Kaida zx320 Tenkara Pack Rod


  • Short Collapsed Length that will fit in a common backpack, motorcycle compartments, small enough to strap on bike frames, or fit in your airplane carry on bag. Small enough you can easily bring it with you anywhere you go.

  • Multi-Length Zoom Rod so you fish it fully extended in open casting areas or zoom it down one length when casting area is overgrown and tight. It casts awesome in both lengths. 

  • Medium-Soft Action With A Hint Of Fiberglass. Most tenkara pack rods are stiff due to so many sections, so we added just the right amount of glass in certain sections to make our pack rod cast like a dream.

  • Light Weight so you can cast it all day with very little fatigue and save weight in your ultra-light backpack. 

  • IT IS FUN! We have taken this rod to a few fly fishing expos and everyone just loves casting it. Although it will handle a decent sized fish, it is just the right action to make the little mountain trout plenty of fun to catch. 


  • This rod will work great with light level lines (size 3 or 3.5 work best), most furled lines, tapered lines, and our light PVC line. Casting is effortless with this rod. The action would be considered a 6:4. It is softer than the popular Mizuchi rod but not near as soft as the fiberglass hybrid FoxFIRE rod.

  • This rod will cast most flies from weightless to bead head nymphs. It is probably not a great rod for nymphing due to its softer action, the Mizuchi rod would be better for that. It is however excellent for soft presentation of weightless flies and is a hoot on smaller fish while still handling a little bigger fish just fine.
