The rod plugs that come with Tenkara rods are like the socks of the angling world. Some stay a perfect pair for life. Others disappear mysteriously without explanation. If that happens these are the perfect replacement to keep your rod safe and sound. In fact, many anglers, including the team here at TAO, use them right from the start. The factory rod plugs fit inside the rod.This means the line has to be detached from the lillian when they are installed. However the caps fit over the rods. As a result the line may be kept attached without any problems.
These caps have protective padding on the inside so not to scuff the rod tip. Once installed, they are very secure with little chance of falling off while on your Tenkara adventures.
