  1. C-Rig perfection Review by Steve
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I bought this rod specifically for Carolina rigs. I fish me c-rigs with a 1 oz tungsten weight which can be a problem for some rods. The 7’6” heavy casts the rig with ease. The feel is incredible easily differentiating between bottom and bite. It is very easy to feel the bottom and determine its composition. I have found the bites to be more distinct because of the sensitivity. Hook sets are solid due to the speed of the tip. Finally the light weight of the rod doesn’t wear you out throwing this rig all day. I highly recommend this setup (Posted on 10/18/17)

    I bought this rod for my 3/4 oz. football jigs. it is the most sensitive rod I have ever put my hands on. you can use it for big shaky heads, jigs or Carolina rig. it has the feel and the back bone to do it all. I will definitely be getting a few more of these in my boat!! (Posted on 5/9/17)

  6. Flippin' Fun Review by Caleb

    Quality

    If you want to pull fish out of heavy cover, flip docks, cast a mile with a big baits, this is the right rod for the task. I've been using this rod for the past couple of season and rarely have I lost a fish, if I did it was from bad rod positioning. The size at 7' 6", x-fast tip, and weight of this rod make this rod the perfect choice for a full day of having some flippin' fun on the water. (Posted on 5/9/17)

    As the season wound down the largemouth moved to the last deepwater weed beds in the lakes here...Lots of guys dragging jigs and big worms...educating those big girls. I rigged up baby Brush Hogs about 6" behind a pegged 1/2oz Tungsten bullet in 17-22 fow...thick milfoil and grass. The H376XFs soft tip cast that rig a mile with ease...super sensitive on even light bites with plenty backbone to bury the wide gap hook. Really cleaned up with this rod and that technique...Love this rod! (Posted on 12/18/16)

    Look no more you have it all right here! If I'm fishing a jig it's tied on this Rod. No matter if it's a football jig in 15' of water or flippin a jig in shallow cover. This Rod can handle it all. From power and backbone to pull the fish away from cover to the sensitivity to detect the slightest bites in deep water. Another winner from Kistler Rods!

    Had a tough bite going last time out...Post spawn, cold front... Working jigs and T rigs to no avail. Took my flippin bait off the He3H76XF and tied up a lite Carolina rig and PRESTO! It had enough length/tip to easily cast a 1/4 oz weight and unweighted worm and the sensitivity to feel a pickup on my bait...Very versatile and effective rod! (Posted on 6/12/16)

  11. my go to jig rod Review by Steven
    Value
    Quality
    Price

    Love the way this rod loads when pitching a 1/2-3/4oz jigs. I mainly use 30lb braid with a 20lb flourocarbon leader on it and that seems like the perfect combination for fishing everything but super thick cover. I have also used it for dragging football jigs and lighter punching applications. I'm a firm believer that the taper of this rod keeps fish pinned and puts them in my boat. One of my favorite rods of all time. (Posted on 4/2/16)

  12. Wonderful for Flip/Pitchin Review by Thomas
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I purchased this rod for pitchin and flippin baits to laydowns down on Wheeler Reservior in Alabama...The rods I'd tried before were too stiff or clumsy due to being top heavy. This is an excellent rod for flipping jigs. The length and backbone are perfect for hook sets, yet there is some "tip" to accommodate even lighter offerings. It is light in the hand and balances well. I can't wait to get down there this spring...Thank You Kistler...my arsenal is growing and I am pleasantly surprised with the quality from Argon through Helium 3... (Posted on 2/4/16)

  13. Carolina Rig Rod Review by Jeremy TBC
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    Yes, I can use the Helium 3 Heavy 7' 6" X-Fast Fishing Rod for flipping jigs, but I actually use this fishing rod mainly for Carolina Rigs (1/2 oz to 1 oz). I ordered it specifically for this technique and I haven't been disappointed yet. Paired with my favorite C-Rig soft plastics, I know for a fact that I will catch, if the situation for C-Rigging is right, five quality keepers without losing a single bass. Having come from a variety of different rod manufacturers over the years and knowing that I need a dependable Carolina Rig rod that can also be used for jigs, it is refreshing to know that Kistler Rods creates versatile rods that last, whereas a lot of my previous C-Rig/Jig rods just aren't sensitive enough, don't have enough backbone, and are shoddily designed. Not this rod, though: It is a keeper and is quickly becoming my favorite Helium rod. Must purchase, must use, must keep fishing rod. (Posted on 11/3/15)

    I had to make a review of this rod after the season I have had. This rod has helped me land many of my tournament fish on the TN River chain.

    This rod is great for many things. I mainly use it as a flippin' stick. This rod will cover most flippin' situations unless you are in need of something very specific. It can also double as a Carolina rig rod. I absolutely love setting the hook with this thing. Worth every penny! (Posted on 9/3/15)

    This has been an ideal 1/2 - 3/4 oz jig rod for me so far. It also serves very well for Carolina Rigs, Texas Rigs, and I've even used it a few times with 5"+ Flutter Spoons. (Posted on 6/10/15)

    This rod is super light and sensitive and can really feel that light bite in grass and heavy cover. It also has a lot of backbone and can pull the big ones out of the heaviest cover you can find with ease. It even doubles up very well as a frog rod and allows you to muscle those fish out of the nasty stuff! Not to mention its very appealing to the eye! (Posted on 4/27/15)

    Late this season I had at least 2 of these rods on the deck at all times rigged with a flutter spoon and a football jig on. Caught fish in water as deep as 40 foot. they are so sensitive it made it easy to detect the bites. Can't wait for the spring flipping bite to give them a whirl then. (Posted on 12/16/14)

    I am fairly new to owning the 7'6 Heavy XF Helium 3. Since I have started fishing with it, I have thrown a frog and flipped grass with it. I feel my hookup and landing ratio has increased significantly. It is sensitive enough to feel the slightest bite, and the power to get the big girls out of the thickest cover. (Posted on 9/24/14)
