  • Warranty Information

    Items With 1-year Warranty Items With 6-month Warranty Items Without a Warranty
    Cork and foam line holders Tenkara rod blanks Level line
    Winn Sport 12' 6:4 tenkara rod BYO Kit and components Fluorocarbon tippet

    Winn grips (orange and blue)

    Replacement blank sections Hand tied flies
    Custom made cork handles Fly boxes Epoxy
    Hats Nippers 'Free' items
      Aluminum hardware 50% OFF 12' 7:3 tenkara rod
      Rod storage tubes Items sold 'as is'

    Warranty information specific to our BYO Kits: We warranty our BYO kit components(excluding epoxy) for 6-months from date of purchase.  If in that time you feel that any of the individual components (especially the telescopic graphite rod blank) breaks under normal usage (extending the rod properly, fishing with the proper line weight and tippet recommended by us, retracting the rod properly, etc.) we will send you a free replacement.  We do carry individual replacement sections.  PLEASE DO NOT TREAT THESE RODS LIKE THE OLD FASHIONED BAMBOO RODS THAT YOUR GRANDFATHER USED WITH HEAVY CORD FISHING LINE AS THOSE FISHING POLES ARE MUCH STRONGER AND TOLERANT OF ABUSE.  Remember, by using our recommended line(Size #3 and #4 level line) and tippet setup(5X or 6X), if you get snagged or hook a large, powerful fish, the tippet is designed to break, protecting the Tenkara fishing rod from breakage.  We cannot be reponsible if your glued components loosen or the epoxy prematurely fails because of different epoxy mixing techniques and skill levels of individual customers.  If you follow our recommendations for building your BYO Kit, you should have successful adhesion of the hardware components to the rod blank. Cork is a natural material and will darken or discolor under normal usage (Fishermen are typically proud of this natural 'aged' look).  Customizing your Tenkara fishing rod: We are not responsible for degredation of the graphite rod blank's finish if you use an incompatible product containing incompatible solvents, which may soften the factory finish or resin used in the fabrication of the rod blank.  Typically, most Acrylic, Enamal and Lacquer paints will work fine with the blanks we supply.  Damage may occur to the rod blank when using a solvent to remove (strip) off a color if done impropery.
