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.

The Iwana seems like a great value and a manageable size for someone new to Tenkara. Great for small and medium fish but surely can handle larger fish as well.
This my first time using a Tenkara rod. The ease of set up and getting familiar with the rod and how to cast came very naturally. With all the information provided by Tenkara USA made it even easier. Looking forward to catching more fish using the Tenkara approach. Thanks for the great service as well.
Perfect for a beginner like me. As a newbie in this game, I didn’t know where can I catch trout. I have tried from small creek to decent wide mountain stream. The versatility of this rod allows me to try on various situations. Plus sensitivity of the rod is beyond my expectations, yet has a strength to fight good size trout in fast current.
So far the rod is great, I’ve caught a few bass on it with ease. Super simple and straight forward to use. Highly recommend this to anyone that may be on the fence about ordering it.
Love this rod. Well balanced and capable of handling bigger fish.
