Nissin Zerosum 360 7:3

by Jeff Roberts
(Tyler, Texas)

The Zerosum rods are classic JDM quality. True tenkara rods and absolutely the Crown Jewels in my rod collection. These have it all, light, sensitive, precise casting. Expensive, yes, but you get every bit of performance you expect for the price. I have landed many small bass and sunfish on the rod so far. If I had to choose one favorite rod (hopefully that never happens) the Zerosums take the cake.

Very popular in Japan, too

When John Vetterli was in Japan earlier this year the rod he saw most tenkara anglers use was the Nissin Zerosum. They are pretty widely regarded as great rods.

Yep, Zerosum was the predominant rod choice I saw in Japan.

I recently landed a 22" 4lb largemouth on my Zerosum. I am well impressed with these rods.

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.
