Kistler’s new KLX Feel N Reel casting series combines the attributes of both fiberglass and graphite to deliver what the US company believes is the ultimate rod for moving baits.
Using technology developed with North Fork Composites, Kistler has fused S2 hybrid blank material with T800 high-modulus graphite to blend the lightness of graphite with the softer power of fibreglass.
The result is a range with a moderate action that compensates for the industry’s move towards surgically-sharpened hooks, zero-stretch lines and faster reels, with the aim of minimising the percentage of hook pulls.
The made-in-America rods are enhanced with premium components that include Kigan no-tangle guides, Fuji reel seats and high-grade cork grips.
The series is made up by 13 casting rods – four medium modified, five medium heavy modified and four heavy modified. There are also two spinning models – a medium modified and a medium heavy modified.
“This is an industry-first blank design that gives anglers the benefits of both graphite and fibreglass” says Kistler.
