I love the simplicity of Tenkara. I do not enjoy the delicate nature of the rod tips. I am a clutz so the warrantee is very important to me.

Wide river (Potomac) mostly and wider creeks, some lakes with dams.

Really a great product, thoughtfully designed and packaged. The kit makes the buying process (and decision fatigue!) easy. Thank you.

Idaho Rivers

I have several Tenkara rods in my arsenal(16), my latest addition two months ago was the Sato, I have never experienced such a light balanced Tenkara in the past several years. I have caught in excess of 200 Trout, Whitefish and Brown trout on the Boise river, in Idaho. I was fishing this afternoon and I hooked a massive Brown trout that snapped the third section on my Sato, it took one phone call to Tenkara USA and my part was shipped today. Can’t beat the customer service and the friendliness of the staff.

Primarily lakes and streams in the area.

The Satoki is a very nice Tenkara rod … I am totally new to Tenkara so I have a lot to learn. Tenkara USA certainly has helped me to develop an understanding of the Tenkara process. My goal now is to catch a big fish on the Satoki!

small/mid sized rivers, lakes

It is January in WI, so i have not actually fished the satoki yet. Practice casting it is telling me this rig is going to be great. The flex profile is perfect for most of my trout fishing purposes (med./fairly large fish, drys, wets, nymphs, and small streamers). The rod is beautiful with a great finish and parts that fit nicely. (high quality). The foam handle and artwork is a cherry on the top. I am thrilled with this purchase, and can't wait to fish.

My new go to rod

I own several tenkara rods and find that either I needed one shorter or longer than the one in my hand, now with this rod I can carry the one rod, and cover the same footprint as all the others in my collection. The only thing I'm not partial to is the foam grips, I'm more of a cork person, but aside from that this is a good quality built rod and will see many years of use.

Well, it's winter where I live and every things frozen over right now, but, spring is coming, I hope. The quality of the equipment I ordered and received seems great. The handling of my order was very quick, with plenty of updates on ordering, shipping, and the arrival of my order. I really appreciate this. You company is very personable, and responsive. I have loved doing business with Tenkara USA.

I prefer wading in moving water and fish mostly in western PA. I mostly fish, small rivers, and l...

I purchased my Satoki on the morning of the first day of sale. Two days after it arrived which, thank you Tenkara USA, was very quick, I was on a larger stream in western PA, and fished all three lengths. The first two lengths are, what I would call, “crisper feeling” than fishing the rod at its longest length. The rod was very enjoyable at all three lengths. Because of the size of stream I was fishing, I fished mostly at its longest length, which is a more relaxed feel, and experimented with leaders of various lengths to see what felt best. The Satoki felt best, for me, with a 16 foot furled leader which I make myself. It really was quite amazing how well this Rod handled that leader, and at all rod lengths! At the rods longest length I caught two rainbows of 16 inch and 17 inch and the Satoki handled those fish with ease. I am really very impressed. Keep up the good work Tenkara USA! (I still think my Ito is my baby though, time will tell!)
