KISTLER KC10 100% Made in the USA Carbon

Kistler Nitranium Fishing Rod

Pure Excellence 🇺🇸

When you’re going after trophy-size, tournament winning fish, you need a rod that you can have full confidence in to land your catch. The Kistler Nitranium Rod Series exudes pure excellence in every possible way.

We’ve taken our USA KISTLER KC10 blank, made of woven 100% carbon fiber, and paired it with an inlaid rubber full-length handle, as well as bounce-back Recoil running guides to create the ultimate rod for serious anglers.

Everything about the Nitranium is geared toward strength and power, but sensitivity was at the forefront of our plans when designing this rod. You simply won’t find a rod that offers superior levels of strength that also matches the sensitivity of the Nitranium series.

The Nitranium rod series is built to last and each individual rod blank is hand-inspected by Trey Kistler and his team to ensure that it meets our standard of quality.

The Nitranium is backed by Kistler's 10-year "Bend Strong" Warranty and crafted for anglers who want to invest in a rod that will out-last the competition and deliver unparalleled leverage and casting power.

Veteran-owned and operated since 1999. 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.
