Despite its beautiful flowers sometimes anglers find themselves losing flies to the overreaching branches of the rhododendron. We developed the Rhodo™, a rod that can be fished short when things get tight, or longer when the stream opens up.

The Tenkara USA Rhodo™ is the lightest feeling tenkara rod we make. 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:
Triple-zoom: this allows you to use the rod at three different lengths - 8’10”/ 9’9”/10’6” = 270/297/320cm. Since we began Tenkara USA people have been asking for a sub-9ft tenkara rod. We felt that a short rod could come in handy in some cases but for the most part anglers would miss the advantage that comes from fishing with a long tenkara rod. So, we developed a rod that could be the best of both worlds: short when you need it, long when you want it!
Keep your Plug ™ system (patent pending): We're very excited about this very simple yet innovative feature. After hearing that no one has ever been able to keep their tenkara rod plug for longer than a year we decided we should find a solution for you to never lose your plug again. We designed the “Keep your plug”™ system. Next time you go fishing, remove the plug from the top end of your rod and insert it into the hole at the bottom of your rod. The Rhodo will come with two plugs on the rod; please leave one at home in case you ever need it.

  • Paul Gaskell says     5 out of 5 flies
  • 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:

  • Best Small Stream Rod to date
  • Location/type of places I fish: Intermountain West
  • This rod is the best small stream rod currently available. It is very light weight, well balanced, and aesthetically beautiful. The materials are excellent. The fit and finish are excellent. Although this rod is short it has a pleasing action and loads well with short level lines. If you are a fisher of "thin blue lines", then here it is, the king of small creek rods!

  • My New Favorite Tenkara Rod
  • Location/type of places I fish: FL by way of PA
  • As a former 11' Iwana devotee, I have to say that in the few weeks I have fished the Rhodo, it has quickly become my favorite tenkara rod. Top quality finish, ultralight in hand, and the opportunity to fish at sub 11' lengths (which comes in handy in the small brushy streams I typically fished in Pennsylvania). I've always been partial to furled lines, but accurate level line casts are a breeze with a simple flick of the wrist.

  • Создано для ручьёв Кольского
  • Location/type of places I fish: Реки и ручьи Кольского полуострова
  • На всех размерах работает отлично, заброс лёгкий и точный. При вываживании рыбы оно играет с ней. Даже от маленькой форельки впечатления остаются незабываемые. Адреналин в зашкале.
