Ok so let me see if I can do the math right. A couple means 2, a few means 3, and several is 4 months. So if my math is right, we can hope to get a new rod under our Christmas Tree?

Just excited to see what's next. :lol:

On a serious side, I would much rather wait longer for the right rod, instead of getting it earlier for less quality.

I am always working on new rods, way more than will see the light of the day. Currently I'm devoting myself to 3 different rods. I can't say when they are coming out or exactly what is coming out as I'm still going through a lot of product testing for each of them and am not 100% sure what will be released or when. I'm heading to Japan and China in a couple of weeks for almost a month to work more on them. Plus, I firmly believe all our rods are great rods right now; in efforts to keep our lineup simple and effective, any rod that comes in will likely have to replace one of the current rods - that's a very difficult proposition.

Any new updates? Getting ready to get another rod soon and curious what you may have up your sleeve. Currently have an Ito and love the way it fished so I may just get another one but something shorter may be in order as well.

Daniel is in China and has visited his rod factory this week. My guess is that he's putting the final stamp on a new rod to offer to the masses. I could be completely wrong on this, but I've got a good feeling we will see something new very soon. Hold tight and watch the "Tenkara Gear" page. If you follow the forum this really ins't surprising news.

I brought all the notes I have taken about your feedback and wishes regarding tenkara rods with me to China. Please do not expect immediate releases for new rods; releasing new rods for the sake of releasing a new rod is not my vision for Tenkara USA; but there will be some cool developments for early 2013.

All good Daniel, I am purchasing 3 of the Ebisus for the family so that should help a bit. Can't wait to see what you release next year.
