The best tenkara level line anywhere: very little memory right out of the spool, the right stiffness for casting, and most importantly VERY HIGH VISIBILITY!
The best tenkara level line anywhere: very little memory right out of the spool, the right stiffness for casting, and most importantly VERY HIGH VISIBILITY! This is the preferred line used by Dr. Hisao Ishigaki, leading tenkara authority in Japan and developed exclusively for Tenkara USA. Which line to choose? We recommend the 4.5 Orange Level Line for those new to tenkara. The 4.5 level line will be the easiest to cast and get used to. With more experience, we advise trying the lighter (3.5 and eventually 2.5 lines). As for the color, it is slightly based on personal preference. The orange will typically be more visible in a higher range of conditions, but the pink will stand out better against warm "orange-like" backgrounds. Further, many people have had good experiences combining the two lines for increased visibility at all times. Our tenkara level line was specifically formulated for tenkara and is available exclusively through Tenkara USA and its dealers. 20meter (65ft) spools allow you to cut 4 or 5 lines out of one spool. For example, cut one that is 12ft long, one that is 18ft for larger waters. Traditional Lines or Level Lines? We like to recommend you try both the traditional lines and level line as you may quickly find a preference for one of them. Length: 20 meters (65.6ft)
