Boasting features and components frequently seen in rods well beyond its price point, the Tsunami SaltX Surf Spinning Rods mark a significant step forward in affordable performance engineered surf rods. In a market where high performance surf fishing gear is becoming more attainable for all anglers, the Tsunami SaltX Surf Rods and 100% waterproof SaltX Spinning Reels make the perfect pair for the avid surf angler who pushes their gear to the limits.  Featuring a unique eight-axis blank with D16 Nanotech and IM7 carbon fiber construction, the SaltX Surf Rods achieve the ideal moderate action to load properly and sling lures forward well past the breakers while retaining incredible hoop strength. While most surf rods only truly excel at casting lures within the middle range of the rod's rated lure weight (often referred to by surf casters as the rod's "sweet spot"), anglers will find the SaltX to be a phenomenal caster of lures at both the lighter and heavier end of the respective model's lure rating. Sparing no expense in terms of components, the SaltX is fitted with genuine Fuji silicon carbide K-frame guides and Fuji graphite and stainless steel reel seats with back stop lock rings. Handles are wrapped with comfortable shrink vinyl grips and a set of unique scale textured stops at each end of the reel seat and on the butt cap.


  • 100% D16 Nanotech, IM7 carbon fiber construction
  • Eight axis blank construction for greatest hoop strength
  • Genuine Fuji silicon carbide braid proof, K-frame guides
  • Genuine Fuji graphite and stainless steel reel seats with Back Stop Lock Rings
  • 70 / 30 split ferrule for smooth, one piece action
  • Durable, light weight shrink vinyl grips with scale textured stops
  • Tough, high gloss epoxy wrap finish

Amazing Rod

Can’t say enough for this rod. This is a step higher than the airwave elites. Got the 9’6” and love it. I don’t use custom rods but this is nothing short of a custom rod for me.
ProsLight, sensitive, quality

I've only used the rod about a dozen times but the weight and power make it perfect for repeated long casting 1-2 oz lures. I've paired the rod with a SaltX600 which is a nice combination. The rod is so light compared to the reel.

Great rod
September 20, 2020
I have this paired with the saltx 6000 bailess and I use it strictly for plugging had a 42 pound striper hammer on this pole and I swore it was a one piece rod the action of this pole made me unsure of the weight of the fish because the rod has no dead spots I recognized yet super light layout just wish it had a hook holder but my go to setup now the Fiji k guides are super smooth and pretty durable no scratches or anything even hooking my plugs on the guide

Best length to pair it with a 6K SaltX? For lures 
1 Answer

With the SaltX 6000 reel, the best lengths would be 10', 10'6", or 11' of the SaltX surf rod.  Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

Would a Penn Slammer 4500 fit this rod well?
1 Answer
The 4500 Penn Slammer would pair well with the 8'6" and the 9'6" rods but may be small for any of the larger sizes.
