The best level lines are produced with the fluorocarbon material with the density 1.78. The difference in suppleness and memory is very small; the main difference is the color and visibility. The line visibility is very important for tenkara fishing. Different colors give you the variety of the opportunities to monitor your line’s position in the air and against the background of the water and the banks.

Yamatoyo Tenkara Line>> (4) is also transparent, but very bright fluorescent yellow, that makes it the best to be used in the twilight and under the canopies at overgrown streams.
