Surf casting is a distance game and Airwave Surf Spinning rods deliver maximum performance in a strong lightweight design. Whether you choose an 8 foot rod for tossing small lures or a 12 foot model to launch a cut bait over the outer bar, Airwave Surf rods are up to the task. 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 Surf 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

Only surf rods I deal with
May 6, 2020
Have 3 of these and had one broken due to closing my trunk on it. These rods are light, cast a mile if you know how and strong. Have caught everything from redfish, bluefish, mackerels, pompanos and even croakers on these. Do yourself a favor and dont go cheap and go with these!

cast well and built strong

have used the rod for the past four years and it has lasted threw being dropped on the rocks and ever falling and it slammed into the sand. it casts very well and is very duriable when fighting big striped bass in the canal.
Prosgreat casting and has good feel when pared with 30-50lb braid
Consneeds a hook hold
By Dave
12 foot heavy airwave
October 1, 2019
Great casting rod however I have broke two of them casting a 3 ounce weight with small bait and 30 lb braid. Pole is definitely over rated. Tsunami has replaced one for free so far.
ProsCasts long distance with ease.
ConsWay over rated pole.

TSAWSS-1102H - Excellent Rod for the Price
June 13, 2019
I have paired it with Ultegra 5500. What a beautiful combo. Extremely light. Excellent to fish with bunker. I haven't tried plugging with it yet but it seems promising. For the money, it makes such an excellent beginner / backup rod.
ProsNot expensive Light but Strong.
By Brandon
as advertised
March 24, 2019
would recommend this rod
Proscast up to 5 oz lures
By Brian
Better than G.Loomis
March 13, 2019
G.Loomis is $600. Tsunami is $140. If I have all the money in the world I'd still pick Tsunami. It's LIGHTER, cheaper, better look, feels great. I fish for Stripbass 10-30 fish and these are best I found

12' H 4-6oz
April 20, 2018
Its very light compare to other 12', however it doesnt cast as far, and for $150 rod i expected the guides could be a little bit better, they scratch easily
Cape Cod
Snapped in half.
April 14, 2018
I had this rod in Nantucket and on my first cast, it snapped below the first eye. The rod looked great and felt solid, but that "lighter than air technology" did not hold up. I must have got a lemon so I won't give it 1 star. I emailed Tsunami and they never responded.
ProsLooks cool lightweight
ConsGot a lemon I guess The companies customer service is non-existent

It's doing what I got it for. 8 oz plus bait. Haven't held back on the cast. Nice rod without the broomstick feeling. No issues as of now. Money well spent.
