Tenkara rod breakages are never fun. Luckily it is generally very easy to prevent tenkara rods from breaking, and it is even easier to fix tenkara rods.
In this episode of the Tenkara Cast I talk to several customers about their experiences breaking tenkara rods and how they got their tenkara rods repaired. I also chat with TJ and John, who handle customer service and repairs at Tenkara USA about the most common causes of rod breakages and how to prevent and fix those breakages.
