Simply Awesome

"Simply AwesomeI have been fishing for many, many years and I have used every brand of reel that you can think of. The new Kistler reels are 100% legit. Very light weight, amazing drag system, super smooth and very comfortable in the hand all day. Not to mention the great look. These reels are as good or better then any other reel on the market at any price level."
