Iwana 11'. Which is it??

I purchased another Tenkara USA rod; the Iwana 11' (not to be confused with the Iwana 12'). I wanted a very fine, very small-stream rod for small (4-8") fish. On this site the rod was identified as the most delicate rod for sale by Tenkara USA, and on the site's page on How to Choose the RIght Tenkara Rod it is billed as: "Most fishing done is small streams, with little overhead room".

So here's the rub: The paper taped around the rod when it arrives states "This is our large fish/large river rod". So.....

Which is it?

Wrong wording on the paper I would guess. I have an 11ft and it is not a big fish rod. It works very well on what you want to fish.

Was just a typo on the label is all. Some of the Amago content went on the description as the 11" Iwana is not out big fish rod like the Amago is.

Thanks very much, TJ. I had a sneaky suspicion that was the case. Figured you'd want to know either way.
