"Argon Rod is great"

"The 4mh 7ft rod is light weight and easy to fish. I have one used it one time since I just received it and I crappie fish most of the time. The rod is sensitive and has a strong backbone. I look forward to fishing it more this summer and fall. I will be purchasing more rods and try the reels in the future. Being a retired Navy Sailor your support is much appreciated. Thank you for the good product."

"GREAT!"

"The series 2 reel and argon 5 power 7’3” make a great top water combo. I love the soft tips of the two rods I have. I will be purchasing other Kistler Rod and reel combos. Thank you so much for the opportunity to purchase quality Texas made Rod and reel’s at a decent price."

- John C., Grand Praire, TX

"Highly Recommend!"

"The Argon blanks are terrific. I got the ML 7 foot. Perfect spinnerbait rod. Love the cork handle and reel seat. I also purchased another reel and feel rod. It is the best overall " do everything" casting rod on the market. Bar none."

LOVE EVERY CAST
⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

"I purchased a total of 3 Argon series Rods, 2 bait casting and 1 Spin cast. At the time of purchase it was a little too cold to use them. But now that Spring is here and I've had a month to really use them.....Wow! I am more of a flipper and pitcher type fisherman and use them for jigs and soft plastics and the feel is incredible. The action of the rods allows me to get a good hookset and take full control of the fish. These rods are so light and perfectly balanced to where I can use them all day with no fatigue. I'm looking forward to adding a few more to go with my collection of great Kistler Rods."

How To Choose The Right Rod

"Kistler Rods are the best rods I have ever owned"

"I just got my 6'9" Argon MH and took it to Lake Powell, I caught a ton of smallmouth bass and am very pleased how the rod performed. I had great hook sets and landed all fish that bit except two (but I am sure it was the hooks on the lure I was using is the reason I lost them.) I brought 2 other rods on the trip but never even used them. I caught all my fish on this rod. I love the color and sleekness. I could feel every bite because the rod is so sensitive. I do own one other Kistler Rod and I love them both.

Thank you for making the greatest rod I have ever owned."
