PRESS RELEASE: Announcing the New DRAGONtail Mutant zx380 Zoom Tenkara Rod
It’s the Ultimate 3-Length Full-Flex Soft Action Tenkara Fishing Rod coming this September from DRAGONtail Tenkara, seriously this is an awesome level line focused tenkara rod. This rod has been many years in development and it’s design has been influenced greatly by the Tenkara community conversations. We are so excited to have the final prototype and move on to production and promotion of this rod.
The Mutant zx380 rod covers 3 very popular sizes in one tenkara rod: 380cm (12.5ft), 350cm (11.5ft), and 315cm (10.3ft). This gives you the option to fish the right length in the most fishing situations. We feel the casting action in all three of the rod’s zoom lengths is excellent.
The focus of the design of the Mutant zx380 rod is for premium light level line casting and you will find that it does this extremely well in every zoom length. It’s soft 6:4 Full-Flex casting action is perfect for Light Level Lines to medium weight furled or tapered lines.
This rod is designed for targeting small to medium sized trout in creeks, streams, or small rivers. That does not mean you can’t use outside of those parameters if you so desire, have fun doing what you like. Although if you want to target big fish then this is probably not the tenkara rod for you.
