Uses Kistler Reels

"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."

- Richard W.


"Great Reel"

"Like most fisherman I’ve used every brand reel out there over the last 35 years. I have my favorites, and the reels that I have taken off my rods and put them right in the trash. Well I’m here to tell you that now, not only does Kistler make a great rod, they also make a great reel! I’ve been using these for a few months now, and like them as much as the first day. Light, smooth, and a solid drag. All with a great price. I am definitely planning on purchasing a few more!"

Series 2 Up Close


"I purchased two of these. The first time I took these reels out I threw an Arig on a 7'3" Kistler Helium rod with 20ib test line. This reel is so smooth it went a country mile! Fits great in the palm of your hand. Light weight and the how you tie the line to the spool is so easy a caveman could do it. For the price of this reel this is steal!"
