Kistler Helium 3 Casting Rods - $249.99 to $289.99
Ten years ago Kistler Rods took the industry by storm with an entirely new concept in top level fishing rods - the Helium LTA "Lighter Than Air" rod series. The newest installment - the Helium 3 Casting Rods - borrow from the lessons learned from the previous Helium series, as well as, from the custom Z Bone series and the best selling KLX series.
The lightest, strongest and most sensitive stock fishing rods in their class, the Helium 3 Casting Rods are entirely MADE in the USA. In addition to their stunning good looks, they also features proprietary Hybrid High-Intermediate Modulus North Fork Composite graphite blanks. Equipped with faster actions and still “lighter than air,” the blanks were designed with the help of Gary Loomis, himself, and also include his Raw Carbon Design with glass scrim and proven resin system.
Premium Fuji components, including Fuji Alconite Macro-sized Guides (larger than micro, smaller than conventional guides) and Fuji Graphite Exposed blank reel seats, also ensure long last durability and top-notch performance. Totally redesigned from the blank up, the Kistler Helium 3 Casting Rods continue the Helium tradition of lightweight perfection.

Comments: Great rods comparable to other top end rods but unlike the other rods the warranty is terrible. I know Trey Kistler says he isn't in the warranty business but the competition with the same quality and price comes with life time warranties while Kistler rods don't. Also the microguides on Kistler are the best I have used but because of the warranty I will spend my dollars else were.

Comments: I recently received the Kistler Helium 3 7' medium power extra fast action rod. I was immediately impressed with the weight of the rod. The action is softer than what an extra fast rod should be but it perfect for what I intend to use it for. I bought this rod for finesse bass fishing techniques. Paired with a revo mgx, air bfs bearings and a shallow spool. This is absolutely perfect for shaky head, dropshotting, wacky rigging, finesse jigs and light t-rigs. The tip transfers into a stout backbone for solid hooksets. With an 1/8th ounce weight the rod loads great and gives the reel the added momentum to cast light baits.

Comments: Don't buy it. I got a 7M XF, and it's actually softer than a moderate fast. I compare it side by side to a 7M F Z-bone and this one is even softer. Doesn't make any sense. I am actually going to return it right away.
