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.
Good tube exactly as advertised
Just getting started with Tenkara. So far liking it very much. With a “normal” rod - can have fun with smaller fish. Using the Amago can adapt to a variety of fishing styles (fly, small lure, live bait, etc….) without issues. Still finding my way - but that’s part of the fun!
This is a handsome & sturdy case to replace the clear plastic tube on my old Iwana rod. Cap was shipped on very tight but loosened with some prying & tapping -- works OK now.
The rod case is solid and very nice looking. It's a replacement for my original Iwana case that I ran over with my car(luckily the rod wasn't in it). My very old Iwana fits perfectly in the new case.
I've been a customer of Tenkara USA since their early years. The quality of their products, the user experience shopping from the website, and their outstanding customer service keeps me coming back.
This is a top notch company.
perfect rod tube for my hiking rig. thank you
