No preference.

I like the clear too. 27 cm is about 10.6 inches. I'd like that size of a net just in case you get a bigger fish.

My Tenkara Rods:
13' Ayu, 12' Yamame, 11' with a conversion handle, and an Ito.

My Wife's Tenkara Rods:
12' Ebisu and 13.5' Amago, 12' Iwana with a conversion handle, and an Ito.
