HANE™ 10ft10in (330cm)
The Hane™ is a super compact all-around tenkara rod that will quickly become your favorite adventure rod. Measuring just under 15 inches when collapsed, but extending to 10ft 10in (330cm), the Hane fits nicely inside a small day pack, making this a superb tenkara rod for backpacking, bikefishing and other adventures.
Whether you are targeting trout in a mountain stream, or bass in an urban pond, the Hane will work well. It's a rod that can tag along in a variety of conditions without compromising durability. The Hane is also a popular rod for kids.
We decided to make this rod white, a unique color in our lineup. The idea was to have a rod that will blend in well with open skies above. A black rod does a good job blending in with canopy, but its movement tends to stand out when fishing ponds and open meadow streams. The thin and less visible tip sections of the rod are matte black.

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!!
I like my Hane rod a lot. It broke the second time I used. The company sent me the replacement part at no charge right away. I'm looking forward to get back out on the water soon.
I love the simplicity of this tenkara rod. It packs down to nothing for back packing trips and now lives in my car for trips after work.
I can be out of the car and casting in minutes.
I picked up the Hane in Wyoming and headed straight up to the headwaters of the green river. Hooked a 20 inch brown trout but I had too much line on the rod and couldn’t get the fish in my net. Had a lot of fun wrestling with it and the fish finally unhooked itself. What a thrill! This is the most fun I’ve had fishing in a long time. Unfortunately I did not read the directions and at one point put the rod away in the wrong sequence. I got two sections stuck inside another one and broke a several pieces. To my surprise the customer service was incredible! They honored my warranty even without showing the receipt! They replaced four pieces of the Rod! I am just absolutely impressed with the product and the company!
I bought this rod for the portability and packability for fishing remote waters in Maine. The plan is to do some trail running and fishing. So far, it hasn't disappointed me. It's light and perfect for throwing in your trail running pack. I don't know if this is by design, but it actually fits perfectly in the Salomon quiver (it's the perfect length). You can even fit this rod plus your two trekking poles with no problem in the quiver.
It feels much stiffer than the other Tenkara USA rods, and it takes some getting used to. The first time I used this rod, I applied too much pressure and lost a few fish. I also fell and broke one of the sections. Customer service was awesome in helping me get a replacement for it (I emailed them). Now it's good as new!
