Truly...these rods are works of art!
"I recently purchased two Zbone rods, 1 standard 5H casting, and 1 custom 3LMH spinning. These rods are simply gorgeous and are truly feather light. At least the equal of my NRX rods, and when factoring in the customization, they are a fisherman’s dream come true. Nothing else compares! While the rods themselves are exquisite, the customer service is off the charts! Both Trey and Rueben have gone the extra mile by exceeding my previous experience in lofty customer service standards…especially when responding to customer enquires and reasonable adjustments to existing orders. Having a premiere rod producer coupled to such exemplary customer service is a one-two punch that blows away the competition. Be forewarned…once you go Kistler Z bone, you won’t be going back. I’m already eyeing a spinning rod in Lite Medium….just can’t get enough! As a Canadian, I am required to pay extra for international shipping AND import duties/fees…and I STILL feel the value is there. If you reside in the US,…it’s a no brainer, IMO.
If you are on the fence, just go for it. These are the king of fishing rods."

2nd to None
"I've only been w/ Kistler for 3 months from the time I wrote this review, but I honestly can say, these rods are NOTHING WORSE THAN FANTASTIC. I own a Z Bone 4 power 7'0" and a Helium 3 power 7' 3". My hook ratio on flipping (from Lake Okeechobee in the thick stuff) has increased BIG time. I used to land aprox 70% of the fish hooked deep in the mats, but in 3 months, 5 tourneys ( and many practices) my hook up ratio is at 94%, which is the difference from cashing (3x - 2 / 2nds & a 3rd) and / or winning (1x) to going home a wishing or wondering what went wrong.
There customer service is just as good as their rods, "2nd TO NONE". They now have a customer for life, and those will NOT be my only 2 rods I get from them, as my others slowly see there lifespan, they will all be replaced w/ Kistlers. I donate to the Okeechobee teen anglers every year, this year some of them will have a new Kistler rod at Christmas time.
Kistlers are an American-Made, family style owned business w/ GREAT morals and a GREAT staff, seems hard to find that anymore in this time and age. as I try to do the same in my business.
Next time I'm in Texas, I'd really like to stop by their shop and meet all of them.
Don't change a thing.

How To Choose The Right Rod
My Favorite Rod!!
"I bought the 7' ML. The rod is very light and sensitive, the casts are awesome. The rod feels very comfortable in your hand, the handle and reel seat are smooth no weird angles, I just cant put the rod down. I own a number of other high end rods and this rod is my favorite!!!"
