Kistler Rods?

Recommended Posts

Have been looking in the local Cabela's at Kistler Helium Rods. I went in there yesterday, and they have the rods marked down to $89.99 from $350.00.

Is there something wrong with these rods? Why the big mark down?

I am really tempted now....

They are changing their rods again these are closeout models to make room for the new ones.

That must be an in store price because they don't have them marked down that low on the site but it is a great deal

Tell you what, let us know the sizes, I'll choose one, pay you for the rod and actual shipping and I'll let you know how they workout.   :o

Kamiahkid,

If that is in fact true then I would buy every one they had! I have alot of Kistler Rods (18) and I receive their monthly news letters that Trey puts out as well as frequent their website and I haven't heard a word about them changing anything.

Chris W could you let me know where you heard about the change? I would be interested in knowing before I order a couple more during the off-season. The only thing I've heard recently is the introduction of their custom rods. Customers will be able to design the rod from the ground up.

A regular price of $350 would have to be their top of the line Helium 2 LTX rod. I've not only ever seen this rod on sale but I've never seen it sold is a large chain store. What Cabelas is this? For that price, if they have several I'm up for a road trip!!!

The Kislters are in the Bargain Cave at Cabelas website but not at that deep of a discount.  If that is the Helium II on sale, I'd almost be up for a trip to a Cabelas too, the nearest one is 5hrs but almost worth it.....almost

Are you sure? That just can't be correct.

If it is, go in and buy me the 7' MH LTX and I will send you $150. Seriously, I'm not kidding.

Looks like the Kistler Argon Rods are going for $139.99 at least on the site for both the Spinning and Casting models. The LTA Casting is $199 and the Spinning LTA is $229 and the Carbon Steel Casting is $79 but the Spinning is still at the regular price as of this morning on the site.

Local BPS had a bunch of them marked down to $89.99 a few weeks ago. I thought about picking one up, but I really don't need any more rods...hell, I actually need to get rid of a couple.

It's the Boise, Idaho store, and they have 2 rods left, both 7' spinning rods, medium action.

They are changing blank manufacturers and switching to micro guides, this has been announced for several months now.
