    So now that I have the Suzume, was comparing it to a rod i just got, the Rhodo from TUSA.

    So, lengthwise, the Suzume won out as it was shorter at its shortest length and a teensy bit longer at its longer length.

    As far as rod action, when casting the Suzume had far less wobble and allowed longer fly first casts, side by side, same line, tippet and fly. Big win for Suzume in this area.

    Stiffness: The Suzume has a beefier feel and is a thicker rod but maintains sensitivity. The Rhodo is super floppy at full length, this is the length that the difference in stiffness is most apparent. I like a slightly less floppy action especially in tight close quarters fishing where you cant lift the rod too much (or you will be in the bushes). This plus the rod action sealed the deal for me.
    Given the casting superiority and better feel of the Zen Suzume, I returned the Rhodo back to TUSA today.

    Wanted to let you know since no one ever does rod comparisons it seems.

    So having fished the Suzume extensively since the other review posted on August 31, 2021 where it compared favorably to the Rhodo, I wanted to say that the rod continues to perform remarkably well at all 3 lengths. It is evident that the carbon fiber utilized is top notch. The rod is a bit more stiff (as expected) at its shorter length which works since I use this in tight cover situations. I do love the mid and full length as well extending whenever cover allows. The castability and play of the rod are great. It is very well balanced. It is my “just right” triple zoom tight cover rod (ala Goldilocks). I definitely give it 5 stars *****

      Ana so happy to hear this and so pleased that you are loving the rod. We are quite proud of the Suzume.
