The Daiwa Sagiri are wonderfully light, delightfully soft, smooth casting seiryu rods. In Japan they would be used primarily to catch Japanese Dace and Pale Chubs (Oikawa) in gentle streams. In the US most people use the Sagiri to catch trout in mountain streams as well as sunfish in ponds and warmwater streams. Their actions and penny ratings make the 39 and 44 quite suitable for tenkara fishing. The 54 is better suited to keiryu fishing for modest fish.
