Ever since Teton Tenkara's Tom Davis teased an upcoming small stream rod he co-designed with Brent Auger of DRAGONtail Tenkara, many fans of "bluelining" for trout have just been waiting for the day to pull the trigger on a new tenkara rod purchase.
EDITOR'S NOTE: The Kickstarter has ended and the Mizuchi can now be purchased directly through DRAGONtail Tenkara HERE.
Well, wait no longer. The Mizuchi zx340 zoom rod is now available for pre-sale. This rod is unique in the fact that it is a 3-way zoom rod that in explanation, not only addresses three small stream lengths (240cm, 290cm, and 340cm), but also fishes with an appropriate flex profile at each.
If you act quickly, you can get one of these rods at an "Early Bird" price well below the eventual retail price of $160. As of writing this article, this rod had raised more than $3000 toward the $8000 funding goal, so it appears it's well on it's way to production.
