A6 stands for Advanced Six. The Bamboo is not Tonkin, but Japanese Ha-chiku. A6 is developed for the small streams. Medium slow with semi parabolic action. Bend deep at the butt while fighting a fish.

Its construction is quite unique. A6 is still six face rod but not hexagonal. It rather looks like triangle rod, but it is not. Three wider faces help to trip the rod tip straight forward. Other three faces are quite narrow to contribute to give a rod maximum power.
