The first time I fished the 44 I was keiryu fishing rather than tenkara fishing, and found the ability to fish the rod at three lengths to be very handy indeed. I probably fished it a bit more at 4 meters than 3.6 or 4.4, but I definitely used all three lengths. For a moderately small stream, the 3.6, 4.0 and 4.4 meter lengths proved to be ideal. There were very few spots where I would have wanted a shorter rod, and none where I wanted a longer rod. For a small stream keiryu rod, the Suntech Field Master 44 is very nice. (That is, after all, what it was made for.)
