9.6 the perfect rod for light plugging
July 23, 2019
I originally ordered this rod from another vendor and it arrived in a flimsy carton. First cast with a 1.5 oz Hopkins and the tip snapped. I have a hunch that it was damaged during transport and it wasn't a manufacture's defect. Since I was on my way to Nantucket, I didn't want to chance it and re-ordered from Tackle Direct. It arrived on the island in a very rigid tube in pristine condition. Hats off to Tackle Direct for the care they take in packaging.

I fished with it extensively for a week and love it. Only on a few occasions when bluefish were hitting further out did I sort of wish I'd opted for the 11' 2" but the trade off is comfort. I cast for hours and the 9' 6" was just about perfect and I never got fatigued. The 'sweet spot' is probably around 2 ounces but I was mostly throwing bombers, sluggos, and small Hopkins in the 1.5 ounce range and it loaded just fine. As for the fish, I didn't get a chance to test it against anything huge but it was definitely up to the task with stripers and blues in the 10-13 lb range. The right amount of responsiveness, sensitivity, and muscle.

I've read some reviews that complain about the thinness of the rod, but I didn't find it to be an issue at all. I think the very thin rubber grip (almost a sleeve) was perfectly comfortable and didn't dull the sensitivity when a curious bass would bump my offering.

I have quite a few rods including a G Loomis, a Tica Dolphin, and a bunch of longer/heavier rods from St Croix that I use for heavier plugs and bait. I didn't touch any of them on this trip. For the cost, I'd be hard pressed to think of a better option.

Tsunami 9’ 6”! Elite surfcast cast trials
July 18, 2019
Good quality rod .
Build quality ::10
Weight : moderately light
Action : stiffer than expected
Casting: (w30 lb cast king braid) strong force gives better results, heavier weights give better distances,
I will try again with 30 lb power Pro line.
Plugs tried: Diawa SP minnow 1.25 oz, 7†minnow long , yo Zuri mag darter

Will be using bucktail jigs in next test

I’ve not landed anything yet so I can only refer to videos by the guys at surf casters journal on the web.

ProsBuild quality 2 piece construction - fits inside my Mini Cooper! Nice grips Rugged construction Good value$
ConsStiffness: more than expected by this Newbury Weight: again,more than expected coming from fly fishing it seems casting rods are overbuilt compared to top of the line fly rods ... take that with a grain of salt

Excellent Rod 9’6”
June 2, 2019
I wanted to test this rod before I write my review...
Before that, I just want to say Kudos to tackle direct for the hassle free shipping, the rod was well packaged, couldn’t be happier... 9
I took the rod this morning to fish for some blues... the rod handled a gator blue with ease
For a 2 piece rod with a thin diameter, it has a lot of backbone..
it is light weight, sensitive and gives you the bang for your buck.
At first I was hesitant to purchase this because of the 70/30 split, but after repetitive contemplation, I pulled the trigger and purchased 1.
Couldn’t be happier.
ConsI want another 1

I got this rod for tossing shads and bucktails in the inlets and it does the job fantasticly. only thing I do not care for is the butt cap is a littler larger than I like so it does not fit the D-rin I attach to my belt, otherwise great stick.

932XH Pretty beefy
January 10, 2019
So far I've only had it out about a half a dozen times so my experience with it is limited.

But I have it paired with a Penn Spinfisher vi 5500 which size and balance wise seems to be a good match.

Models TSAWESS932XH, TSAWESS1002XH, TSAWESS1142XH are 50/50 split ferrule rods.

^ Not the case on the one I received, (mine is 70/30) Must be a new model or a revamp. 70/30 is what I wanted anyway, so wont harp on it.

It is a very stout rod for a 9 footer. I bought it thinking it would be a good compromise between soaking bait and tossing lures. Generally speaking it isn't It's difficult finding lures that will actually load out a rod this beefy at a good price point, that or the ones you do find are huge or have huge hooks seeing they're 3-4 oz, that or they won't swim or act natural because they are so heavy.

As far as a set and soak rod though it will load and cast with as little as 2 oz+ some live or frozen mullet, especially on a dropper where all your weight or the bulk of it is at the terminal end of your line.

There could be more guides as well the ones that are on it are great just not enough of them while I believe they are Fuji K guides they're not in a "concept" layout. (8 or more with most of them close together and biased toward the tip of the rod {the ones toward the tip being relatively tiny}).

All in all it is a good caster with a long cast reel and proper line size as well as rig weight even an average person like me should be able to at least throw it 150 yards with minimal effort.

If you plan on fishing lures most of the time get a lighter rod, or a noodle, or even a steelhead rod.
ProsFast action backbone 70/30 split
ConsAlmost too heavy actioned for its size

Great Rod for up to 3 oz.

Light rod with nice action
November 8, 2018
I spent a lot of time looking for just the right rod. I came upon this rod from reviews on youtude. I was looking at this and a couple other brands. I finally saw this rod at a local fishing expo. At first I thought it was going to be too delicate. As it goes, I chose the Tsunami Airwave Elite 9'6 rod. I paired this rod with the Penn Slammer III 6500 reel.

My first use of the rod was casting a 2oz diamond jig. I was very happy with the rod from the very first cast. Felt effortless. Fished for about an hour until the jig got snagged in a muscle bed. Walked back and forth pulling trying to get it unsnagged until I gave up and cut the line.
ProsVery light nice action effortless to cast reasonably priced

I received the answer from tackle direct for my previous question of whether to buy the lamiglas insane serf series 10' MH or one of these rods. They advised me to get the lamiglas but, I have heard rumors of the warranty being trash on a lamiglases part, while tsunami has the excellent warranty. So if I do buy the lamiglas will tackle Direct replace it or will I have to go through lamiglas? Also if I happen to break the lamiglas after one year and it is because of the rods defect will I still be able to replace it?

Our return is a 30 day un-used policy. Any broken rod within that one year warranty would need to be covered by the manufacture. Lamiglas and Tsunami equally have great warranties.

Looking at the Tsunami Airwave Elite.  I'd pair with a Diawa BG4000.   Primary use will be for plugging and tossing lighter plastics (1-3 oz) from the sand on Nantucket.  I have a wide assortment of surf rods but most are too heavy for all-day casting. 

I'm looking for a surf rod that is less fatiguing and has decent 'action' to make catching schoolie stripers and blues a bit more fun.    At the same time, I'd like to be able to drift the occasional eel (without added weight).

Any suggestions?
