Make Your Mizuchi Rod Softer Action Rod & More Versatility!

These sections add a little more versatility to your Mizuchi tenkara rod. Swapping in these two soft action sections will make your Mizuchi rod much softer action and also 6 inches shorter in all lengths. This change will turn your Mizuchi rod into a rod that's action and lengths are between the original Mizuchi rod and the FoxFIRE fiberglass rod.

Why We Made These Adjustment Sections?
The original Mizuchi rod can be a little stiffer casting action in the shorter lengths, which this stiffness aids in keeping fish out of snags in tight quarters, so it is by design, and it is also great for nymphing. We have had many people who have contacted us wishing it was a softer action mainly in the shorter 2 lengths to make for smoother softer casting, these Soft Action Attachment Sections do just that for those of you who want a softer action Mizuchi rod. We listen and instead of making a whole new rod you need to buy we made these sections you can swap out to make it a different rod.

This includes section 4 & 5 counting from the handle section (or T3 & T4 if counting from the tip section) that you replace the current 4 & 5 sections on your Mizuchi rod with. These soft action sections have Fiberglass added to them to make them much softer without loosing strength, you may loose backbone thickness but not rod strength. 

Because these sections do have some fiberglass blended in and fiberglass is slightly thicker than carbon fiber, we had to make these sections slightly shorter to make sure the taper fits with the other parts properly. Because of this, your Mizuchi rod will be 16cm (6.3 inches) shorter in all 3 lengths. This length change may be a bonus or negative for some of you. The new Mizuchi rod lengths with this attachment will be 324cm (10.62 feet), 274cm (9.06 feet), and 224cm (7.36 feet). 

These Soft Action Attachment Sections are gloss black color so you can tell the difference between them and your carbon fiber original sections if you switch back and forth. 

Also includes a plastic tube to keep the parts in when not being used.

Improved Casting

There was a definite improvement in my ability to cast weighted leeches or midge pupas with ease and consistent presentations.

Does what it's supossed to do.

One of my go to rods when I'm heading on a fishing trip is the Mutant. I like the zoom features and find that I use it a lot on the streams here in PA. Why am I talking about the Mutant one might ask? It is a softer action Rod with a slow casting action. When I ordered the Mizuchi, I figured that I would like the softer action replacement sections, thinking the Mizuchi would be improved by softening the rod a bit. Well the the replacement sections do soften the rod up a bit and make the casting stroke slower. I found I liked it fine but I have been enjoying the faster action of the original Mizuchi and will probably only be using the soft action rod set up on the smaller class A streams where I would be expecting smaller Brook trout. I enjoy chasing native Brook Trout so I'm glad there are options available to be able to customize the action of the rod. Overall I have been really enjoying my time on the streams with the Mizuchi and highly recommend the rod for anyone fishing the small to medium size streams.

The perfect addition to an already great rod!

Fished both soft action replacement sections in a small stream on a three day camping trip in the Eastern Sierras in California. Caught a significant amount of wild brown trout from 5-11" and some stocked rainbows in the 12-14" range. Definitely noticed a difference between the two actions. When replaced with the soft action sections, the casting performance increases with light weight flies but suffers a bit when casting heavier tungsten beadhead nymphs as compared to the original stiffer sections. I did notice I bounced (lost) less fish as the softer action absorbed more shock of the fight especially on the squirmy smaller fish that tend to come off the hook easily. Overall an awesome addition to increasing even more versatility in the Mizuchi.
