The Sato is a compact and lightweight tenkara rod, and it is a an adjustable length “zoom” tenkara rod.
At its shorter length it is perfect for tighter streams, and at its full length it will be ideal when the stream opens up again or when you find a bigger pool to cast your fly. 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 Sato 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.

Tvdavis says, “A Very Nice Rod with Great Potential. The Sato is a highly versitile rod owning to its multi-length configuration. The action is excellent; the rod loads well with a #3.5 level line. The rod is very lightweight and has very little tip heaviness, and this only in the 390 configuration. Materials are excellent. Fit and finish are excellent. If you are looking for one rod to fish on moderate mountain streams for tenkara sized fish (6-16 inches) then this just might be the rod for you! Highly Recommended!!”SATO, $215
