It’s probably my fault and I tossed it out. But my package didn’t come with the reel. So I don’t know to give a one star or five.
This is a Tenkara package. It doesn't have a reel.
The outfit performed great on a couple of 16" rainbows here in Virginia. The flexibility of the rod allowed accurate casts and helped fight the fish without breaking the 5X tippet. I now have two of these rods.
The package seems very complete - everything I'll need to go fishing - and I'm impressed with the design and quality of everything. I'll be taking the outfit fishing for 15- to 20-inch rainbow trout next week on a 20- to 30-foot wide private stream here in Virginia. The rod should be just right for that.
Bought one complete kit for my son's Christmas gift upon opening the box i immediately ordered a second for my own Christmas gift. Everything you'll need to get your feet wet in Tenkara. I was impressed with the quality.
Rod is great but the furled line that comes with kit is very hard to manage with it. I have tried Kevlar furled line and it so crazy the difference it makes!!!! Got some level line to try next. Everything looks very well made!!!
