Kistler Helium LTX

Recommended Posts

I bought a casting 2009 6'9" MH LTX with recoil guides a couple weeks ago. Just got 7'0' MH LTX spinning rod with SIC guides and used it this morning. Going from Fenwick Techna AV's and a Crucial, these rods seem super sensitive and light. I also got a spinning IMX a few weeks ago. This morning I only used my 2 Argons & 2 LTX's. I didn't have any desire to play with the IMX. I don't have enough experience with either the Kistlers or IMX to claim that the LTX has better sensitivity, but assuming you like the features & design, they are a lot of fun to use.

The Fuji ACS grip fits my hand perfectly, and today I really appreciated the open hookhanger.

Great rods bar none (but I like the new z bones better). I have the Helium LTX 7' MH and it is perfect for spinnerbaits and also the Helium LTX 7' M which I use for cranking. These rods are so sensitive and feather light it's unreal and with the FUJI ECS exposed blank reel seats you can feel every bite you get and is very comfortable to hold all day.

I can't speak for the LTX specifically, but the Kistler line as a whole are very good rods. I own several Mags, Argons and LTA's and love them all.

I have an LTA 7'6" flipping stick, as well as a 6'9" LTA spinning rod and love them like crazy.

My brother has the same rods in the old LTX series and they are more sensitive, but I personally like my LTA's better. I don't like the wrapped style grips on the older ones.

If you are lookng at the new ones that have cork grips, I like them better than the any other rod I have thrown.

Sometime during every fishing day I'll be using a Kistler Helium LTX (He2 MH69S)

It's my longest spinning rod, but one of my favorite.

Kistler just keeps getting better, and customer service is the best (loomis is the worst)

I have several LTA's and beside the Z-Bone, they are my favorties sticks.

I'm hopeful that in the near future the micro guides will be offered on the LTA's. They are awesome on the Z-Bones.
