The HELLbender is a great Tenkara rod for those chasing bigger fish when you don’t want to cast a very heavy rod or a super long rod. The Starter kit gives you everything you need to fish Tenkara (a 13.5′ Bushi Furled Tenkara Line, foam line holder, spool of tippet, and 3 flies). The 13ft length gives you good leverage and the 7:3 action backbone to control the fish. We made this rod with a higher grade of carbon fiber to keep the weight down but still keep the rod strong. I would recommend this rod for Tenkara anglers who fish waters with decent size bass or trout in the 16in – 22in or even bigger if you have the skillz for it. This rod is rated for tippet size up to 3x, I generally use 4x tippet most of the time with it and I recommend you use 4x until you get some big fish experience. The HELLbender is a Zoom Rod that fishes at both 13 feet or 11 feet. This allows you to use this rod on smaller or tighter streams as well as the big water areas. This is a also great rod for casting weighted flies & nymphs. It is also a great rod for getting started with Tenkara if you want a rod that can handle bigger fish but still great for the small fish as well. The matte black color keeps the rod from reflecting the sun and possibly alerting the fish of your presence. Despite being matte black, this rod is very appealing to the eyes and has a quality finish. Collapsed rod length: 24 inches
BUILT FOR BIGGER FISH – The HELLbender Tenkara Rod is the tenkara rod to use on streams with decent bass, fat rainbows, brown trout, or other lunkers in the 16-22 in range. The HELLbender uses the highest grade IM 12 carbon graphite, making it a very strong yet lightweight fly fishing rod with 7:3 action.
COMPLETE STARTER PACKAGE – Includes everything you need to start tenkara fly fishing: 3 soft hackle tenkara flies, ultra-premium American made furled Moonlit line, tippet, an EVA foam line holder, storage tube, and rod sock.
SET UP IN UNDER 3 MINUTES – Tenkara fly fishing is all about simplicity. With no reel, you can rig up quickly and hit the water. No need for tons of expensive fly fishing gear.
ADVANCED ZOOM OPTION – The HELLbender Tenkara Rod features a telescopic zoom function allowing anglers to fly fish on both narrow streams and in big water. The tenkara zoom range is 13 to 11.3 ft.
BACKPACKER FISHING FRIENDLY – The HELLbender Tenkara Rod collapses to 24 in and weighs only 3.4 oz, which makes it easy and simple to fit into your backpack for fishing the backcountry, or to use as an all-purpose travel fly fishing rod.
