The Zako is the “work horse” of our rod line-up. It’s the perfect all-around tenkara rod and handles a broad range of fishing situations – from small brookies to large, fat, browns. At only 19” long you never have to leave home without it. This tenkara rod telescopes out to 12ft and has a 6:4, medium-fast action flex. Think of it like your 5wt regular fly rod. No reel makes for a quick and streamlined set-up. Spend more time on the water and less time setting up. Includes spare tip, rod sock and hard travel tube. Pair with the Performance Tip for a faster action (sold separately).
