Nissin Honryu 380 QUICK REVIEW
by Jimi Fly
If any rod deserves to be named after Ebisu (who was a god) then it is the Nissin Honryu 380. First off this rod seemingly casts in slow motion. It puts the fly right where you want it to go. The balance is amazing. It is super light and a better rod for lighter lines like #2.5 or even #1 line. With 12 foot of #3 line and a 3 foot tippet I found that the line sang with every fish I caught. I have owned 5 "Tenkara" rods before this one and with this rod I finally feel like I know what a tenkara rod is supposed to be. There is a HUGE difference between this rod and all the other rods I have tried from different companies.
To conclude if you like driving a Yugo or a Pinto that is just fine but for me from now on when I fish I will be driving a Rolls Royce and catching fish in proper style.
May your line always sing!
“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.
