Universal Tenkara Rod Caps

Postby Daniel @ Tenkara USA » Tue Sep 11, 2012 1:01 am

We just received a new cap for tenkara rods that is of a "universal" size, so one size will fit any of the rods. Unlike very low-profile and lightweight wooden plugs that come with the rods, this one will be less prone to being lost. It also offers better protection for the end of the rod, and the line may stay attached to the rod with this cap on.

I copied your post from here and added it you the Tenkara USA facebook page for you. Hope all is going well in China and you have a successful trip.

I bought 4 new caps for when we take more than one rod on the water. I like the idea of being able to keep your line on the rod with the cap in place. Great idea! Thanks.
