I agree.

Rather than revolutionary, it is evolutionary. Material science has allowed rod makers to create longer and lighter rods which have benefited not only tenkara, but also tradition one handed fly rods and two handed spey rods.

It is the same continuos improvement process that has allowed for thinner and stronger leaders, fluorocarbon leaders, super lines, etc.
