Well TFO has entered the tenkara market. I just left Fly Masters of Indianpolis who recieved there shipment of TFO's Tenkara rods. They have the 10'6" and 11'6" soft hackle rods. I went to test cast one before work. I cast the 10'6" rod with Moonlite's curled leader. I was able to cast the rod in the parking for about 10 minutes. Only real difference between TFO's rod and others is how fast it is. The Soft Hackle rod is stiffer and much faster. The prices start at 199.99 and come with rod bag and spare 2 tip section. I will try to get up there this weekend for further reviewing.
