Original 6:4 Ebisu. It was my first tenkara rod and so it has that nostalgia going for it - but I really like the feel of it. I hate to see the ebisu leaving the TUSA lineup. I think that the Ebisu has more tactile feedback, when casting, than my other rods. Yet still plenty of backbone to land larger fish.

Anthony,
I agree. I find I use my Ebisu far more often than my Iwana. I feel much more connected to the line.

My go to rod is the longest one for the situation. Except for when I know there are big fish. Then I use the Amago.

Ebisu. Once I fished with one I never looked back!
