The LE in the Kistler Z-Bone LE Casting Rods stands for Limited Edition.  Only a limited number of the Z-Bone LE Rods will be built and individually serial numbered each year. 

Handcrafted by Kistler’s own rod experts and featuring custom-designed blanks, made in America by Gary Loomis and his new company - North Fork Composites - the Kistler Z-Bone LE Casting Rods are the lightest, strongest, and most sensitive rods that Kistler has ever built.  And since these rods are not mass-produced, Kistler can individually craft each rod to the highest standards possible.  The exclusive and rare combination of North Fork Composite’s paper-carbon scrim and extremely high-modulus Next Generation HM graphite provides the Z-Bone LE Series Rods with a strength-to-weight ratio that is unequaled in the market today, and each rod also features a Raw Carbon finish, which involves a unique sanding and polishing process that requires no gloss or paint coating, and in turn, maximizes each rod’s incredible sensitivity and lightweight balance.

New Fuji K-Style Tangle-Free Micro Guides with Alconite inserts and stainless steel frames further enhance sensitivity, while also furnishing increased casting distance and accuracy, and greatly reducing rod weight. In addition, Kistler’s Advanced Micro Guide locking wrap system (KAM Lock) is one of the industry’s best methods for locking micro guides in place - eliminating many problems found with micro guide rods today. A premium Fuji ECS single-groove, blank-exposed, reel seats also provides a lightweight base for your reel, and split grip handles with high quality cork grips ensure all day ergonomic comfort.  Taking American-made performance to the next level, the lightweight, ultra sensitive and powerful Kistler Z-Bone LE Casting Rods are also backed by a 100% Money Back Guarantee from Kistler - guaranteeing satisfaction.

Customer Reviews Back to Top

Comments: I have been fishing Kistler Rods for the last 10 years, All I have experienced was exceptional quality and customer service.  I have personally dealt with Trey, Lance, and several other Kistler Staff and I felt that they were a real class act and they went out of their way to make sure I was happy. I will continue to fish only Kistler rods.

Comments: I have owned some great rods over the years but did not know that right down the street was a little green house "home of the z bone" and they made the best rods I have used to date. I cannot believe all of the negative reviews. Take it from someone that is not bias in any way shape or form. These rods are legit! If you do not want to spend the 400 go to their website and pick up a KLX for 170$. Incredible sensitivity and I would take a KLX over any 300+ dollar rod I have ever purchased.

Comments: I now have two ZBone LE Casting Rods, one 7' Med Heavy and one 7' Medium.  For all of you who have been searching and searching for the best rod there is that will up your game, your search is over.  Kistler ZBones are that rod.  When you boil it all down it all comes down to a rods sensitivity at the end of the day.  If you can't feel the lightest of bites, how do you know how many bass you're missing? What difference does it make how much you paid for a rod or the prestige of a manufacturers name? I can guarantee you, if you pony up the money for one of these rods made with the Gary Loomis designed High Modulus Carbon fiber Scrim blank that has been rolled on a steel mandrel at over 250 lbs per square inch, removing any and all air bubbles that'll give you the most sensitive rod on the market today. My catch rate has increased by 60% I do believe.  You can feel the lightest of taps to the softest pressure bites and feel everything your lure is doing.  Man, it's like reading braille. Do yourself a favor and save your money for one of these bad boys and take your fishing to the next level.

Comments: By far the best rod on the market today.  I have the MH 3 7' and absolutely love it.  It has opened up a whole new level of fishing.  Worth every penny!

From: Michael: Leesburg, FL

Comments: the lightest rod  i have ever held in my 60+years of fishing.I own a 7ft. 3power m/h zbone. The first time i used it, i threw a bomber #7 crankbait about 40 yds. I know they cost a lot of money but are well worth the price. For you old timers out there as well as younger fisherman, save up and get one. treat yourself at least this once.
