The Katana furled line is the ultimate in light furled Tenkara lines, the thinnest furled line we offer. The unique 3rd leg furl makes the line very round in circumference which gives it a better transfer of energy when casting, even at a thinner line diameter.
The lightness of this line is great for a gentle presentation on the water and casts well even with softer Tenkara rods. I would say this line is the best choice for un-weighted flies and even those who favor level line will like this furled line. I would not use this Katana line for casting weighted flies or larger flies.
The Katana line has a slight “weight forward” design which makes it very easy to cast accurately, even at longer lengths such as 16 to 20 feet. That is great for seasoned Tenkara anglers and even better for those just starting out in Tenkara.
Because this line is so thin, we recommend the solid hi-vis orange or chartreuse color so you can see it.
Choose the Light Line Weight for soft rods and Medium Line Weight for stiffer rods.
