Re: TFO tenkara.....
I never cast the TFO Tenkara rod, but I did talk to TJ or CJ from Tenkara USA. He told me that the TFO Tenkara was stiffer and made to cast larger flies.
Well, I bought a Tenkara USA Amago on that same day and very happy about it.
BEWARE...Once you switched, you can't switch back. :
