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 purchased the Hane for my brother & he just loves it. We get out on the water together. He in his kayak and me in my canoe. He got "hooked" last summer when I was fly fishing and I gave him my ITO to try out. He marvelled at the simplicity as he caught small fish so easily. So this spring I got him his own rod and the Hane because it is so compact. He does a lot of hiking so it fits easily in his pack and is always ready. Puts a new dimension on his journeys.
This is my 4th different tenkara rod, this one is my newest/least used and only rod to break in the lower 3rd of the blank. I got hung up on the bottom, and admittedly gave it a big hook set as I thought it was a fish and it just crumbled in the lower section. Ive abused my other tenkara rods much harder in my opinion, broken tip section once on a different rod so very much question the durability of this rod (unless I unknowingly dropped this on a rock weakening the blank). 3 stars because I continued to fish the last 4 ft tip section during that outing and still landed and played many fish it was great. But wouldn’t be confident in purchasing again.
I was worried when I received the box, it was crushed. However the rod container saved it. The rod container is solid. I have not been able to fish with this yet but the rod feels balanced in practice casts. Reminds me a bit of cane pole, I fished with as kid. But way nicer feeling and balance.
Great quality. My backpack rod that I can pull out whenever I see a nice spot while hiking. Mostly have used it on smaller fish, but seems to have the backbone to handle medium / larger fish as well. So far so good!
Fun to use while it lasted. Lightweight and packs down well. Unfortunately, my rod snapped on the third time out. Line was stuck on river bottom. Tugging to try to get it loose and the rod just broke about a third of the way from the end. Makes me wonder about it handling bigger fish.
