AMAGO™ 13ft6in (410cm)

$180.00
Style: Rod Only
Description

Named after one of Japan's most beautiful mountain stream trout, the AMAGO™ is our longest non-zoom rod at 13 feet and 6 inches long (410cm). Longer rods provide distinct advantages over shorter rods—generally speaking, we recommend using the longest rod you can for the stream you are fishing.

Based on the request of several tenkara anglers this rod has a black finish. The handle was meticulously designed to provide good counterbalance to the long rod and for extra comfort on a long day of casting your delicate line and fly . The wider end of the handle serves two purposes: it provides a slightly better counter balance to the rod, and serves as a good grip for using the full length of the rod.

AMAGO™ 13ft6in (410cm)

$180.00

Meet the AMAGO™

One Tough Stick

Go big.

At 13'6" (410cm), the AMAGO™ is our longest non-zoom rod, offering the range to cast further & the strength to finish the job.

True backbone

At 3.5 ounces, the AMAGO™ remains a joy to cast, but with the strength to easily pull in larger fish.

Pack away with ease

Despite its extended length, the AMAGO packs down to just 21 1/8" inches, easily tucking away alongside your gear.

Bass beware

The AMAGO™ offers the strength to throw larger flies, while still remaining sensitive enough to detect strikes from smaller fish.

Carbon Fiber Construction

At the request of our anglers, the rod sports a matte black finish with blue accents across the rod's ten segments.

High-quality cork handle

The 11" premium cork handle was constructed with a wider end to counter balance to the rod and serves as a good grip for using its full length.

What makes this rod special?

Designed as our big fish rod, the AMAGO™ is the perfect answer for streams where you could get away with a little extra length.

Testimonials

Let satisfied tenkara anglers speak for us.

Scott Schill

“I love my Amago for open water and larger fish. It has a great feel for the fight but it’s deceptively tough. I recently broke a Tenkara pole my brother in law loaned me attempting to land a large fish at Coffee Pot Rapids in Idaho. I replaced it with the Amago from Tenkara USA, which I should’ve used in the first place.”


Kevin Kelley

“Just fished a local stream by the dam and the Amago performed very well. I have used the Sato for most of this year and the Amago was able to place the flies very nicely on the water. The extra length was great. Love my tenkara USA rods!”

Haven’t had it on any water yet it is all hard yet with ice

I’m impressed with the high quality and and currently tying patterns with hen soft hackle with 12, 14 & 16 hooks

Should have it on the water in the next two weeks

Happy Customer

On a side note, how much would it cost me to buy an extra tip section with the lillen
in case it breaks

I’m thinking it be good to have a backup when I’m traveling

Awesome rod! Been using in local river and lake. The Amago might be long but has been great to get over reeds and weed beds!!! Fantastic results!!!
