John Geer, from Tenkara USA’s customer service team, walks you through some common problems seen on a tenkara rod, how to avoid problems while using your tenkara rod, and how to troubleshoot and fix any problems you may encounter.
Did you know your Tenkara USA rod has a lifetime warranty? We stock every part of every rod we make to allow us to take care of any problems as quickly and painlessly as possible. In the majority of cases you just need to cover our actual shipping and handling costs, $17, and we can just send you the parts you need with no need for you to mail anything back to us.
 
Tenkara USA often gets its customers back in the water within 3 days. If your rod has the Tenkara USA brand on it, we will take care of you!
