Universal rod cap

Universal rod cap

Ok, how do you use the universal cap and does it really serve a purpose? How do you use it with the line attached?

What the Universal Cap allows you to do is leave the line connected to the lillian. There is enought space between this cap and shaft of the tenkara rod so the line does not get pinched.

After wrapping the line on the line holder (leaving a foot or so of line outside of the holder) and running the holder over the shaft of the rod until it butts up against the cork handle, then just put the univ cap over the end of the rod and lock it down.

Now you can safely store the rod or move on.

LOL considering I just lost the tip plug for my Shimano ZL, I though about one of these but really like sleek fit of the small plugs.

Thank you all for your help, having fished with western ( bamboo ) for the last 25 yrs this is proving to be quite a challenge !

Small plastic vacuum port caps work well also. They're flexible enough to not pinch the illian yet snug enough to stay put. Your local auto parts store has them packaged in several sizes and bright colors for 2 or 3 dollars.
