"I ordered the new Graphite rod heavy 5 power. When it arrived my first impression was how light it was. After several trips to the lake and really giving it a true test, I can honestly say you will not be disappointed. The rod is super light, extremely sensitive, and powerful. The rod boasts a light, sensitive tip which allows for accurate casts yet it has a solid backbone that allows you to pull fish from heavy cover without having that broomstick feel. This one has definitely found a permanent place on my boat deck."
FUJI REEL SEAT
The most durable, lightweight, and comfortable carbon reel seat available. Get the perfect grip on every cast and maintain control of your rod.
KISTLER EVA SMART GRIP
Kistler Rods has given the Graphite rod a whole new level of comfort by placing EVA foam where your reel seat meets the graphite rod. This allows a finger to rest and feel your rod without the discomfort of a hard edge.
EVA FOAM SPLIT GRIP
A sleek black split grip handle made from EVA foam. Just enough softness without getting slippery or uncomfortable. The black EVA foam handles on the Graphite rod hide stains and dirt, while giving your rod a clean black and graphite finish.
Every Graphite Rod comes with Kigan semi-conventional rings, stainless steel, with tangle free frames. The Graphite is naturally rust and oxidization resistant, while giving you slick, no tangle performance with every cast.
KISTLER CARBON KC6 Blank
The new 2021 Kistler Carbon KC6 Blank - Standard Modulus, gives the Graphite Rod enough backbone to haul in your next monster bass. Every Graphite blank gets stress tested at Kistler HQ in Magnolia, TX, before getting fully built, to ensure your rod can hold up to any fish.
KISTLER BUILT BY HAND IN TEXAS

VERY LIGHT WEIGHT
"I specifically bought this 7’0 medium Graphite 2 to use squarebills and jerkbaits. Let me tell you, I put this rod through the tests and it passed. First, I would like to say this Graphite 2 looks amazing. Reel seat, guides, handle are all top notch, which you get from Kistler. Second, this rod is like casting a feather. Most light weight rod I have ever held. Third, this graphite lets you set the hook with out pulling the trebles out of the fishes mouth. This rod for the money, is hands down the best rod on the market!"
A HIGH END ROD THAT WON'T BREAK THE BANK
★ ★ ★ ★ ★5/5
"I fished this rod for the first time a little over a week ago. I was throwing a big Texas rigged worm and this rod performed flawlessly. The rod has incredible sensitivity, very light weight and plenty of power. 7' LMH Graphite series rod performs better then most rods that are at a way higher price point. Kistler has hit a home run with this line of rods."
STRONG & DURABLE
CONFIDENCE IN EVERY HOOKSET AND BOAT FLIP.

"I LOVE Kistler’s new “Graphite” series rod. Bought a 3LMH 7’ for throwing Senkos and creatures. This rod is incredibly sensitive through the handle, light, balanced (paired with a mid-range Lew’s baitcaster), and equally strong. I pulled a few out of the weeds with no issues. I love fishing Texas rigged baits with a pegged 1/16 oz bullet, and I feel the bite like a wacky set-up with this rod. I’m impressed, and didn’t have to shell out hundreds of dollars the other pro rod manufacturers charge. Great kayak rod! A winner all around Kistler!!! Thanks."

"I have the Graphite 7’ MH (GR704MH) and have used it for many different techniques with success. I particularly like it for a 1/4 ounce shakey head with a seven inch finesse worm and or a 3/8 ounce chatterbait. Along with the great performance of the rod it looks AWESOME with the graphite colored label and thread."

“So far I'm loving my new 7' GFR. I've tried it out flipping, pitching, and dragging a worm. The sensitivity is awesome. The fast action pulled fish from cover quickly. Very comfortable in my hand and light weight like all Kistler rods.”
