Re: Kistler rods?

Re: Kistler rods?

I decided to not purchase anymore kistler but I really liked the helium’s I had. 2 broke when they shouldn’t and each year it seems they change descriptions and model availability.

Re: Steez AGS Spinning Rods

I should have gotten another 76mml when they had the last order but kept debating over adding a 7’M. I have a lot of 76 spinning rods and was considering the 7’ for more largemouth fishing tossing senkos etc
