        Trey Kistler's Dream has come true after many years of field testing and proving his reels to be ready for combat. Introducing the all new Kistler Series 1 Reels! The Way Fishing Should Feel, according to Trey.

  • Multiple Carbon Disk Drag Washer System for improved drag power and enhanced heat-resistance durability. 19 pounds of drag power. Unique feature: Subtle audible click when the fish is pulling drag, much like a spinning reel!
  • Convenient Line Memory Number Dial System.
  • Anodized Aluminum Star Drag and Spool Tension Knob both with audible click for fine tune adjustments.
  • Deep Set Anodized Aluminum Spool for maximum line capacity.
  • Strong 1-piece aluminum frame with extremely durably high gloss paint treatment.
  • External Control Centrifugal Brake System designed for even ultra light lures. Never requires internal adjusting!
  • Super Strong, Oversized 4 inch, Multi-Layered Carbon Cranking Arm with Rubber Finger Contoured Grips.
  • Rubber Thumb Pad for efficient and accurate casting.
  • 10 of the Highest Quality Stainless Steel Ball Bearings for more than 1 million smooth casts and retrieves. 
  • Line Guide made from hardened Zirconia for the smoothest cast and retrieve.
  • Convenient Line Tie Port within the spool to help with spooling line easily and prevents braided line from spinning around the spool.
  • Hard Brass Pinion Gear.
  • Factory Tuned, Tested and Pre-Oiled. Go fishing and feel the fish bite!
  • Included: Box, Manual, Oil, Parts Schematic, Reel Protector Bag and Set up tips from the Pros.

"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!!"
