Riverworks Customs Backcountry 8' Concept Tenkara Rod
One of our favorite concept Tenkara rods. This is a 8' (244CM) rod perfect for small, brush lined streams in the high country. The grip is comprised of a super high density EVA Foam (body) in the new Dark Earth Camo pattern, and it has composite cork end pieces in a dark blend color. The blank is from the Tenkara Customs shop (see manufacturer ratings below) and is a very nice little blank. The guys at Tenkara Customs have a real winner with this blank. It performs beautifully on the blue lines but has some backbone as well, just in case it ever needs to move to larger streams. We have rated it at a 5X Tippet Rating, but the rod performs best with 6X or lighter tippet material. Very nice parabolic flex profile adds to the flavor of this blank and it is outfitted with a matte black finish. We added a brand new Riverworks Customs brookie logo and also adorned the rod with a blue/grey thread accent on the nose. Comes with a very functional woodgrain nose cap and a very durable butt cap that can withstand any punishment the backcountry can dish out. It is a bit heavier than other small stream rods on the market, but the beefy hardware is worth the extra weight when you are out in the wilds. Comes with a basic nylon rod bag and the Riverworks square poly tube.
