Suntech Kurenai H30

by Rick
(up state NY)

My Kurenai H30 just may be my favorite rod. It fits the size of stream I enjoy fishing the most.

I have used 2 different lines, 8' #3 tenkara line - 1-2' 6# amnesia and 2'-3' 6X; and a 8' Mystic Creek furled ultra light premium, 1' 6# amnesia, 2-3' 6X. Both lines work well. I picked up 2 nice wild brookies today with a #12 red silk and light partridge hackle tenkara fly. I fished a small creek just 5 min. from my house.

A wonderful little rod that does what it was designed to do. All is good.

I hope you'd like the H30 because the H33 is out of stock - probably until next fall. You might also consider the Nissin Air Stage 340, which is similar to the H33.

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.
