Kistler Helium 3 Series Spinning Rods

Kistler Rods is now celebrating the 10-Year Anniversary of their Helium LTA "Lighter Than Air" Series with the brand new Kistler Helium 3 Rods. Buiiding on the lessons learned from the previous Helium series and also featuring a host of new performance features, the Helium 3 Spinning Rods are the latest installment of the rod series that took the industry by storm.

The lightest, strongest and most sensitive, stock fishing rods in their class, the Helium 3 Spinning 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, ensure long last durability and top-notch performance. Totally redesigned from the blank up, the Kistler Helium 3 Spinning Rods will still be the best looking and lightest rods in your rod locker.

Customer Reviews

Comments: This is the real deal for a drop shot rod super sensitive light weight & the action on the rod is outstanding I fish the great lakes & when you can feel gravel in 40ft of water than set the hook on a monster smallmouth this rod handles it perfectly if your looking for a high end drop shot rod this is the one.

Comments: Just purchased the med x-tra fast action 1/8-1/2 oz rod. This rod is super light and sensitive. But action compared to other rod manufacture, can be argued as a fast action rod. Anyways I thought this rod was super light so I compared it to my dobyns champion series rod, the champion is slightly heavier but the champion is a better balanced overall rod. The guides are top-end material, craftsmanship is grade A flawless work. This is a beautiful rod! Can't wait for spring for pre-spawn. Don't have anything negative for now.
