I just noticed on Tenkara Bum that Chris has made a hurried announcement of a new tenkara rod from Uzaki Nissin. The Royal Stage tenkara rods.In lengths of 3.2, 3.6 and 4.0 meters.They are a little lower cost than the Zerosum rods, otherwise quite similar, but with a longer cork grip.


Chris only had one picture of the NRS rods. Additional pictures and specs on the rod can be seen on the u-nissin web site, for those interested.


fwiw, enjoy...
