A, that i got for 62 dollars (Greentop in VA has some good deals on reels going on right now). With tax and shipping fees, the setup cost me 155. Not bad, for what i hope will turn out to be a nice swimbait setup. Any suggestions on what line to throw on there.  

Trying to decide what to put on the Drop Shot special. If you have this rod, let me know what you have it paired with, and what you think of it.

Thanks

Jason

I almost got that swimbait special rod. Tackle tour rated it VERY highly. I wanted to get it to start throwing big swimbaits but I don't want to get the rod and then have to spend hundreds of dollars on baits. Not yet at least.

Great deals!

I was thinking of getting some kistlers too since they had the sale at simmons.  I didn't and I kinda regret it now, if only they had a stcroix/loomis warranty I'd be all over it!

I have the DS rod, and use a 1500 series Daiwa with it.

Kistler warranty is a no hassle/FREE replacement.....at least the last 3 times I had it done.

Good buys.

Now it is time to join a bass club and go out on the lakes and rivers during the year and try your luck.

Any word on medical school????  ;)
