Tenkara USA Rod Cases
***Your Tenkara USA rod comes packaged with this case. The stand-alone case is available if you want to upgrade your older cases. You do not need to purchase a case if you are purchasing a new rod.
Although a tenkara rod is its own case, these new Tenkara USA rod cases offer added protection when throwing the rod in the back of your car and are a nice decorative piece when the rods are not in use. The cases also come with a stretchy rod sock.
The new Tenkara USA are made of a carbon-fiber and fiberglass composite with one solid screw cap. The rod cases feature artwork by Jeremy Shellhorn, the person behind the a lot of Tenkara USA design work.
The tubes come in three different lengths:
Amago, Iwana, Rhodo: 21.6" (55cm)
Sato: 23.6" (60cm)
Ito: 25.6" (65cm)
The tubes are all the same diameter, and share the same cap thread. However, each case comes with a cap with the name of the rod selected (other than the Sato rod model which will be a blank screw cap). Rod socks vary in color: black for Amago and Iwana, Red for Sato and Rhodo, Blue for Ito.
Nearly indestructible! After crushing my original green Iwana tube under my seat in my jeep (thank goodness Tenkara has these tubes or I would be short a rod!). I ordered a new tube and I can say it out does the original! It seems stronger although I am not sure it would hold up to my 200 lbs under my seat! But if it does as good of job as original that is a win! Plus the graphics are pretty cool!
Truly a classy rod tube. Excellent finishes and designs always at the top. It does its job of protecting the rod perfectly

I’m a fly fishing person who enjoys stalking trout in the hills and cold waters. I also ride motorcycles on the twisty roads that snake along these beautiful rivers. Several years ago I stopped to rest on one of my rides, sitting low on the river bank enjoying the cool fog rolling off the river on that hot summer day, I thought: I would love a fishing kit I could pack on the bike. Enter Tenkara USA 🇺🇸.
The Iwana rod was my first and it packs easy in a backpack and with a line keeper, a few flies, and forceps ... I’m always ready to fish from the bike or a vehicle. It’s such a fantastic minimalist set up.
The rod is a little long at 12 feet and that’s great fishing from the river bank. A light lift of the line, movement of the wrist and I’m dropping flies with precision in riffles, eddy lines, near logs, and having a blast. If you ever wondered how to get totally in flow, have minutes or hours pass by as mysteriously as a river current drifting into the beyond, then put a Tenkara rod in your hand and cast a river bank. Cold water trout, warm water small mouth bass will hit hard and run swift as you play in the landing of these spirited fish. So you don’t live on a river ... there are always fun times as well at local lakes, ponds, and boat landings where sun fish abound. Like to fish ... get a Tenkara USA 🇺🇸 Rod. Be Ready!
