Tenkara Rod Madness: First Round Voting!

Let Tenkara Rod Madness Begin!

It’s time to vote for your favorite tenkara & fixed-line rods! Will the favorites carry the day, or are there some hungry underdogs looking to scrap their way to Round Two? Beats me… only you, our tenkara community will decide each rod’s fortune by voting through the Google form below, (or clicking HERE to use the form in a non-embedded format).

First Round voting in Tenkara Rod Madness will stay open until approximately 8 PM ET on Thursday, March 18th…. so vote early and often to make sure your favorite rod(s) advance! We don’t even really care what criteria you use. Personal favorites, brand loyalty, color preference, the goal here is to just have fun!

Please remember to scroll all the way to the bottom and click the “Submit” button, or else your votes will not be counted!


Not familiar with some of these rods? Don’t know what they look like? Curious why some models had strong “regular seasons?” Fear not! We’ve included some links to prominent websites below where you can learn more about them… and perhaps add one or two to your tenkara rod collection. (See full bracket HERE).
