“I depend on my Kissel Krafts Custom Rods!  For fishing with plastics or jigs, sensitivity is critical to putting fish in the boat.  I highly recommend the Commander Series, their high modular blank. Plus, in addition to building quality rods, Kissel Krafts stands behind their product.  Delighting customers is their goal.”
