On the banks of the North Fork River, behind Gary's lodge is a new blank factory in Woodland, WA properly named North Fork Composites Inc., Trey Kistler and Gary Loomis (not G.Loomis) worked together again to find an answer to the need for high performance fishing rods at a value unheard of in the industry today. After pots of coffee and cokes, Trey and Gary worked together to design a rod blank that matches unparalleled sensitivity, lightness and strength. Out of Gary's North Fork Composites production comes a blank that has Kistler's signature 'raw carbon' look that provides the sensitivity you've come to equate with the Kistler name. And because it is made here in America you know it's going to be a dependable rod for years.

With the foundation of an American Made Hybrid 42.7 Million Modulus blank, adding top quality components and Kistler innovations make the KLX a rod that has to be experienced to be believed. And of course it is built right here in Magnolia TX by Kistler's certified rod technicians.

With the foundation of Gary's Next Generation IM Intermediate Modulus blank, adding top quality components and Kistler innovations make the KLX a rod that has to be experienced to be believed. And of course it is built right here in the good ol' USA by Kistler's certified rod technicians.

Pride in building the very best for our customers. It's the foundation of the Kistler values. So you can say - ..'Fishing NEVER Felt SO Good!'

  1. Great jig Rod Review by luke

    Just got this rod a little while ago and on my first trip out I stuck a 6 and 5 other fish that were in the 3-5lb range. Great job Kistler this rod is fantastic and super sensitive!! (Posted on 2/14/18)

  2. Great frog Rod Review by Timothy

    This is such a great frog rod. It's a light weight rod but strong as an ox. I can cast a frog a mile with this rod. It has a great sensitive tip for working the frog and a great backbone for pulling the fish out of the grass. (Posted on 8/11/17)

  3. Lightweight and sensitive Review by Eric B.

    I'm not sure what goes into building these rods, but I can tell you that I'm able to continue my love for fishing after my arthritis diagnosis because of these rods. I'm able to feel the lightest of bites while flipping or pitching and I have confidence that my hook will penetrate the fish's jaw with minimal hook set. Kistler Rods has a lifelong customer in me (Posted on 5/10/17)

  4. Versatile Rod Review by Nickalas

    This is one of the best and most versatile rods they've come out with. Action can haul several pounds of fish. The tip can handle multiple actions. and the strength of this rod can take a beating for many years. Trust me, this one is worth it!! Buying several more for next year..... (Posted on 10/10/16)

  5. Don't Let Mod-Fast Fool You Review by Brandon R

    This rod is listed as having a Moderate-Fast action, but powered behind a HEAVY rod! It takes a lot for this rod to bend! PERFECT frog rod! (Posted on 1/28/16)

  6. AWESOME Review by Randy

  7. Best Casting Rod in the boat Review by CP

    This is the work horse of the fleet. This rod is used mostly for football head jigs, and hard heads. It is extremely sensitive to bites from long distance on the bottom. I flat out love this rod. When the opportunity arises I will fire a frog with it on braided line and try to coax and beast out form under the salad with no worries about getting it out of there when I hook one.

  8. Best Frog Rod Ever Review by Justin

    I've had this rod for 2 seasons now and I'm still blown away every time I use it. It does things a regular frog rod just doesn't do. The tip is just enough so that I can skip my frog into the nastiest stuff and yet it has the backbone to get the fish out when I need it. I just switched it over for flipping a jig and I'm sure it will be excellent for that application as well. (Posted on 12/16/14)
