With several years of design experience under the belt and feedback from users, Tenkara has achieved what they set out to do: give you a rod that is super light-weight, durable, versatile and feels very precise.
The Sato has two patent pending features:
Triple-zoom: this allows you to use the rod at three different lengths - 10'8", 11'10", and 12'9" (330, 360, 390 cm). The average length for a tenkara rod is 12 ft long, Tenkara likes to recommend rods that are closer to 13 ft, yet many people are intimidated by such long lengths for rods intended for smaller streams. So, they felt a rod with the 3 most common lengths would be an easy choice: short to ease you into tenkara, long to give you a taste of the advantages presented by a long tenkara rod.
Keep Your Plug system (patent pending): After hearing that no one has ever been able to keep their tenkara rod plug for longer than a year we decided we should find a solution for you to never lose your plug again. Tenkara designed the “Keep Your Plug” system so that next time you go fishing, you can remove the plug from the top end of your rod and insert it into the hole at the bottom of your rod. The Sato will come with two plugs on the rod; please leave one at home in case you ever need it.
ACTION: We're phasing out the Tenkara rod index system. We have decided that we will make the best tenkara rods around and the flex of a tenkara rod is not a crucial aspect of selecting a tenkara rod. If you have been tenkara fishing for sometime and want a frame of reference, the Sato is a medium action rod.
