The Tsunami Shield series of Salt waterproof spinning reels feature up to 13 internal seals in key, strategic locations to shield critical components from harmful saltwater intrusion. The internal seals, super smooth and strong CF3 carbon fiber drag system and 5 sealed stainless steel bearings are wrapped in a hybrid machined aluminum body combining protection, precision and toughness. The heavy-duty rotor brake controlled bail system and precision machined aluminum, braid-ready spool assure the best control of super braids cast after long cast.

The 3000 and 4000 SHIELD models contain 11 strategically located internal seals for years of reliable use with minimal maintenance. The 5000 and 6000 Shield reels contain 13 various internal seals at all of the locations where salt water could reasonably be expected to penetrate the reel for even greater protection in these larger reels. Hybrid all metal construction includes precision machined aircraft aluminum and tempered aluminum precision stampings and heavy duty protective anodizing to keep these reels operating up to factory specifications year after year. The combination of these top-notch designs and precisely mated components are what make the Tsunami Shield spinning reels an all new contender for your favorite reel for years to come!

If your serious about striper fishing don't bother with this reel spend another 100 bucks and go with something with better quality, I purchased the 6000 and loved this reel at first catching schoolies in the spring but when the big fish came around this reel fell apart, after the first couple of 20/30 pounders it started making clicking sounds on retrievals, bail loved to slam shut and it flexed when big fish were on. And to top it all off the reel handle actually backed off while in a rod holder on the boat and fell overboard, so now the whole reel is somewhere off Martha's Vineyard in about 50 feet of water. Basically you get what you pay for...
ProsProbably the best reel for 100 bucks
ConsIt's a reel for 100 bucks...

ProsLooks and feels great.

Really nice surf reel
I paired this up with a Saint Croix Legend, perfectly balanced outfit. Got hit by a wave, no problem, the seals kept the salt water out. Rinsed it off with fresh water and was really for the next day in the surf.
ProsSeals keep out salt water
Consnone I can see at this point

A stronger reel than expected
I bought the 4000 sized reel after speaking with one of the customer service reps and it was a great move. I paired this reel up with a G Loomis GL3 so I could have an ultralight cast all day combo. Currently using for the fluking and seabass season.
ProsGreat value and well built

Tsunami hits a Grand Slam
Hard to believe the amount of reel you get for the price. Always loved Tsunami for the quality / price ratio and this reel makes me a Tsunami fanatic.
ProsWeight, seals.
ConsNot the greatest pinion but let's see how it holds up after a few years.

would this reel in the size 5000 be a good fit for a 9 ft surf rod and would a 6000 be too big and better fit a 10 ft rod?
Hello Troy. The 5000 size would balance well with the 9' rod and the 6000 size reel would not be to big for the 10'. Both would balance well.
