This is an exclusive rod we use out on the Drill Ship we fish off in the Gulf of Mexico. Super strong and breaks down to fit on helicopters.
ProsBreaks down small. Super strong and can handle 100# braid line. The perfect rod!

I have five of these now. Two conventional models and three spinning models. I cast and troll with them. I use them from shore to the canyons. I have caught everything from snagging moss bunker to a 76 lb wahoo with this rod. I fish them hard and they hold up.
ProsGrips, eyes, butt, price, durability.
ConsOn my spinners the, the seats for the reel loosen up from time to time.

Great King Fish Rod...
August 21, 2016
Have the MH.ros with 40 lb mono with an Okuma reel..great match. Caught two Big Kings down in Port Aransas last week.One came in at 11 lbs the other 9 lbs.Rods look light but have the back bone to tame these Tigers of the Sea... L
August 13, 2016
So far only used it twice hooked on to a nice size bluefin 50+ lbs and the rod responded well. Good feel and a lot of back bone
I like this Boat Rod
July 31, 2016
I bought this a few months ago for a California fishing trip. Got to use it last week and though I didn't go out for tuna or Yellowtail (my freezer is full) I wished I had. It adapted very well to a smaller reel and lighter tackle--I had to give the bass away! I'd give it five stars but alas no Yellowfin!
Pros- Strong and adaptable - Looks good though really not important to me
ConsI'm used to keepers and this didn't have one

Snapped on a football sized yellowfin tuna
July 26, 2016
This rod snapped in two on a football sized tuna down in East Cape Baja Cali Mexico. I know tuna are strong, but dang I was hoping that this rod would do a little better then that. I did not see the fish that was hooked and it possible that the fish was bigger then all the other ones that were caught that day. But I doubt that it was. None of the fish caught were more than 10-15lbs.
ProsHard to say due to it snapped on the 2nd fish that was hooked.
ConsDid not hold up and snapped on a 10-15lb tuna.
It's a Two Piece Rod
June 30, 2016
Didn't realize this is a two piece rod. Not XX. Should be X. Foam butt protector is a joke. Quality OK. Should be about $20.00 less
ProsNice action, heavy
June 11, 2016
I have a very bad experience with this Rod. On my first use the Rod broke 17" from the end of the Rod. To further complicate matter Tsunami will not answer my emails to request replacement. PLEASE NO NOT BUY THIS ROD! Customer service ???
Merchant Response:Send it back to us and we'll replace it.
ProsNothing good to say about this product or company

I do not have the $ to own a millions rods and have been using this rod for the past 3 seasons on party boats for fluke, porgies, blackfish and many other species..in a pinch i have used up to 6 oz's jigging with it no problem but do not like to go over that.

I purchased 2 of these rods to use for vertical jigging in 200-600 ft of water. The performance was excellent, couldn't of asked for a better rod. Match that with the price and you have one of the best rods on the market today. Will definitely be buying a couple more of these.
ProsLight weight and great flexibility.
Great for the price!
January 9, 2016
This rod looks and feels like much more expensive rods. Solid construction, good action, quality components. And so far it seems to catch fish!
ConsGood look, good feel, God price
Over the top
December 12, 2015
It is amazing how great the quality of this rod is for the money.
ProsStrong, light, great build quality for the money.
ConsNot quite as good as a Shimano, but if you are on a budget it is great!
August 23, 2015
Love the diamond grips. Great action for vertical jigging and strong enough to handle big amber jack.
ProsStrong, durable, great price.
ConsCover for gimbal comes off to easy.
surprise look what I caught
August 8, 2015
I allowed a friend to use this rod on his two fishing trip. When he returned the caught two yellow tail too. Weight approx. 30lbs. He ended up buy that rod from me.
Gulf of Mexico 30mi. off Ms.
great rod for taking offshore on helicopter.
July 15, 2015
This is the second one of these rods. Bought the first to take offshore to my platform on the helicopter since it breaks down. Matched it with the new Penn 10500. Have caught blacking to 40 pound no problem. That's from 60 feet up on the platform Got the second for my trip to the keys for the wife to use much easier for her to use a spinning reel. Rod is good to 150 class line have no doubt it will land what ever she hooks.
ProsWas the only choice for a two piece rod for me since unlike most rods that are pieced in the rod blank itself these go together in the handle.
ConsOn my second rod that I just received fit of rod to handle would not seat all the way had to spend 30 minutes sanding it to get correct fit but still would recommend it.

Purchased rod to troll 9er umbrella rigs with for striped bass. Have not been disappointed. 2-8oz rating should be more of a 3.5-8 oz rating

Great inshore whip

Light weight rod with some backbone. I managed to bottom fish it for tautog and it handled them quite well, not the typical drop and wait but a slow cross current retrieve with a jig head and whole crab got the fish to bite.

A Beautiful Rod!
January 14, 2015
Honestly, I haven't used it yet. I intend to use it in May on Goliath grouper and sharks in Florida. It's so light that I'm kind of afraid to use it on these fish, but the reviews state it's an amazingly strong Rod for its weight.
2 Questions & 2 Answers
from New Jersey asked:
November 8, 2016
Does this rod have a trigger for jigging? Is it similar to the Tsunami TSAWBC J701XH Air Wave rod? I don't see a trigger in the picture. They look like spinning rods pictured.
The Tsunami TSTBC-J701XH Trophy Jigging Rod does not have a trigger. This rod is still meant to be used with casting reels.

Has anybody used this rod with an Avet HX 5/2 to fish for tuna? Thanks
Nigel, Yes I have used this reel for Tuna and it is Excellent, It has all the drag and line capacity you need for that type of fishing, We use them for trolling or chunking and they perform every time.
