Sakura Tenkara Sao Kongo

Sakura early Graphite “Bamboo” Tenkara Rod

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.

In-Stick Construction
