Z Bone LEXF 5 H 7' 0" Casting Fishing Rod

Available: Out of stock  

You could receive 1000 Points for writing a review and/or rating this product.

Match this 5H with heavy line in heavy cover while pitching plastics or jigs close range when you still need that soft tip to feel the lightest of bites. If you need to chunk a heavy moving bait that requires a super sensitive feel, then grab one of these 5H powers. So many uses...need two or more in the boat.

More About The Z Bone:

Designing.  Crafting.  Testing.  These are the key principles in our continued pursuit of the perfect fishing rod. This is why Kistler Custom Rods is proud to announce the culmination of over 22 years of experience into our most advanced rod ever.  Introducing the next level in the development of the finest hand-built, American made rods on the market… the ALL NEW 2015 Z-Bone Limited Edition Xtra Fast Rod!

The All-important Blank
For the backbone of finest rods in the world, only a revolutionary graphite blank would do. In order to get the perfect blank, Trey worked closely with “Graphite Guru” Gary Loomis and his team at North Fork Composites to develop a  Next Generation High Modulus graphite blank that would become the backbone of the new Z Bone.

Using a proprietary combination of a paper thin carbon scrim, advanced resins, and the expertise of the world’s leading expert on graphite blanks,  Gary Loomis’ North Fork Composites has created one of the finest blanks ever made.

The Components
Trey has hand selected the highest quality rod components available. The 2015 Z-Bone integrates Fuji Silicon Carbide ring guides, Fuji’s most reliable reel seats, and Kistler’s innovative proprietary handles (synthetic rubber marble cork, which provides better gripping action and lasting durability).   Each Z-Bone rod also features a Hook Lock component that enables fishermen to conveniently and safely lock a lure to the rod while in storage or transit.  

The Build
Trey and his team passionately pursue perfection by hand-building  quality, ingenuity, craftsmanship, and American pride into each and every Z-Bone at their factory in Magnolia, Texas. Each rod blank undergoes rigorous stress testing and thorough inspections, and not a single finished Z-Bone leaves production and testing without Trey’s personal approval.   

Since each rod is painstakingly hand-built by Trey and his team, production of the 2015 Z-Bone rods is extremely limited, so make sure to get your hands on one of the finest fishing rods available anywhere. Experience for yourself why… “Fishing Never Felt So Good!”

  2. By far the best rod I've ever owned Review by Joe

    I have 4 of these that I use for tangling with toads on Falcon Lake. This rod has the backbone to pull fish out of heavy cover and is so sensitive you can feel the lightest of bites. I use this model for 1 oz football head jigs, Texas rigged worms and flipping heavy cover. If you are interested in the Z-Bone line give this one a try first. (Posted on 1/12/15)

  3. Sweet Rod Review by Matt

    Probably the best all around rod I have ever used. Light, sensitive and strong. Caught a 10.6 lb bass on a football jig in the stumps. Sensitive enough to feel the light bites. Plenty power to get it to the top quick! (Posted on 12/22/14)

  5. Versatile Virtuoso Review by Jay Yelas

    If I could only have one rod for all types of bass fishing (other than flipping), this would be it. I use it for all sorts of things: spinnerbaits, buzzbaits , lipless cranks, worms, top water, jerk baits....it's the Gold Standard in bass rods. (Posted on 12/16/14)

  8. Awesome Review by Randy

    That one word describes this rod. The most sensitive rod I have ever used for pitching jigs and creature baits. Just enough tip to get the bait exactly where it needs to be a enough power to get them out. Fishing never felt so good! (Posted on 8/20/14)

  9. Great rod for night fishing big black bass! Review by Chad

    In the summer time I night fish for bass and I've tried many heavy rated rods but nothing compares to the sensitivity, strength and weight of this rod. Strong enough to get them out of the stumps and light enough to fish all night. (Posted on 3/20/14)
