The Tenkara USA Sato is a compact and lightweight tenkara rod. At its shorter length it’s absolute best for tighter streams, and at its full length it’ll be ideal when the stream opens up again or while you discover a bigger pool to cast your fly.
Tenkara has achieved what they got down to do: come up with a rod that may be super light-weight, durable, versatile and feels very precise.
The Sato has two patent pending features:
Triple-Zoom: this permits you to use the rod at three different lengths – 10’8″, 11’10”, and 12’9″ (330, 360, 390 cm). Tenkara recommends rods which can be closer to 13 ft, yet 12 ft is the typical rod length. So, they felt a rod with the 3 such a lot commonplace lengths would be a very easy choice: short to ease you into tenkara, long to come up with a taste of the benefits presented by a long tenkara rod.
Keep Your Plug system (patent pending): Tenkara designed the Keep Your Plug system after realizing other people lost their rod plugs regularly. Next time you go fishing, do away with the plug from the highest end of your rod and insert it into the outlet on the bottom of your rod.
ACTION: We’re phasing out the Tenkara rod index system. If in case you have been tenkara fishing for sometime and desire a frame of reference, the Sato is a fast action 6:4.
