Mine arrived this morning missing the following:
-the 5x tippet
Other than that, I received a 13ft line instead of a 10.5ft line. I would not mind so much but I just ordered a 13ft line thinking I was getting a 10.5ft line! The rod looks decent, there is a small defect in the finish near the end of the second section but I can live with it. The line spool has a cool vintage appeal, not sure if it will work as well as the foam style but time will tell. I think the packaging of the accessories is smart and enviromentally friendly, glad to see this from an outdoor product company. There is however, a strong petroleum smell from the rod sock which reeks of Chinese manufacturing! It's like that smell when you walk into a Harbor Freight store! LOL All in all, I'm very excited about giving this style fishing a try . This will certainly be easier to pack into the backcountry. I usually pack a 7ft 4-piece 0-weight western fly rod which breaks down to about the same size of the Tenkara, but not carrying a reel with 90ft of flyline will be a nice weight reduction. I hope MassDrop will do right by everyone who did not get everything that was promised, I personally would like to exchange the 13ft line for the promised 10.5ft line and get my 5x tippet spool. On another note, let's all make a resolution to put down our phones, strike up a conversation with a stranger next time you're waiting at a doctors office or at the Metro station and most importantly GET OUTDOORS!

When I spoke with TRC they seemed kinda annoyed that massdrop advertised the wrong line length on the drop. All of the Teton packages ship with 13 from TRC (says so on their site anyway). The post was incorrect though. Talk to TRC they'll take care of you
