Bass-a-Thon 2009 Coverage Part 2 A look at some upcoming new rods (continued)


Kistler: Professional Angler Scott Martin was at the show and in his hand was a Kistler Z-Bone prototype which he has been field testing for Kistler for some time. The rod had a more matte black appearance than the rod Trey showed us previously. Which color properly represents the final product that will become available still remains to be seen but were guessing that the version Scott showed us was one of the earlier prototypes.




Scott explained to us what he liked about the rod and high up on his list was the use of micro guides which not only made the rod lighter and more sensitivity but also improved durability as well, something which was of prime importance to Scott as he also guides in Florida.

While the Z-Bone is not yet shipping anticipation continues to build for this premium rod. The Z-Bone is all about customization and anglers will be able to basically order a rod built to their own exacting specifications down to the component level.
