Joco. I demand you catch a 10lb tenkara carp and post the photos :D . That would truly be an accomplishment! For those who've never caught a carp, think of a 10lb sunfish(bream) with a turbo-charger and a bad attitude!

Longer rods can handle bigger fish and heavier tippets. I saw a video of steelheadding with a 20' Tenkara type rod. A 15-20 footer should also do well for carp. I was amazed to see telescopic, reeless rods to 55' at allfishingbuy.com.

:D
I don't fish for carp, but we see them from time to time... and always make a cast if they are within range..
I've had several break me off... this is the largest I've been able to land. A 3 pounder. (it's also my largest fish on the Tenkara) 13'6" Amago.
