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.
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

Domestic shipping is $4, via USPS First Class Mail (unless ordered with an item that must go via Priority Mail, and which has a higher shipping charge). The charge is added to your order automatically.
Please note: All packages are shipped via USPS. If you have a PO Box, please list ONLY the PO Box in your address, not the PO Box and your street address.
The charge for international shipping depends on the destination country, the weight of the package, the overall length of the package and the value of the package.
International purchases may be subject to import duties and taxes. I cannot keep track of all import regulations in all countries written in all languages. Understanding and paying import duties and taxes is the responsibility of the buyer.
TenkaraBum.com no longer ships to the UK. The new VAT regulations are too onerous for a one-man shop that rarely ships anything to the UK anyway. I apologize.
The US Postal Service has suspended all shipments to Australia. There are two alternatives. One is the same price as the USPS had been (as calculated at checkout) but may take 3-4 weeks. The other is UPS, which is considerably faster (3-5 days), but also considerably more expensive. If you want the faster, UPS shipment, I will send an invoice for the required amount.
Canadian buyers have the option to prepay import duty and VAT (which also eliminates the CAN$9.96 Canada Post charge for collecting the import duty and VAT). The prepayment option costs a flat US$6.95, which can yield a substantial savings for larger purchases. This option is only for packages under $400 in value AND 24" or less in length.
