Surf casting is a distance game and Airwave Surf rods deliver maximum performance in a strong lightweight design. High-pressure production techniques, yield powerful high-fiber density graphite blanks with no excess weight. The result is a more sensitive, and lighter weight, high performance rod built for the toughest surf fishing conditions Every Airwave blank provides fast energy recovery to transmit more power to each cast. That means more distance with less effort. If your arms are tired after a day of fishing with Airwave rods...it just means you caught more fish!

  • Lighter, stronger more powerful
  • High Fiber Density blank Construction
  • Increased Sensitivity
  • Improved Casting Distance
  • Pac Bay Aluminum Oxide Braided Line Friendly Guides
  • Fuji Graphite Reel Seat
  • Lightweight Diamond Textured Vinyl and EVA Grips
  • Fuji Butt Cap

I am now ordering my third 11' Tsaumi airWave conventional surf rod. This rod is a true pleasure do to its very light weight and a great handle. I wish they made these as 12 or 13 foot. With its light weight you can cast quite times per session without needing a rest.
Prosweight, long handle, great price
ConsI'd love seeing even longer Ones

Great rod at a great price! One of the lightest rods I have. Even my friends are shocked at how light it is! Great with a Penn Squall 15!

I finally had a chance to put this rod to work last weekend. Loaded up nicely with half of a medium blue crab and 4 oz spider weight. Casted 80 to 90 yards consistently. The reel I used was a Penn Fathom II15 ds out of the box with 50lb braid. Note the reel has not been altered as of this time so I expect that once the grease has been removed and oil applied instead my distance should increase.
ProsNice and light to me.
ConsNone at this time.

I sold my 12 foot Mojo and replaced with this rod at less than half the price. I found the Mojo difficult to cast at my height, the handle is too long. This rod feels like it was custom made for me. I'm 5'10". Casting bunker head +6oz seems to be the sweet spot
ProsQuality and price cant be beat
ConsMight be overrated on the specs for 10oz. Not sure yet

Used this for a total of 3 weeks, got it in 2015. Used on the beach for 1 week each year.
tip broke off about 6 inches down while only casting a 6 oz weight set up.
ProsLight and sensitive.
ConsNot built strong enough for an 8 oz rig as rated.

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!

I've used many surf rods and this rod is by far the best one I've had my hands on. It's performance is above and beyond my expectations.
ProsHandle lenght is perfect. Backbone is great. Pac Bay eyes are a plus.

I've used this rod about 8 trips now. I own the same in conventional and they both work great. The rod is light and has done well when hooked on big rays. Only downside is the butt is really thick and has trouble fitting in the fishing cart holder (fish-n-mate jr)

Own a Tsunami 10’ trophy casting really like ,want to buy 10’ Airwave casting rod is it about same thick handle and length and weight compared to trophy series . Thanks
1 Answer
The Airwaves are similar in size compared to the Trophy. The handle is a bit thinner on the Airwave. For casting ability i would recommend using the Airwave over the Trophy.
