I was given this rod as a gift on my trip to visit Yuzo Sebata, it was quite a surprise to say the least. It is interesting to me that it is a Sakura rod from a long time ago.
てんから竿金剛 is the name of the rod. "Tenkara-sao Kongo" The very first model of graphite yarn was used for the rod. It was made in 1980s'.
It is slow Seki Rei kind of action.
1980 Price was 38000yen.
