Kistler KC8 100% Japanese Carbon by Toray - High Modulus
KISTLER CARBON Blanks are engineered and constructed by implementing the 45-degree X-cross production process. This difficult process involves the layering of spiral carbon fibers at a 90-degree angle with additional unidirectional fibers at zero degree, then layering of a third layer of carbon at helicoidal, opposite direction, 45-degree angle.
The wrapping of 45-degree angle guarantees the blank proper elasticity and return to its original shape, irrespective of the load's angle. The reason most of our competitors do not use these processes is because it cost more labor and production time as well as increased material cost.
Comfort is king when you’re fishing all day. No hard edge when resting your finger on the reel seat. Kistler’s custom soft EVA foam smart grip makes fishing that much more enjoyable.
Smooth and accurate casting, durability, and Saltwater resistant. Our Stainless guides with conventional size coalite rings have you covered.
Ergonomic palm swell handle for easy gripping and more leverage. Grade A Cork remains a KISTLER favorite and industry standard for its light weight and dependability
Feel everything. The exposed blank Fuji reel seat is the best of the best. Excellent durability, extremely lightweight, and a proven favorite.

Born In a Texas Garage
Our company was born in a Texas garage. After Trey Kistler returned home from serving in the Gulf War, he went to work with his father building fishing rods. When his dad retired, Trey decided to blaze his own trail. He decided to make an exciting life for himself, his wife and four babies. He decided to create some solid American jobs. And he decided to try and catch as many fish as possible. So he set himself to the task of making the best bass fishing rod out there. We, and Trey, wouldn’t have it any other way. If his family name is going to be on it, it’s going to be the best. Kistler products are excellent. Period. They are the most sensitive, the most responsive, the most trustworthy. When you hold one of our rods, you know you’re holding something special.
