New Kistler Zbone!?

Postby Hennessy » Sat Feb 17, 2018 4:06 am

Just watched a YouTube Tour blog from a Flw pro that stated a new zbone is coming out, definitely interested. My '15 zbone 7'3H is my 2nd favorite jig rod behind my 894. Surely the new model will be better. Doubt there's any pics out. Wonder if anyone has inside info on models, release date or anything

I talked with Trey a few weeks ago when I requested the custom MAD... new Z-bones are coming out. No details other than a more attractive price and more crisp blanks in the high modulus nfc category. He was taking a bunch down south to test out.

when they went missing about a month ago I assumed that the situation.

The 7'3H is to me more sensitive then my NRX 894's but both have a place in my boat. Will be nice to see what the new one looks like. Full rear grip and no foregrip as the standard model would be nice but I guess I am dreaming.

I saw Alton Jones unwrap a new z-bone on Facebook live, it had red winn grip on it and didn't see anything on the front of reel seat... may have been black eva like the H3, but not certain.

Don't know if that was custom, or the new planned line-up... the tricky thing is it was 6'-9", which wasn't a previous offering in the z-bone. So don't know if it was custom for Alton, or indicator of new line-up.
