TenkaraBum.com and Finesse-Fishing.com are located in New York City, which is essentially locked down. Package pickup has been suspended. My neighborhood post office is closed. I go outside as little as possible because I am in an "at risk" group. TenkaraBum.com and Finesse-Fishing.com are still open, for now, but I do not know when I will mail packages again. Most international flights have been cancelled, so there is no ETA for out-of-stock items that come from Japan.

The Tenkara Gen 240 and 270  are made by Shimotsuke, the same company that makes the Kiyotaki. The rods are made in China and realistically, are cheap Chinese rods, but as kid's rods they do make sense.

I wouldn't recommend either one as a small stream rod for a serious tenkara angler, but for a kid they're just about perfect. They are light weight at just 1.5 or 1.8 ounces (without the tip plug). The grip (cork, by the way) is narrow enough to fit a kid's hand. The price is low enough to fit dad's (or granddad's) budget.
