I'm sold on the rod and your company

Used your floating line today for Golden trout in the Kernville, CA watershed – was I impressed! Casts easily with good control even in windy conditions, floated well without causing drag. Great line – worth the price.
I want to thank you for the rapid response you gave me regarding my new Zen Tenkara Zako Rod I bought at the fly fishing expo! I got the new tips the next day after we talked! Thanks again for caring about a customer!
- James Franklin
Such an exquisite, in depth and open sharing for an answer to an email inquiry. I did not expect it. I loved it. The kind of company, answer and owner one seldom experiences today
- Robert, Chicago
Love the Sagi. Really apparent when I had to use my “other” rod yesterday. Thank you for making such a great product.

The yang: Zen has taken traditional Japanese Tenkara where it hasn't gone before, testing limits, breaking boundaries and defining American Tenkara so that customers can push their skills to achieve a thrill like no other.
