The Kistler Hunt Series BFS Fishing Rods: Ultimate Bait Finesse Experience

Hey there, fellow anglers! It’s Aaron Hunt here, and today I’m thrilled to share with you a dream come true – the Kistler Hunt Series BFS Fishing Rods. The Hunt name is not a coincidence, as these rods were not only named after me but were also designed by yours truly to be the first Kistler BFS rods. In this blog post, I’ll dive deep into what makes these rods special, why they’re a game-changer for bait finesse fishing, and where you can get your hands on them.

The Birth of the Kistler Hunt Series BFS Fishing Rods

If you’ve been following my fishing journey, you know that the anticipation for these rods has been real. Finally, they’re here, and I couldn’t be more excited. When Trey Kistler, the mastermind behind Kistler Rods, first approached me, it was about creating a line of Bait Finesse Rods, and included a signature rod for me. But what happened next took me by surprise – he suggested putting my name on the entire line, giving birth to the Hunt BFS Series.

Exploring the Lineup

Now, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty details. The Hunt BFS Series offers four different sizes to cater to various bait finesse fishing scenarios:

  • 4X 6′: Perfect for those tight trout streams or creeks where precision is key.
  • 4X 6’6″: Ideal for small presentations and fighting bigger fish while maintaining finesse.
  • 3X 6’8″: My everyday go-to rod, versatile and balanced.
  • 3X 7′: For those extra few inches of reach and leverage without sacrificing weight.

Lightweight Marvels

One of the standout features of these rods is their incredibly lightweight design. They range from just 74 grams for the 4X 6′ to 88 grams for the 3X 7′. To put that in perspective, these rods offer exceptional sensitivity without compromising on strength.

Fine-Tuning for Perfection

During the development phase, we made a few key adjustments based on the prototyping process. The final rods now feature Fuji micro guides for improved performance and durability. We also fine-tuned the Fuji reel seat and handle lengths to ensure a balanced and comfortable fishing experience.

Defying Traditional Action Classifications

When it comes to action, the Hunt BFS Series defies traditional classifications. These rods offer a unique, progressive bend that combines the sensitivity of carbon with the fish-controlling properties of glass. You’ll find that they’re incredibly versatile, excelling in both bottom contact finesse techniques and moving bait applications. But they are softer than many rods on the market.

This action allows you to cast lighter weights while still having the backbone to fight larger fish.

The Parabolic Action Advantage

One of the critical aspects we focused on was the parabolic action of these rods. When you’re fishing with ultra-light lines, having a rod that can keep fish pinned and provide optimal leverage is essential. The Hunt BFS Series offers just that, ensuring you have maximum control during the fight.

The longer lengths than many rods offer in similar weights also gives you two distinct advantages.

  1. They give you more leverage to fight the fish, especially when you hook into a big one!
  2. That extra length adds to the shock-absorbing ability of the rod to help you manage runs, jumps, and just hard fighting fish.

Finding the Right Rating

You might be wondering about the tonnage and rating of these blanks. While we don’t disclose the exact manufacturing process, I can tell you that they are based on Kistler’s renowned KC8 Toray carbon blanks. These high-modulus blanks from Japan offer excellent sensitivity and power. The 4X rods are rated from 0.75g to 6 grams, and the 3X rods are rated from 1.5 grams to 10 grams.
