IWANA™ 12ft (360cm)
The Iwana is our classic all-around rod and a great value. It feels very light-weight and precise. The progressive taper, ultra-light weight, and tip action provides for great battles, even with smaller fish. Quality and strength are by no means compromised, and landing large fish is not unheard of (8lbs mentioned on a forum thread!). The original choice of many early adopters outside of Japan, the Iwana is still a great choice to help you fall in love with tenkara.
These rods have a beautiful "glossy carbon" finish, where you can see the high-quality carbon fiber material through a nice glossy finish.
