Tenkara USA Level Line- 2.5

Availability: In stock (2)

Benefits of tenkara level lines:

Lighter weight, which allows anglers to keep the line off the water as the fly drifts on the other side of multiple currents. This provides for very good drifts.

Versatility, where an angler can cut whatever length of line is desired or join lines together. 

Economics, A spool contains 65 feet (23m), and allows you to make 4 or 5 lines, for a lower cost per line. 

Things to keep in mind: level lines require a slightly faster casting stroke, with very little pause on the back cast, and take more getting used to casting due to their light weight. Also, they do not have a pre-tied loop for girth-hitching to the rod tip. You can see how to setup a tenkara level line here.

Which level line weight should you choose?

The larger the number the heavier the level line. # 3.5 is our main recommendation for most conditions. #4.5 is the heaviest line, it performs better in windier conditions or with stiffer rods, and will be easier to cast but will sag a bit more under the rod tip. #2.5 is the lightest tenkara line we offer; it stays off the water beautifully for the best fly presentations, but it is harder to cast with, especially when there is wind or with stiff rods. 

Note: the tenkara line weights we use are not in any way related to western fly-line weights, the numbers come from an old Japanese system and are not necessarily paired with a rod.
