Strooan Tenkara Rod
Strooan is a Manx word that means "stream". The Esoteric Tackle Strooan is a triple zoom tenkara rod designed with the European and UK market.
Unlike other zoom rods on the market the Strooan has reasonable differences between it's lengths but still performs brilliantly at all of them.
365cm (12') - 325cm (10'8") - 285cm (9' 4") *
At the tip end is a swivel to reduce the twisting action some casts can put into a line. The handle is a firm EVA with a pommel end which is comfortable in cold weather, unlike Tenkara rods with metal ends.
The action of the Strooan is different to other rods in the Esoteric Tackle range. The tip is more progressive rather then the very flexible tips of our other rods. The flexibility in the rod is 6:4 but it feels a little stiffer because of the difference in the tip. There is no wobbling about after a cast.
The rod is very light at 83g or 2.9ozs. Very light and perfectly balanced. The recovery of the rod is positive. That is to say if you are using weighted patterns it will handle them without being overpowered.
Unweighted patterns are handled with ease. The rod is at home casting a #2 line as it is a #4.5. Dry flies or 2.9mm tungsten bead nymphs. It will cast them for a perfect presentation.
The Strooan comes with a spare tip set in a separate compartment of the bag protected with a plastic tube.
