Tenkara Rod Grip Pads

Posted by Tenkara Flyfish on September 29, 2010 at 5:35 PM

One needs to be particularly careful when closing a Tenkara rod after a day astream.  The vast majority of Tenkara rods are broken while collapsing the rod.  Cold, wet, tired hands don't help.  It helps immensely to be able to get a good,firm grip on the rod, in order to be able to apply precise and controlled force while closing the rod.  A good way to get a firm grip is to use a rubber grip pad. 

One can use a rubber jar opener, or a piece of rubberized drawer liner.
