TenkaraBum.com is located in
New York City, which is essentially locked down.
Package pickup has
been suspended. My neighborhood post office is closed. I go outside as little as possible because I am in an "at risk" group.
TenkaraBum.com is still open, for now. Next shipments tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, April 8 (rain in the forecast).
Most international flights have been cancelled, so there is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.
Nissin Fine Mode Kosansui 320!!!!!
by Jeff Roberts
Rainbow on the 320
I have to admit, I love this series of rods! I own both the 270 and the 320, have the 360 on order, and am about to buy a 390. IMO this series is the best bang for your buck in lightness, sensitivity, and fish fighting power. They are a tip flex rod, but the tip is light and casting is accurate. I recently took the 320 to Arkansas and it flat out performed. Took many trout including these bruisers in the photos.
I now own quite a few tenkara style rods including the expensive one. I still find that it's hard for me to put these down. I have said it once and will repeat myself, "this series is a MUST buy in my book!"
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten” – Benjamin Franklin
"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." Col. Robert Venables 1662
As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.
The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
