    In dealing with more than a few broken rods, I find that "durability" is pretty closely proportional to the amount of care the rods are given. I you never take a once ounce rod in a kayak, it is less...

    The 12' 360cm indicates the length of the rod (approximately). The 7:3 is a rough notation for the rod's action. It means 70% of the rod is relatively stiff and 30% relatively soft (basically, it is...

    Sore subject. Gordieb's order came late in the day - on a day when I had already placed an order with my supplier. I sent a second order that day - which I never do. Second order got lost. Routine...

    Interesting approach to make one very long model that is to be cut to the desired length by the user. Looks like any length from 4m to 7m (including 1m of built in tippet). I ordered one for...

    I have never fished with that rod so I can't give you an informed suggestion other than to say that a furled leader will be easier for you and your 11yr old to cast. I would suggest trying a level...

    dwalker's answer and translation were pretty good. The finish is hand painted to look like bamboo.

    Would that it were true. I believe the new Daiwa NEO rod, not the RT, SC or Minomushi (which is actually a 5th model of tenkara rod) is intended to be the replacement for the Enshou rods. That's the...

    I have a Tenkara RT 270, which I ordered thinking it would be a good small stream rod. As far as I know, it is the only Japanese true tenkara rod made in that length. Big disappointment. It is...

    Every rod is a compromise. With a 9' rod you will find spots where you'll wish it was longer. Looking at some of your photos on the other thread, I think there'll be places you'll think even the 9'...

    First, your rod tip should always be up, 45% angle at minimum, for two reasons: 1) it helps to keep the line off the water, minimizing drag, and 2) the rod is able to bend when you get a fish, giving...

    With good casting form, you can use the lightest lines you can find. The size 3 lines I carry will work, as will TUSA's 2.5. The lighter the line, the more you need proper form to cast it, though....

    Nice report.

    What you are doing is obviously working so I don't want to suggest many adjustments, but I would urge not "letting the line back down." Keeping your rod tip up all the time (from the...

    Nissin makes a 6.3m fixed line carp rod rated for 12 lb test tippet (compared to Daiwa's Salmon Hunter, which is 8.3m and 16 lb test tippet). Might not be sufficient for king salmon, but it might do...

    Of the four rods you mentioned for carp, the Daiwa Kiyose 53M is the most capable. After that, perhaps the Nissin 450ZX stiff and Daiwa Kiyose 43M, and then the Nissin 45ZX medum. I would suggest a...
