Kistler rods celebrated the 10th Anniversary of their Helium series with the brand new HELIUM3.

This latest instalment from Kistler appeals to any angler looking for the absolute lightest, strongest and most sensitive stock fishing rod available in its class. Borrowing from lessons learned in designing their custom 'Z Bone' series and their fastest selling series - the KLX, the designers at Kistler once again rocked the fishing industry with the Helium 3. Made entirely in the USA, the new Helium 3 will undoubtedly be the go-to-rod for the fisherman looking for the ultimate in performance. The Helium3 has been redesigned from the blank up. In keeping with the Helium tradition the new Helium 3 will still be the best looking and lightest rod in the rod box.
