How To Choose The Right Rod

"Exactly What I was looking for!"

"I finally got a chance to fish my FNR69MH that I purchased earlier this month. All I can say is wow! I bought this rod for fishing spinner baits in the cypress tree lakes of Northwest Louisiana and it fit the bill perfectly. It has the perfect amount of tip to sling spinnerbaits in close quarters around the trees but also a good backbone to haul them out. Super impressed with this rod and so glad I added it to my arsenal."

"Great 'Reaction Bait' Rod"

"My FNR70MH is working great with bigger topwater baits. It has a really good backbone for long casts with bigger baits and a good soft tip to play out those bigger fish. The Feel n Reel series rods are light and very durable!"

- Mark C.


"I purchased a 7' 3" Feel N Reel to replace a broken Duckett 7' medium heavy. I started using the Kistler to throw square bills and spinners and top water. This is one of the most accurate casting rod I own. It's right on up there with a Lews 6' 8" that I use for accuracy around docks or along the bank. this rod is equal to or better than my pro series lews rod. The APP (all purpose power) is better made and I have no issues with this rod. I highly recommend this rod."

- Pete M.

"Excellent Rod for any application"

"All I can say is wow!! I've spent years looking for the right rod that can handle anything. Trey Kistler and the team at Kistler Rods have knocked this one out of the park!! I use this rod for everything from cranking to frogs to TX rigged senkos. I love it so much I have 4 on the deck at all tines. THANK-YOU KISTLER RODS!!!"

- Todd F.

"Fantastic Deep Cranking Rod"

"I was actually a little hesitate picking this up in a 7'3" as I fish from a kayak.I couldn't be more happy with it.This gives me enough for those long casts need to get the bait out and down to where the fish are in the summer. I pair mine up with 14 pound Fluro when I am throwing something big to go deep."
