The Tenkara USA Rhodo™ is our lightest rod and easiest choice for most people.
Author Dave Hughes and Fly Rod & Reel magazine gave the Tenkara USA Rhodo the Kudos Award, Dave says in an email to us: “I held my fingers on each side of the +/- 3″ section that has the extension ferrules, and said, ‘This three inches of rod deserves the Kudo.’ Then I caught a fish on it.”
This is an adjustable tenkara rod, which means its length can be adjusted to fit your fishing conditions. With several years of design experience under our belt and feedback from our users, we feel we have achieved what we set out to do: give you a rod that is super light-weight, durable, versatile and feels very precise. Plus, we wanted to design a rod that would make it easy to answer “which tenkara rod should I get?”.
The Rhodo has two patent pending features:
(1) Triple-zoom, which allows you to use the rod at three different lengths – 8’10”/ 9’9”/10’6” = 270/297/320cm. Short when you need it, long when you want it!
(2) Keep your Plug ™ system: allows you to remove the top plug from the rod and store it in the rod itself.

Paul Gaskell says, “Would have given it 6 out of 5 if it was an option Terrific casting rod at all lengths; great tip recovery and no “wobble” after the stop has been made on each casting stroke. This is first and foremost a superb casting and fishing rod. THEN, you have got all the other patented features and the triple zoom functionality…Trip and product report here: http://www.discovertenkara.co.uk/exciting-new-tenkara-rods/RHODO, $215
