We just heard that Tenkara Rod Co, makers of some incredible compact Tenkara rods and kits just teamed up with TOPO designs for the smallest Tenkara package you’ve ever seen. It’s smooth, it’s lightweight, it’s packable . . . and it’s damn sexy. The kits comes with a svelt hip pack, leader wallet, and super compact rod kit that all fit in an 11″ x 4″ x 5″ package you can take with you anywhere just in case the opportunity to hit the water comes along.
The heart of the kit is the 10.5′ carbon fiber rod with hand furled thread line that collapses down to 9.5″ and nestles perfectly in the hip pack. It’s a 6:4 moderate flex rod that is perfect for fish up to a few pounds.
We’re excited to hear more about this kit ($300). It’s a great partnership and the compact package is perfect for someone wanting to dive into the world of lightweight backcountry Tenkara.
Note: We get to keep most of the gear that we test out. While this is a perk, we try hard to give everything an unbiased review no matter what.
If you end up buying something through a link on our site, we generally get a small commission on the referral, this won't cost you more, but helps us keep the lights on around here!
