TenkaraBum Rod Sock

The TenkaraBum Rod Sock is a result of customer requests. People have told me they really like the rod sock that comes with the Suntech Suikei TenkaraBum 36 and wanted to know if they could purchase additional  socks for their other rods.

I posed the question to Suntech and once again they have exceeded expectations. Instead of Suntech rod socks, they offered TenkaraBum rod socks! That was an offer I couldn't refuse.

The photos below show a green sock. The TenkaraBum rod socks I now have in stock are black. The "TenkaraBum" is still in white.

It is a stretchy knit rod sock, but it is a much thinner material than most knit rod socks.

There is a slit in the back into which you insert the rod. I find it works better if the grip end is inserted first.

The Nissin Fine Mode Kosansui rods do not come with rod socks, and some people are not terribly excited by the rod socks that do come with the most Nissin rods. Now a much nicer rod sock is available.
