IWANA™ 12ft (360cm)
The Iwana is our classic all-around tenkara rod and at a great value. The progressive taper, ultra-light weight, and tip action provides for great battles, even with smaller fish. Quality and strength are by no means compromised, and landing large fish is not unheard of. The original choice of many early tenkara adopters outside of Japan, the Iwana is still a great choice to help you fall in love with tenkara.
It packs to a small compact size of 20 1/2 inches, which makes it easy to fit in a day pack
These rods have a beautiful "glossy carbon" finish, where you can see the high-quality carbon fiber material through a nice glossy finish.

Not ready to review right now due to Iwana being a Christmas gift to wife , I know it will be awesome since we hike the trails of Tennessee. Cannot wait to explore all options this will change our fishing !
The new Iwana is exactly what I wanted. I have an Amago, but it's just too large for some of the smaller streams I fish here in SW Washington/NW Oregon. I've not yet fished with it, but I know I'm going to be as happy with it as I am with the bigger fella.
Tenkara USA for the win!
It’s a Christmas gift, I’ll let you know:)
Another arrow for the quiver. Love this size for my 'everyday carry'.
The 1st trip out, i fell and broke my Iwana, I called and spoke to TJ, he quickly mailed out the sections i thought i needed, well, it turned out to be 2 more sections i needed!, all this he sent me for free,,,,,,what customer service, I also bought a Sato, for my wife, we absolutely love the Tenkara's, Daniel, since then, i bought all the flies from you and the leveling line, and line keepers!, customer for life here!.
