At a time when brand collaborations are popping up everywhere, Tenkara Rod Co. announced their latest joint project with New Belgium Brewing‘s Fat Tire beer – the Fat Tire tenkara rod.
According to the press release, this rod is ideal for medium-sized creeks and rivers making it an all-around fun tenkara rod. In addition to this being a limited edition rod, the first 50 people to purchase a Fat Tire rod get a $20 dollar bill thrown in their orders for some beer!
Drew Hollenback of TRC told Tenkara Angler, “We really wanted to send out a case of beer for every order but there were too many rules and regulations around that so we figured this would be easier.”
The rod specifications are as follows:
- 12 foot fully extended
- 6:4 flex profile
- 3 ounces in weight
- Available as a rod only – Fat Tire rod, rod tube, and rod sock
- Or a full kit – rod, rod tube, and rod sock. 13 ft. furled tenkara line, 3 tenkara flies, wood line holder, 5x tippet, lifetime warranty.
Hollenback added, “It’s a 12 foot rod but with a slightly softer action and lighter weight than our Sawtooth.”
