RHODO™ 8'10"/9'9"/10'6" (adjustable)

$250.00
Description

Walking down the bank, you notice a trout hanging in the current. It's oblivious to your presence. You rig your tenkara rod, look up and realize the stream is choked with overhanging limbs. You extend the rod, but in this case you don't extend it all the way, just to the first setting under 9ft in length. You cast and catch the fish. 

For these situations we developed the RHODO™, a rod that can be fished short when things get tight, or longer when the stream opens up. 

The Tenkara USA® RHODO™ is the lightest feeling tenkara rod we make. With several years of design experience under our belt and feedback from our users, we feel we have achieved what we set out to do: give you a rod that is super light-weight, durable, versatile and feels very precise. We wanted to design a rod that would make it easy to answer "which tenkara rod should I get if I mostly fish very small streams?”
