Testimonials

Let satisfied tenkara anglers speak for us.

Tenkara Usa Ito Testimonial.

Stuart Cugnoni 

“Just gives you that additional reach when you need it, fantastic telescopic rod and goes completely well with my Tenkara backpack both the Sato and the Ito have me covered for any situation.”



Tenkara Usa Ito Rod testimonial.

Anthony Leach 

“This rod is amazing. I’ve had nothing but good experiences with it. I love the 14’7” option. I find myself using my Ito more than my regular fly rod because it’s more convenient and it can pretty much pull in fish in the same places as well. Also the length helps with presentation a lot.”

I like using my tenkara gear to catch: Smaller size fish (say 8-12" / 20-30cm), Medium size fish (12-16" / 30-40cm), Larger size fish (16-20" / 40-50cm), Trout
I like using my tenkara rod in: Very small streams, Mountain streams, Larger streams or rivers, Stillwater
All types of water where extra reach is preferred

I really like the ITO rod ,took a little bit to get used to casting a bigger rod but casts real well. Have caught all types of fish and size of fish. Trout, bluegill, bass of all types, crappie and even large carp, I did have my first ITO break on a VERY LARGE Carp but I think any rod would have snapped with the size of carp it took to break. Also I had caught many large carp and even landed a few after tough fights so that may have stressed the rod. Don’t particularly recommend you take this rod carp fishing, but I know it is possible to land one on this rod. Tenkara USA stood behind their warranty and sent me a complete new rod for a nominal fee. Good deal seeing I only had the handle left! Would definitely purchase more rods from Tenkara USA in the future one of my favorite rods and I have many from all the brands.

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.

small to medium size mountain streams

Have had the Ito out an a few trips so far, the more I fish this rod the more I'm liking the reach when extended. I like to choke up on the handle with my thumb and forefinger touching the blank, gives me more casting feel and the rod is balanced and feels lighter. The rod cast light #2-2.5 level lines 5-6m long with ease and I have no doubt will handle longer lines and larger water and fish while being a lot of fun catching 6-12" trout on the smaller streams I fish.

I have never been disappointed with a Tenkara rod. Or any product from Tenkara USA. I most recently bought the Ito and at 13 feet it is so easy to cast and feels great. At 14 it’s a little slower but great for that extra reach. I cannot recommend the Ito or any product from this company enough!
