I own both. If I just was interested in the thought of Tenkara, the Foutainhead would be my choice, and one I would be happy with.

With that being said, the Tenkara USA offering is nicer. Both will get the job done, and meet expectations.

Coming from a guy who has both offerings, I will admit that there is a difference in quality, that is also reflected in the price.

The fountainhead is still a great buy that I often recommend......The Iwana, costs a bit more, and is bit nicer, but not in the same relationship to its cost.
