Line length for Sato

Postby craigcox » Wed Feb 20, 2019 12:56 pm

Hello, just received my first tenkara rod, the Sato and am now more anxious for spring than before. Sorry if this has been asked but search gave me nothing. What length should I cut my level line to, given that the Sato is a zoom rod? 11? 12? 13? Thanks in advance

Hi Craig, I like to use a 12' Level Line with 3' of 5X Tippet.

Therefore average is rod length of main line, 3 to 4' of Tippet, then your fly.

You can use shorter or longer too depending on your needs.
