I own just about every line of Kistler rods, except the Helium 3. Don't know the price on the Helium 3's, but for the price, I really like the Magnesium line of rods.

Fantastic rods! My dad has multiple Helium 3's and they're a step above the rest if you ask me. Freakishly light and very sensitive. My dad has had minimal problems with em' and when he does, Trey Kistler himself does a great job a taking care of him.

Recently moved to over to Kistler and have been very pleased with the H3 and the KLX line of rods.
Extremely sensitive and strong while being very light and well balanced.
You will be happy!

I have one Helium 3 and it is the best rod on my boat. Will buy a few more for sure. Very light and sensitive.

Great stix. Light and sensitive. Be aware that they have a more parabolic bend than you may be expecting but that's not a bad thing to get used to.

I'd love to have a couple. They're made here in Magnolia but they are pricy but excellent rods and they do have great customer service.
