Completed making my 50cm four-piece tanago rod and rod case at last. Hopefully the weather will clear up (we are in the middle of the Japanese rainy season now) soon so I can give it a test at Teganuma.
The rod laid out next to its case. The black rod tip fits inside the rod butt section and all three remaining pieces of the rod fit inside the case nice and snugly.
Another view of the case, with its lid on. In a couple of years the lacquer will come up clearer and brighter, but as fishing tackle it is ready to use now!
