I have a Tenkara USA Rhodo. The end cap (for the tip) fits somewhat loose, and I've lost the original and the spare.
Am I correct in reading that the replacement is $10 each plus shipping? Is this normal for tenkara rods?

Are there generic replacements out there?

I bought one of these things; they work great and I don't think I will lose it:

Fuji Rod Caps

I came across a website in which people showed off rod caps that they had made themselves out of various materials, but I can't find it now. A wine cork and some sandpaper (or better yet, a lathe) would solve the problem.

Just new to the forum, so I'm not sure this has been addressed yet but the 10 dollars should be for a set. Bottom and top if I remember correctly. I have the same rod and have dealt with TUSA customer service a few times; John is great by the way. They really do a great job of taking care of issues.

I just bought a rod with a universal cap which is infinitely superior to any sort of plug. I ordered more in different sizes (so not precisely "universal") for all my rods. $12.99 for two on Amazon.
