I’m really glad I got this rod package. I have already caught many fish. It’s nice to be able to throw it into my pack and bike to my fishing location. Mine came with some type of defect in the rod handle, and customer service took care of it very quickly.
You’re not only buying a rod here, you are buying their customer service-which is fantastic! This is important because eventually something will break, no matter which brand you buy. If you are thinking about buying this rod, do it! I haven’t had this much fun in awhile.
Best customer service experience I have ever had thanks to John and TJ.
They got the parts I needed for my broken rod to me quick!
Fantastic service and availability of replacement parts. I am a big fan of companies that support their customers ability to repair! Tenkara USA made it easy to get the parts I needed and back on the water with my rod quickly.
I normally fish smaller waters in NC mountains. I fished the Hane on Rock Creek near Missoula MT. Bigger water & more open than normal for me. It performed well! I really like it’s compact package! I spoke with several people (fly shops) very few knew about tenkara!!
TenkaraUSA was fantastic with speed, ease, and price to repair my broken Sato rod. I called customer service for a little help and within a week I had my replacement part.
It's very handy. Taking some time getting used to. My pudgy fingers make it difficult at times.
So far I really like this line. Great workmanship.
Customer Service is courteous, knowledgeable and efficient! Highly recommend. Love my Tenkara rod. Thank you Tenkara USA!
Love it, casts great. I love how easy it is to hitch/un-hitch from the lilian.
Had to leave a review here after I stepped on a section of my beautiful new Ito (*crunch*). What was worse is I had an upcoming trip planned where I'd need both my rods. The customer service really did live up to the hype. TJ took great care of me and got me my rod in record time. Mind you, this is during a time where Daniel G. is officially stepping down and TUSA is basically getting acquired (I think) which is a crazy time for any company. Despite this, they were all on top of my request. Thank you!!!
When I first got my Ito, I was immediately hooked (pun intended). I already had the Dragontail Mutant but I could immediately tell the Ito would become my new go-to. The full 14+ length compared to the 13' really does cast different. When you zoom into that shorter length, it turns into a much faster-casting rod. The extra length is much appreciated in nearly every situation. When I need a 12' rod, I zoom down and choke up! Shorter than that and I defer to my Dragontail (which is very rare now). There is a good reason that Daniel believes the Ito is TUSA's best rod. If there's someone considering a first time rod, I'd recommend this one.
Grabbing the Amago to target bigger trout. Can't wait!
Nice hat! Great quality and perfect fit. Love that logo!
The lines, flyies and service are the best. The videos, from tying knots to Japanese Tenkara fishing, are very good and educational.
This is the first rod that I purchased from TUSA 10 years ago. It is still a work horse. I have other rods for special locations like the Amago.
Nice fly box. Fits in my pocket nicely. Flies work great as well.
I bought the Hane rod for my fiancé who was interested in fly fishing, but had no experience. She has used the rod hard over about 10 trips and finally broke the second section of the rod. She was pretty upset her rod broke because she loved it so much. I went online and easily found the replacement parts for an extremely fair price. If you've used Orvis or similar companies you already know that it's not that cheap and may take months to get replacement parts. The parts came in a few days and were very easy to change out. I couldn't be happier with the speed and customer service. Tenkara USA really knows what they are doing and has me sold on all their products!
