Tenkara Fly Fishing Rod (DISCONTINUED)

Improperly labeled Backpacking Light Hane rods with 9" contoured cork grips.

Overview

Backpacking Light released our signature Tenkara rod manufactured by TenkaraUSA called the Hane with an extended length of 9'-10" (3 m) that offers good reach for larger waters and lakeshore fishing, while remaining compact enough for fishing tight and brushy streams.

A small batch of rods in this design were mis-manufactured with incorrect TenkaraUSA graphics and name rather than the Backpacking Light logo. In lieu of the regular grip applied to the Hane rod these seconds have a 9" contoured handle. For these differences we are offering these to you our customers at a discount. The quality and craftsmanship of this rod is the same as the excellent Hane and all that is different is the logo.

These rods are labeled as "Iwana 5:5" but keep in mind when purchasing line, tippet, and accessories it should be noted that the rod you are purchasing is a Hane 7:3.

On Tip Failures and Rod Breakage

This rod was manufactured under the great care and craftsmanship of the TenkaraUSA company which has a rod-breakage percentage of under 2%. But each and every one of their rod styles has been broken in one case or another from mis-use by the customer. Keep this in mind so that you can avoid it. Please note that returns on this item will not be accepted so please make your purchase carefully and wisely. Extra tips are however available for breakage. Please take all of this into consideration before purchasing this rod. Thanks, Ryan Jordan, CEO, Backpacking Light
