The TRY 360 has been updated. It still features the same great rod blank but now the purple trim on the segments is gone and the color is overall darker than the previous version. The grip has also been updated to feature rugged rubberized cork on the top and bottom.
The TRY 360 is a good choice for an all around rod. It has a slightly softer action compared to the 330 and 390. It’s 12-ft length gives you considerably more reach than the 10-ft TRY 330 – but it is only a few grams heavier – so balance remains excellent. The 360 makes a nice rod for picking the pockets and fishing the longer runs of that tumbling mountain stream.
As with all the TRY rods, the 360 has a stiffer tip that transfers the casting force to the mid section of the rod. The result is a full-flex, but crisp casting rod with plenty of feel – you’ll feel the cast – but you won’t have trouble picking the fly and line up from the water. The TRY 360 is designed as a level line rod – and it excels at casting level lines, with ease and feel.
Of course the TRY 360 tenkara rod is aimed primarily at the trout angler. But it will feel at home targeting panfish in your local pond or warm water stream.
TRY 360 Reviews
“As for performance … A quick, compact flick of the wrist dropped cast after cast into the desired pocket or riffle on command.” – Mike Agneta of Troutrageous!
Read the review of the TRY 360 at Tenkara Talk – note that Jason reviewed a previous version of the rod with different cosmetics and grip, but the same blank.

“As expected from the initial impression, the rod is balanced wonderfully … No arm fatigue is noticed after many hours of fishing. Targeting is precise; the tip action is crisp but not stiff. Throwing the kebari into small plunge pools or under overhanging limbs was easy accomplished.” – Tom Davis, Teton Tenkara
