  • adventureR says     4 out of 5 flies
  • Decent Tippet, Convenient to have delivered to my front door with other gear.
  • Location/type of places I fish: Rivers, streams, & lakes, in the shade where the sunlight reflects off the water onto the overhanging foliage.
  • Tippet is good, a little expensive. Seems very translucent in the water, holds knots well and thin. Convenient to order with other Tenkara gear, instead of driving for hours to find there's no 5X line.

  • Ok tippet, but not sure it is any worse than others
  • Location/type of places I fish: WNC Mountain Streams and small lakes
  • I use Tenkara USA's 5x tippet. I've noticed that it is easy "kinked", may be the word. If it is rubbed on rocks quite often, much like we have around my neck of the woods in Western North Carolina, it seems to rub it the wrong way and cause the line to seem "kinked" or curled. Although, it seems to do it often to me, I imagine others do it just as much as tippet is tippet and very dainty as it's supposed to be.
