The KOMODO zoom Tenkara rod is a great choice for small streams and tight fishing, I would recommend targeting fish under 16 inches.
Also a Great Kids Rod option and with 2 lengths it can grow with them.
The soft casting action of this rod will help you cast more naturally and accurately. If you are using level line, you will want size #3.5 with this rod for best performance.
The Zoom Section lock at the butt cap and at the joint of the sections to hold it secure when collapsed.
We also redesigned our handle to fit the hand more comfortably to reduce hand fatigue and to give you more casting control. You will most likely be pleased with the feel of the handle shape.
The matte black color keeps the rod from reflecting the sun and possibly alerting the fish of your presence. Despite being matte black, this rod is very appealing to the eyes and has a quality finish.
K. C. Foley: “I ordered the KOMODO Tenkara rod as a back up to my Nissin ZeroSum Tenkara rod, and for my young nephew to use when he visits. I was very impressed with the quality and handling of this rod. I usually fish small bushy and overgrown streams and the zoom length capability is a plus. The KOMODO rod is now one of my go-to Tenkara rods that is fun to fish and can take some abuse.”
Gonzan: “I’ve just purchased the Komodo from Trekka Outfitters here in Chattanooga, and I have to say, I am VERY pleased. I wanted a lighter and more versatile rod for small creeks where my beloved TenkaraUSA Yamame is just a bit too long and a bit beefier than necessary. If you’d told me a few months ago that an $80 (Holiday sale!) rod would cast so smoothly yet so precisely and with excellent back, I would have laughed. Boy am I delighted to be proven wrong!
You’ve provided an excellent rod at an gorgeously affordable price that makes the joy of this sport accessible to so many who wouldn’t otherwise be able to. That is truly a wonderful thing. Keep up the great work!”
