"Working with the good folks at Tenkara on a collection of items named after one of our favorite mountain ranges in the US almost seems as if it was predestined. Turns out, they're as enamored with Idaho's famed Sawtooths as we are. Not only is that zone the origin of our friendship with the Tenkara crew, but their best-selling rod design - and the one we wanted to use the most - already happens to be called the Sawtooth. So it only seemed fitting to keep the great name, while working together on a beautiful co-branded finish on the rod, tube, and sock. The Sawtooth rod: The Sawtooth is Tenkara Rod Co.'s more playful rod. You might have a six inch rainbow on the line but it feels like you are wrestling a tuna! Although this rod is ideal for fish in the 6-18 inch range, landing larger fish is doable as well. The 5:5 action means that it flexes a little more than a 6:4. Our tenkara rods are ultra light weight and the swivel tips included on our tenkara rods also help keep your line from getting tangled. This rod is finished with a custom co-branded graphic that won't disappoint.
