Named after one of Japan's most beautiful mountain stream trout, the Amago is Tenkara USA's longest non-zoom rod at 13ft and 6inches long (410cm). Longer rods provide distinct advantages over shorter rods. Generally speaking, they recommend using the longest rod you can for the stream you are fishing.
Based on the request of several tenkara anglers this rod has a black finish. The handle was meticulously designed to provide good counterbalance to the long rod and for extra comfort on a long day of casting your delicate line and fly. The wider end of the handle serves two purposes: it provides a slightly better counter balance to the rod, and serves as a good grip for using the full length of the rod.
Length: 13ft 6in (410cm)
NOTE: Due to the telescopic nature of the rods, and the fact that Tenkara USA rounded the numbers to have a clean metric-to-English conversion, rod lengths may vary slightly from indicated.
