Freshwater Casting Rod (Kistler Z-Bone): Our focus this year on TackleTour has been about all purpose rods.
Naturally, everyone’s definition of "all purpose" is different and so is everyone’s preference in rod specifications. Everything from handle length to number of guides to type of guides to the color of the wraps are variables influencing your buying decision. Like the sound of a certain stick we ’ve reviewed but wish you could tweak a variable?
Kistler Custom Rods has a solution for you.
Thanks to a partnership with North Fork Composites, Kistler is back on the rise with their "build-your-own" ZBone line of rods and in the coming months they’ll have stock, built rod options as well. For now, customers choose their blank, rod length, handle length, handle material and configuration, reel seat, guides, thread wrap, etc. and have it delivered to their door in approximately 4 weeks. The most basic configuration runs about $250 and prices go up from there. Looking for the perfect gift for that fisherman on your list? How about a ZBone customized with a personal message on the blank so they can remember your thoughtfulness on every cast?
