kistlers

Will Bill,

I now own 3 kistler rods. For the money they are a decent value in a handmade rod. I have a custom made 2 pc spinning 6'6 for tossing senkos. It is great.

I also have a 5'6 matched with a scorpion for accurate casting. this was made with a cut down senko special blank. It is easily my most used rod.

The link from Woody is how I found out about them and here is a link that has a review of a couple of Kistlers.

Wandy,

Actually it is the "Tidemaster"...

7'6" Medium Heavy Spinning....[which seems more like a 'heavy'].

I bought it for light/medium saltwater applications and also for HEAVY freshwater uses, including yanking "Froggie" and Bass from slop [a/k/a "gack"], like I was doing with it at Earthy's ESBA Memorial on Forge this past summer. It's got plenty of backbone for that task, and I fished "froggie" all day then there.
I also use it for Stripers and Blues in the brine....
