OK everyone, if you haven’t already heard (and you probably have) now’s the time to get those “Early Bird” Kickstarter discounts! The DRAGONtail Mutant zx380 tenkara rod is now live on Kickstarter. If you’re interested in a longer 3-way zoom rod that is also full of flex and ideal for casting level line… Get over and support this campaign while the getting is still good.
(Editor’s Note: While the Kickstarter has ended, the Mutant is available at DRAGONtail’s website HERE)
Tom Davis (Teton Tenkara) also reviewed and shared some video of the rod in action recently. I must say that the Mutant looks like one pretty sweet casting rod. I’m certain this Kickstarter will be funded in no time!
