The smaller the number the lighter the line is. So, a 2.5 level line is lighter than the 4.5. What this translates to: The lighter the line the easier it is to keep off the water, but the more challenging it is to cast. The heavier lines will be easier to cast. Additionally, the heavier lines will pair better with the stiffer rods, so the 4.5 lines are recommended for the Yamame and Amago rods.
As for the color, it is slightly based on personal preference. The orange will typically be more visible in a higher range of conditions, but the pink will stand out better against warm "orange-like" backgrounds. Further, many people have had good experiences combining the two lines for increased visibility at all times.
Our tenkara level line was specifically formulated for tenkara and is available exclusively through Tenkara USA and its dealers.
20 meter (65ft) spools allow you to cut 4 or 5 lines out of one spool. For example, cut one that is 12ft long and one that is 18ft for larger waters, among others.
- Little memory and perfect stiffness
- Lighter line means tougher casting, but better float above the water
- 2.5: lightest, 4.5: heaviest
- Orange provides high overall visibility, pink stands out better against fall-like orange colors
- Pair the higher-weight lines with stiffer rods for greater efficiency (such as the Amago or Yamame)
