"I order two rods last spring (03/20) a KLX693LMH and a KLX734MH. First off, I live in Minnesota. The rods arrived professionally packaged in a stout cardboard tube. These are my first rods without a fore grip. I was hesitant at first to try these. But, after five months of using them. The lack of a fore grip was not a problem.
The 734mh became my favorite rod this season. I used it to launch Rapala DT10 and Dt14 crankbaits. I have a Lews ss15a reel mounted on it. This rod was such a joy to cast. I could send a balsa crankbait into a good wind almost straight out. I mean without much effort, cast after cast. Just a great rod. Hooks ups were effortless.
The 693 was used mostly with a jigworm. The sensitivity and power made it a go to rod. These are my third and fourth Kistler Rods. They will not be my last."
