"I have been fishing for years. I would buy what I could afford that was on the rack at my local retailer. Usually after a good season and my abuse I put my rods through they wouldn't make it long at all. I spent hundreds of dollars buying every year. Till one day a friend lent me his Kistler rod. It only took a few minutes for me to realize that that I was holding a truly hand crafted quality rod. Now every rod I own is a Kistler. They are so easy to work with and truly stand behind their products."

"The Kistler family is at it again! Stepping up to the plate in their line up is the new reels. I have to say, worth every penny and then some. Casting distance is phenomenal, gear ratio is impeccable, and the sleek design and extra attention to detail is spot on. Do yourself a favor and go build your custom Kistler rod and pair it with one of their new reels for a combo you won’t want to put down!"

"Absolutely the best rods I've ever used! I have their Mag, KLX and Helium rods and can't say enough about them. They are the lightest rods I have and that includes my 7'11" X-heavy KLX.. It's comparable to a 7'3" from another brand. The guides are top of the line and the blanks are extremely durable. Confidence is one word that comes to mind when I have a Kistler Custom Fishing Rod in my hand!"

"I’ve had to take a hard look at the luck I’ve had fishin and need to put credit where it’s due. I met Trey and purchased my first rods from him at fishin shows in Houston starting in 1999(man I’m old). Those, as well as quite a few updates are still being used. That’s quality. That quality and feel give me the confidence to not ever have to think about or question my equipment, and I fish regularly on lake fork, and large fish are a part of a normal days fishin. From my offshore and bay rods, to the (too) many bass rods, nothing else measures up,and I’ve tried others. But the best memories are teaching a youngster to fish and watching him become a better fisherman than me😟 then seeing him with a new Kistler rod means he learned what quality is😎Thanks for all the memories Trey!"

"Kistler makes the best rods for the money, period. I have fished with them since Trey started Kistler rods and still fish with them. I have used them in both fresh and salt water and they have been great. You can't go wrong with a Kistler rod. I can say without reservation Kistler is a great company with great products."
