Lighter than air. How fishing should feel.

We stripped weight to increase sensitivity. It's what gives the Helium its name.

Our flagship rod at its core doesn't just "get the job done," but makes every cast and hook set feel effortless.

When your mettle is tested and you're competing for #1, the Helium gives you all you want and need in a fishing rod: lighter than air responsiveness that gives you every advantage over the next best fisherman.

Built on T800S American Graphite from Toray.

Metallic blue on black. Bold in its simplicity, our most popular rod to-date makes the Helium a stunning example of how peak performance and beautiful design really does define the way fishing should feel.


Every rod is Kistler-Crafted™ by hand from Top Quality North Fork Composites Graphite (made in The USA), All built, wrapped, glued, and epoxied by our team in our Magnolia, Texas facility. Backed by the Trey Kistler Warranty Promise for Four Years. First year = Free replacement. Second, Third year and Fourth = Prorated replacement.

It’s where the Helium rod gets its name. It’s what it feels like fishing with the Helium.

Sleek tapered grade a cork handle, corrosion control stainless steel guides, and a fuji reel seat each cut weight and give power and sensitivity to the helium.

We hear this all the time: “Light and sensitive... With plenty of backbone.” It’s what you get with Helium.


T800S graphite from North Fork Composites.

A high-modulus blank made in America. While many rod manufacturers outsource their blanks to China, Kistler has worked hard to uplhold the integrity of American made products and craftsmanship from the blank up!

Armor-plated resin gives it a bit of extra protection and character.


The Helium, formerly known as the Helium 3 or Helium LTA is the hallmark rod for Kistler Rods.

For almost 20 years there’s been a Helium on the market.

Used by Kistler pros to win big tournaments. It’s stood the test of time, and continues to be a fisherman’s favorite.
