I have been watching Marie Kondo’s show “Tidying Up” and have taken a long hard look at a lot of my possessions and which of them bring me joy. Over the years I have collected a lot of tenkara rods. All of them are in good condition and perfectly useable, but I just have too many to fully appreciate and utilize each one. So after much internal debate and waffling back and forth I have decided to send a few off to a new home where they might spark joy again for someone else.
Below is what I am selling. Prices include shipping in the USA.
Each rod comes with a rod tube (pictured with the rod) and a six (6) pack of Japanese flat spools (due to a translation mistake I ordered 100 instead of 10). I am throwing them in at no extra charge.
A few grams of Japanese zenmai. I have more than I can use and it has been sitting in my tying drawer (no spools though).
BT Classic $40

Hit Wave $25
An old rod but in good condition 540cm long when extended. Comes with a removable grip sleeve. More of Keiryu rod. The rod case is $10 on Tenkara Bum so really you are paying $15 for the rod and getting spools too w/ shipping…

The rod case is $10 on Tenkara Bum so really you are paying $15 for the rod and getting spools too w/ shipping…
