You get more than you pay for

I waited until the last minute to order, but this made my trip!!!!

Great Value for Money

This is a remarkable small stream tenkara rod! It is soft-tipped but with enough backbone to snag larger trout in brushy streams where longer rods would be nearly impossible to cast. This rod compares favorably with rods that cost double the price. I have compared it to a $265 rod I own and can discover very little difference between it and the Wild Water Shorty! I don't know how the company did it, but they really hit the magic formula for small creeks with this one. Absolutely fantastic!

Well, it's always said in tenkara circles that if you want a really GOOD rod, you have to pay at least a couple of hundred dollars for a Japanese product, and I've found that to be pretty much true--until I pulled this rod out of its packing and case and flipped it around a few times...I couldn't believe it! this is a short rod with just the right amount of backbone, but nevertheless quite flexible for excellent casting. It is so close to a $300.00 rod I bought a while ago that I can hardly tell them apart--except that, if anything, the Wild Water Shorty cast slightly better. My eyes and arm almost refused to believe it! I'm a small mountain stream 3" brookie sort of guy, and you will know that in the Appalachian mountains headwaters streams that mean lots of brush. You're not going to use a 10 or 12 foot rod here. And at its shortest length, the Shorty really isn't as long as its advertised length. It's really 6' 9" instead of 7', which is good. That missing 3 inches can actually help. I can't wait to get this rod out on a stream in May! And I will be spreading the word everywhere. You don't have to pay $300.00 for a great short rod! Get the Shorty kit for $112.00 and you will be thrilled!
