Shimotsuke Kosasa 210
I received my Kosasa rod from Chris about a week ago. When I took it out of the package I was astounded. It was very light and super soft. Are you sure it's a 25-penny rod, Chris? It feel very light and had no problems moving a 9-foot size 2 line around in my basement(it's still winter in Iowa. The Kosasa looks like it will be a great rod for both tenkara and microfishing.
P.S. I have read about using cut-up soft plastics or small pieces of Powerbait on the tanago hooks. Does anyone have a good brand, size, or color for these as baits?

The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
