Only The Best. 2021 Z BONE

You get a Z Bone when only the best will do, when peak performance is your goal, and when you just want to enjoy the finer things in life.

The absurd weight (or lack thereof) of the Z Bone lets you know right away that you're holding something special. Average only 3.5 ounces!

Like a fine wine, custom rifle or a premier set of clubs, you get what you pay for with the Z Bone. 

Built on KISTLER KC9 Extremely High Modulus Blanks - 100% Japanese Carbon by Toray.

A dental surgeon requires a fine instrument to do his delicate work, the Z bone blank is a fine instrument, meant for the most delicate of bites. A surgeon does not use his fine instrument to chisel, hammer or pull teeth, he uses a different tool for that.

The blank has been individually hand inspected to ensure perfection, and each guide, cork, and wrap only serves to make the Z Bone lighter, smoother and stronger.

You might just like great things. You might just love to have every competitive advantage possible on the water.

Or you might just need to see for yourself what it's like to have only the best: The Kistler Z Bone.

Every rod is Kistler-Crafted™ by hand from Top Quality Carbon Fiber, All built, wrapped, glued, and finished by our team in our Magnolia, Texas facility. Backed by the Trey Kistler Warranty Promise for Five Years. First year = Free replacement. Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth year = Prorated replacement.
