A few rods for sale


(Isaac Tait) #1

I have been watching Marie Kondo’s show “Tidying Up” and have taken a long hard look at a lot of my possessions and which of them bring me joy. Over the years I have collected a lot of tenkara rods. All of them are in good condition and perfectly useable, but I just have too many to fully appreciate and utilize each one. So after much internal debate and waffling back and forth I have decided to send a few off to a new home where they might spark joy again for someone else.

Below is what I am selling. Prices include shipping in the USA.

Each rod comes with a rod tube (pictured with the rod) and a six (6) pack of Japanese flat spools (due to a translation mistake I ordered 100 instead of 10). I am throwing them in at no extra charge.

Zenmai $25
A few grams of Japanese zenmai. I have more than I can use and it has been sitting in my tying drawer (no spools though).


BT Classic $40
Used in good condition

BT WISCO $50
Old school no longer in production. Big fish rod (think Carp or Pike).

Gamakatsu Ryokei 390 $360 new I used her once on a river in Izu Peninsula so, I am asking $200


Hit Wave $25
An old rod but in good condition 540cm long when extended. Comes with a removable grip sleeve. More of Keiryu rod. The rod case is $10 on Tenkara Bum so really you are paying $15 for the rod and getting spools too w/ shipping…

High Potential $25
Another old rod I found in a Japanese thrift store. Fished it a little, it is also in good condition.
The rod case is $10 on Tenkara Bum so really you are paying $15 for the rod and getting spools too w/ shipping…

TUSA Ito New $245 asking $105
There is one small flake in the paint that does not affect usability or durability.

Shoot me a message with any questions.
