Kistler and Loomis Unite on new KLX
The handcrafted KLX (an acronym the "Kistler-Loomis Xperience") build is anchored by a T800 Hybrid High-Modulus blank cooked up by Gary Loomis, exclusively for the KLX project. Loomis' goal was a light and nimble handling blank; yet one which retains the sensitivity that set Loomis blanks apart from the crowded field.
While other manufacturers make over-the-top claims of "super-sensitivity"—the KLX has an uncanny ability to transmit feel, as if it's an extension of your fingertips. KLX Project Director Trey Kistler, “The sensitivity of the KLX is achieved by combining Gary’s revolutionary blank, the most advanced components and Kistler’s technique-specific build configurations. We have a rod that brings much of the experience of our $500+ custom Z-Bones to a price that anyone can afford, and it’s made in America. We felt we owed that to our loyal customers. It's difficult to put into words just how much sensitivity Gary baked into this blank, you just have to experience it"
