Based on not yet enough experience, I can offer a little advise that has served me well. A 3# jumping, head shaking, and diving LM bass to hand is my personal best to date; we won't discuss the learning curve in public.

Your 5-7X tippet is your 'safety' in the conquest of larger fish. Let the full length of the supple Tenkara rod tire the fish.

Finesse is the watch word.......enjoy
