Zen Tenkara Replacement Parts


  1. Every piece of a Zen Tenkara rod can be replaced. Count each section from the lillian of your rod (where you attach your line) down toward the handle, to find out which rod part needs to be replaced.
    Note: Section 1 & 2 come together and have no painted stripe on them.

  1. Broke your tenkara fly rod? Lost a Rod Cap or Tube Cap? Not a problem. Tenkara fly rods are easily repaired by simply replacing the broken section. Easy to fix and our warranty keeps it inexpensive. We’re not looking to profit from a fall or an accident. We just want to fix your fly rod, replace your lost parts and get you back on the water fishing again.

Select your rod from the pull down menu, then select the section. Note: We consider the tip section with the lillian cord to be Section #1 and continue counting down towards the handle.

When you receive your new rod part, unscrew the butt cap on the handle, remove the broken section by sliding it out, then replace it with your new one. Remember to untie the overhand knot in the lillian cord so it doesn’t get jammed and slides out freely.

    To date, I’ve replaced three sections of the Kyōjin II. Once due to dumbassery that involved a snag, and other was a monster Chum whose power found the limitations of my technique. In both cases, I was back on the water within a few days of ordering. Now, I carry replacement sections for the top three sections so my day isn’t ruined.

      Matt those top sections on all tenkara rods are the most vunerable. Technique takes time. But, if those top sections are taking the brunt of the hit, the play or the steering you will have problems. May we suggest keeping your rod lower, arm out to the side and really focusing on distributing the meat down the length of the rod. In other words, give the fish butt…push the handle twards the fish while pulling the rest of the rod back. It is rare that I break a rod section…on salmon, bonefish, tarpon, etc. It takes a bit to learn the flex profile of this rod but when you’ve got it the breaks will stop. If one does occur it should be happening much lower on the rod…that’s usually from HUGE pressure. Breaks up top are technique errors. Hang in thefe and reach out to discuss this more. Always happy to email or talk by phone.

    Thank you so much for your quality rods. I have the older style 5:5 rod and it has held up very well for its age and use. Zen was very quick to ship out my replacement part. Thanks again!

    • Karin Miller

      We loved our old 5:5…a classic. Thank you for being part of the Zen family! Happy New Year and happy fishing.
