best rod brand out there for the price
They are literally manufactured around the corner from where i live ( less than 5 miles) in Mahwah NJ and are truly fantastic. I would recommend this company to anyone, plain and simple. This is my current pole from bottom fishing to Mahi Mahi and even smaller sharks. I even caught a 300+lb shark on my tsunami reel rated for 40 lb and my tsunami pole rated for 80-100 pound line in a chum slick 10 ft from the boat and wrenched him in. My father went out and bought a $300 custom rod years back for it's lightness and sensitivity, but when i handed him my rod to hold so i could get a sandwich, he he wouldn't give it back and went out and bought one of these. The thing is so sensitive you can literally feel the types of ocean floor terrain you are on, and distinguish bites from that, and also it is light as a feather.
ProsWell worth the money. Very sensitive. Light as a feather. Strong poles. Very good looking.
ConsAbsolutely none. Best rod i have ever used, and i have used a lot!

5-stars for price-to-performance ratio
Tsunami rods may offer the best price:performance ratio of any in their price class. I have used many rods over the years but not own five Tusnami Airwave or Elite rods from this through its 11'4" big brother. They cast well, fight fish well, don't make you sweat putting some heat on fish, etc. The quality of the construction, from the Fuji components to the X-wraps to the thread wrapping and clear coat is superb.
ProsPrice, design, construction, aesthetics
ConsSome rod a little heavier than high-nend rods which cost 3-5 times as much.

Really tough Rod at this price point
I now have 3 Tsunami Rods. This particular model is the one I use for SeaBass/Ling/Cod. Very tough rod with enough backbone to solidily set a hook at 225' depth and 8oz lead. No fear using this rod.
ProsGuides are great. Rod has more than enough strength to handle most inshore fishing. Great price point !
ConsNone.

Beautiful when paired with a Shimano CI4+
I have the MH paired with a Rarenium CI4+ from Shimano. This combo is perfectly weighted and is super lightweight. Not to mention almost impervious to corrosion from saltwater. I use it all the time for kayak fishing to catch reds and speckled trout. Highly recommended!
ProsLightweight Great look
ConsNone

Very light and durable rod
I bought this rod for striper fishing. I matched it up with a quantum cabo 40 and it is very light and easy to fish with all day. It is extremely sensitive and an all around durable rod.

Thank you-- Some rods are composed of mixed metals in order to have the high resistance to salt, is there a different product I should be looking at, for this criteria?
1 Answers
I'm honestly not familiar with any rods that use this type of technology in their blanks. Their may be something to that effect in guides and reel seats. The vast majority of components on salt water rods are corrosion resistant and will not corrode so long as your gear is properly maintained, i.e. rinsing off your rods and reels with freshwater after every saltwater use.

What about these rod I can use for snooks and reds? I want to use it whit a Quantum Cabo 80. Should I go H or MH?
1 Answers
Given the size of the reel you will be using I would say that the Heavy model will likely be the better match, however we recommend that you consider how heavy the lures or sinkers you will be using are and select the rod that falls within that lure weight range.

What about these rod i can use for queen , mack and small tuna fishing ... like 20 to 40 lb + , bottom fishing and casting too ?
1 Answers
This rod can be used for bottom fishing, but I think that it would be a bit too light for small tuna fishing. You may want to go with a more stoat rod than this.

i do lots of fishing for gt jack and rooster fish and the gt are 45 plus lb rooster fish may 50lb cubera snapper in 45 to 60plus can this rod handle fish like that in heavy
1 Answers
I think that the rod would be a little light for the application that you are thinking of using it for. I would recommend taking a look at the heavier terez rods by Shimano.
