    Uses Kistler Reels



    "I have used several high end, expensive reels over the years. The Kistler Series One reels are by far the smoothest reels I have ever used. These reels are light weight, easy to grip, smooth and work flawlessly. I have purchased several Series ones over the last few months to replace some well know, high end reels. These are the only reels I will use from here on!!"

    Features Overview


    "I've been using Series 1 reels for over 4 months now and I must say they have met and greatly exceeded my expectations! Smooth, light, and very durable. I've used many different manufacture's reels over the years and the Series 1's external centrifugal brake system is the best I've seen so far. Even in very windy conditions using light baits, I've been able to dial in perfectly to avoid backlashes. The line size dial system on the handle is awesome for identifying line size when multiple rods are stacked in the rod box. Very impressed with the overall experience so far!"

    - Jamie L., Gonzales, LA


    "Combined with the Z-Bone rod, this Series 1 reel is “the bomb”! This reel is light so I can fish with it all day without aggravating my “tennis elbow”. Smooth casts and retrieves are a must, and this reel delivers both. The audible drag and cast adjustments are a plus along with an awesome finish. Every angler should own one."

    - Jim P., Spring, TX


    The perfect pairing for your Kistler Rod, the all new Series 1 Kistler Reel. Shiny black aluminum weighing in at only 6.3 oz! The Kistler Series 1 Reel is now available!


    "Wow, Smooth and Tough!"

    "I've owned and used countless high dollar name brand reels and some cheap no name brand reels but this new Kistler Series 1 reel will be standing when the rest fall! Some of the $400-500 dollar reels aren't as smooth or cast as far as this reel does! Whether it's a 1/8 oz. bait or a 1 oz. bait this reel can handle the pressure! The reels are easy to setup, fast and simple to take apart to oil when needed plus they will take care of business when the pressure is on!"

    Kistler Series 1 UP Close

    "Blown Away!"

    "I am highly impressed with these new Kistler reels. I picked up a Series 1 when they first came out and been testing it out for a while now. I am simply blown away by the performance of this reel. Cast with ease and I mean bomb a cast without wearing out your arm! Plus the light weight paired with any Kistler Rod, equals more sensitivity. I will be getting more to add to my arsenal."
