Why This Furled Line?
Casting In Wind
Because of the density & stiffness of the furled fluorocarbon combined with our power taper (designed by Moonlit Fly Fishing), this tenkara line casts better than other furled or level tenkara lines in windy conditions. Wind can be a pain in the butt for tenkara fishing but it is a whole lot better with the Nodachi Tenkara Line doing all the hard work for you.
Also, because this line is made of mostly fluorocarbon, it will sink and hold your ground in the water so the gusty wind can’t pick your line up off the water.
Easy Casting for Beginners
This line can also be a great line for beginners struggling with a good casting rhythm. Even when you cast improperly it will cast twice as good as other Tenkara lines.
Able to Cast Most Flies
Because the Nodachi line has a powerful casting taper and the stiffness of fluorocarbon, you will be able to cast heavier flies if you want with it. You can still cast weightless flies as well with ease. This would not be a good line for dry flies as it sinks easy.
Great For Winter Fishing
Because it is made of mostly made of fluorocarbon, it is easy to rub off the ice while fishing in sub-freezing temperatures. Plus it casts great in windy conditions, which happens a lot in winter.
Drawbacks of The Nodachi
The heavier back taper of this furled line makes it sag more than our other furled lines that have a weight-forward tapers. This is not much of a drawback when using the line to cast in wind or when learning to cast as a beginner. Even then, the weight of this line is still lighter than many furled lines from other companies.
It is also not as light of a presentation line as our Shogun line or Katana line are but even then it will give you a decent presentation. A little loss in presentation is a small price to pay for better casting in windy conditions where presentation is less important anyway.
This would not be a good line for dry flies as it sinks easy because of the fluorocarbon material used in the Nodachi line. Our favorite Tenkara Line for dry flies is the Katana furled line.
