Where's the Ayu

Postby tsegelke » Fri Aug 17, 2012 10:47 pm

I was thinking about getting an Ayu rod, but I did not see it listed in the Tenkara Rods page.

Is it only out of stock, or not available any longer? :shock:

Maybe the rod(s) currently in development are going to replace the Ayu...

Could be it's out of stock too. I would think that's the most likely answer. If you want a 13 foot rod, go for the Ito. Two rod in one.

Or here's your chance:

The Ito is a nice rod but I think the Ayu is a better casting rod. It's just sweet. I sold mine and I wish I had it back.
