Tenkara USA Ito Rod


Options:

$260.00

The Ito is the longest rod in the lineup. It is arguably the most advanced and sweetest tenkara rod in the market, here or in Japan. Available here as rod only or as a kit. The kit includes a traditional line, nylon tapered line and a spool of 4X tippet.

Please select your option(s) to add to your cart.
The Tenkara USA Ito is the longest rod in their lineup. They strived to achieve a very long rod, with the lightest possible feel. A true delight to fish any mountain stream, the Ito will be most at home in wider streams, larger rivers and ponds. It is the main rod we like to recommend for those who fish more open streams. The Ito feels incredibly light at 13ft, as the balance is brought closer to the handle, and still very light at 14ft7in.

Special Features: The Ito features an innovative "zoom" function, which allows the angler to lock one segment in place to fish the rod either at 13ft (390cm) length or, fully extended, at 14ft7in (450cm). The zoom locks both at the butt of the rod with a proprietary cap, and at the end of the handle segment. Having a rod that can be instantly extended an extra 2ft is a true asset in any mountain stream, even some of the smaller streams. A killer combination with a very long line in a large stream, or with a shorter line in a small stream. This is by far the most versatile rod we offer.
We used the highest possible quality cork for the handle and only the finest components to make this our premium rod. The finish is also superb, being a matte black with a gradient dark blue block at the end of each segment.

*rod lengths may vary slightly from indicated due to the telescopic nature of the rods
