The best tenkara level line anywhere: very little memory right out of the spool, the right stiffness for casting, and most importantly VERY HIGH VISIBILITY! This is the preferred line used by Dr. Hisao Ishigaki, leading tenkara authority in Japan and developed exclusively for Tenkara USA.
Which line to choose?
TO KEEP IT SIMPLE: Just get the Orange 3.5.
The smaller the number the lighter the line is. So, a 2.5 level line is lighter than the 4.5. What this translates to: The lighter the line the easier it is to keep off the water, but the more challenging it is to cast. The heavier lines will be easier to cast. Additionally, the heavier lines will pair better with the stiffer rods, so the 4.5 lines are recommended for the Yamame and Amago rods.
As for the color, it is slightly based on personal preference. The orange will typically be more visible in a higher range of conditions, but the pink will stand out better against warm "orange-like" backgrounds. Further, many people have had good experiences combining the two lines for increased visibility at all times.
Our tenkara level line was specifically formulated for tenkara and is available exclusively through Tenkara USA and its dealers.
20meter (65ft) spools allow you to cut 4 or 5 lines out of one spool. For example, cut one that is 12ft long, one that is 18ft for larger waters.
