This proprietary tenkara line is a unique Zen design. We took the best part of both traditional fly fishing (casting) and tenkara (simplicity), and “fused” them together in our Zen Fusion Tenkara Line Series. Available in 3 different grain weights to perfectly match your rod: LIGHT, MID-WEIGHT and BIG.
Fusion Tenkara Line: LIGHT is a delicate, level, supple, floating line. It has a welded connection loop with a tag end for quick attach and detachment and a small loop at the opposite end for your tippet and/or leader. Light as a feather but still dense enough to cast through wind, Fusion Tenkara Line LIGHT lays out soft and smoothly like liquid silk across the water. Extremely accurate and incredibly easy to cast, this line makes anglers of all levels look like master casters. Zen Fusion Tenkara Lines can be used for both fresh and saltwater applications. They attach to the lillian cord of your tenkara rod by making a Girth Hitch. Lines are laser inscribed with size and length. We recommend using a loop-to-loop connection for your leader/tippet to avoid the possibility of you accidently snipping your line when removing tippet. Fusion LIGHT is available in 3 lengths: 15ft, 20ft and 25ft. LIGHT pairs best with Zen Zako, Suimenka, Sagi and Taka. May be considered slightly heavy on Zen Suzume by some. Will cast well with most other tenkara rod brands.

The BIG and Midweight seemed to be too heavy for my Hellbender. Even with BIG tapered side out, it was pulling down the tip of my rod. The MidWeight seemed just a touch too heavy as well. However, I loved the LIGHT! And per below the new Fusion Line Light was great.

Absolutely love the Light Fusion line from the ZT team! So easy to cast, gets my flies where I want them, but is still incredibly delicate on the cast. Happy to add this to my collection of lines!
