Zen Tenkara is the ONLY company that offers an interchangable tip section for all our rods (excluding the Kyojin Tenkara Spey Fly Rod) that allows anglers to customize the feel and action of their tenkara rod. Change out the Standard Tip for the Performance Tip for a faster action tip. You’ll notice the different immediately with super quick hook-sets, ease when using heavier set-ups or castng into the wind, and a punch when throwing longer lines. The Performance Tip works great for Czech and Euro Nymphing too. All Zen Tenkara Fly Rods (excluding the Kyojin Tenkara Spey Fly Rod) have interchangable tips, so the Performance Tip fits the Zako, Suzume, Suimenka, Sagi and Taka Tenkara Rods. Features a color-coded lillian for easy identification.

I recently switched to the Zen Zako from a zoom rod from another manufacturer. I bought the performance tip and found it perfectly fits my style of fishing which switches more between light flies and heavier streamers or beaded nymphing. I rarely used the zoom on the old rid, so this was ideal for me.

I have recieved the Zen Sagi rod with performance tip with Karens excellent help. I have not had a chance to fish yet. The quality of these rods and tips is the best so i look forward to fishing rivers here in Wisconsin with this gear soon!
