Two new Kistler Rods enter market
By Tony Stoltz
Second preview from the 2005 ICAST/Las Vegas show features two new rods from Kistler Rods you'll want to check out. Here is a ton of information direct from Trey Kistler and crew at Kistler Rods.
Introducing the lightest fishing rod on the planet. Even lighter than the Helium LTA rods. Yes, imagine yourself casting, flipping, pitching and chunking and winding all day long without a hint of fatigue. That dream has become a reality with the new KISTLER HELIUM 2 LTX.
After 3 years of great success with the original Helium LTA rods, we have decided to introduce an even more innovative fishing rod. Weighing in at under 3 ounces, yet sacrificing nothing in strength and durability, this amazing creation will most definitely feel like no other rod has ever felt.
With the combining of graphite "Ampli-fibers" underneath the fingers down to the butt cap, the fish will not have a chance to spit the lure out before you set the hook. More power and sensitivity than ever imagined is now available with the placement of these proprietary "Ampli-fibers".
With the invention of our new state of the art sure-grip split handle design, you will experience more confidence and stability while setting the hook on big fish. The light weight material in our new handle will allow for even more sensitivity and feel, allowing you to feel bites like never before.
And as always, included on every rod we make, is the Kistler "hook hanger". Known to those who already have a Kistler Rod as the smartest idea for a hook keeper ever invented. Don't forget to take advantage of our new "Smart Touch" reel seats. For 2006, we have coated them with a "texture coat" in order for you to gain even more grip on the rod all year long. Remember to take advantage of our popular, common sense "no fore grip" design where we have removed the cork to increase vibrations to the index finger.
If that wasn't enough, we have engineered an even better guide for the new HELIUM 2 LTX rod line. Silky smooth, copper zirconia ring inserts keep any line gliding throughout the cast and retrieve without any friction or noise. Our deep pressed guide frame will ensure the durability of the ring insert and offer you long lasting, hassle free troubles trip after trip to the lake. Even the rod tips are enhanced with our flanged ring inserts to eliminate any accidental knockouts.
Finally, the HELIUM 2 LTX is backed up with a World Class "No Hassle" Limited Lifetime Warranty. Come experience the new KISTLER HELIUM 2 LTX series of rods fishing has never felt so good!
Searching for a high end rod that is designed for the angler who is serious about originality, then pick up one of our innovative "Technique Specific" MAGNESIUM TS rods. Super light and genuinely designed for the guy who wants more performance in a rod without the big price tag.
Here is a list of just some of the features of the NEW MAGNESIUM TS Series:
With the fusion of our patented Helium and Magnesium graphite fibers, the angler will certainly detect every single bump, tick or gulp that takes place beneath the water surface. The added materials offer the angler more power, feel and action throughout the rod.
One very nice feature is the "split-grip" handle design. By removing middle section of the cork handle, you will notice the added vibrations through the blank and lightened weight of the rod itself. The lighter the rod is, the more you feel the fish.
Don't forget to take advantage of our new "Smart Touch" reel seats. We have coated them with a texture in order for you to gain even more grip on the rod through all weather conditions. Remember to take advantage of our no fore grip design where we have removed the cork to increase vibrations. Use what God gave you to detect those subtle strikes by placing your index finger right on graphite itself.
As always, included on every rod we make, is the Kistler "hook hanger"; known to those who already have a Kistler Rod as the smartest idea for a hook keeper ever invented.
Standard equipment on all of the MAGNSIUM TS rods are stainless steel guide frames with non-cut, ceramic ring inserts. Even the rod tip-top is enhanced with our exclusive flanged ring insert which eliminates any accidental knockouts.
The MAGNESIUM TS is backed up with a World Class "No Hassle" Limited Lifetime Warranty.
These two new entires to the rod market should be shipping in late 2005 or early 2006.
