Just in case you want to learn more about the Z bone rods...
After two years of research and development, the brand new Kistler Z bone rods are finally available to the public in a custom rod aspect. Each Z bone will be built and tested from a blank that was specially designed by the legendary Gary Loomis and constructed by his North Fork Composites team in their new state-of-the-art blank factory in Woodland, Washington. Because of the extreme degree of testing by Gary and his team as well as the Kistler standard of testing, you will be able to feel more confident while fishing our great American Z bone blanks.
All Kistler Z bone blanks are finished in a beautiful "Raw Carbon." Our one of a kind "Raw Carbon" finished look is a sanding and polishing process that involves no added color, gloss or matte coating at all, just the pure beauty of graphite. This approach ensures your rod is as light, responsive, and sensitive as possible. While a coating can make for an attractive fishing rod, the weight of any applied finish dampens the blank at its most critical section, the tip.. By leaving our blanks naturally finished, we can deliver to you not just the lightest rod possible, but also one with an incredibly sensitive tip that will also equate to tons of detected bites.
Z bone LE stands for "Limited Edition". Given the exclusive and rare combination of paper carbon scrim and extremely high-modulus 40 ton graphite, these rods will be produced in limited quantities. Have you ever dreamed about that "perfect" blank? Well, wake up because thanks to our ( - - blocked - - ) with the legendary Gary Loomis, we are now able to deliver that to you.
