Wanted to try slow pitch jigging so I bought this rod a while ago, have caught red snapper and a bunch of other bottom fish as well as amberjack on it and haven’t had any problems yet.

Excellent sensitive tip with a strong back bone to set the hook. Not the best for tossing lures but works great for soaking bait.

Just got a 7’ MH rod and it is great! Went out twice this week and caught some fluke right off the surf. Handled them great. I paired it with a 5000 stradic fl (stradic is on the smaller side) and its an unmatched pair. Great rod, plan to use it for freshwater as well

Best multi-use saltwater rod

I've used the 7,0 MH spinning rod for catching small spot and croaker in the bay to jigging for seabass with 3-4oz diamond jigs off of party boats. Paired with a 3000 size tsunami shield is perfect. Many times, a big bluefish will eat you jig and this rod has no problem swinging 5-8 pound blues over the party boat rails. Best rod ever.

This rod is a blast to use. I still can not believe the amount of power it has and the pressure you can put on it. Have used it jigging for blackfish and backbay fluking. The tip is really sensitive love using any time i get a chance!

Light, sensitive tip, and strong rod. Use mine for bottom fishing for sheepshead.
By Jessie
best rod brand out there for the price
July 17, 2018
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.

  • Well worth the money. Very sensitive. Light as a feather. Strong poles. Very good looking.
  • Absolutely none. Best rod i have ever used, and i have used a lot!

I asked a previous question about pairing with a saltist 3000.  You guys recommend ed the 6-6 heavy.  I went ahead and purchased a Penn Slammer 3500 from You.  Would You still stick with the 6.6 ft heavy with this reel? 
1 Answer
Yes, the heavy would also pair great with that H model.

What would pair best with a saltist 3000 for tog

jigging on party boats?

1 Answer
The 6ft 6 H would be great for togging on party boats. It is great for those shallow waters with minimal current using 1-2oz jigs. Also is great for the deeper jigging and heavier currents when you need 3-4oz jigs.

Hi I own a Shimano Torium 16hglh which rods would work best


1 Answer
Depends on the application however the TSU-0221 would pair nicely with your Torium. This is a popular model in the slim waves because of the light over all build but being able to load the rod with anything from 3/4 to 4 oz.

from Sandy hook,nj asked:
December 23, 2019
I fish for fluke ratitanbay/sandyhook area bay and ocean. Which one would be good for ocean fishing??
1 Answer
Depends on if you prefer a spinning or casting rod when you fish. So if you were looking for a casting rod we would recommend the tsu-0221. This is a 6ft 6in length with the 3/4-4oz lure rating keeps sensitivity while fluke fishing and gives you versatility on baits depending on depth and current! If you are looking for a spinning rod the TSU-0222 is the 6ft that can handle up to 2 oz which would be great for a lighter tackle rod and a lot of fun. If you needed something slightly longer and heavier check out the TSU-0225!

I already own the 7,0 MH spinning rod and wanted to get another one, what would the 6,0 Spinning rod be good for? 
1 Answer
The 6ft model would be perfect for back bays. Fluke fishing, top-water fishing for blues and striper. It handles up to 3oz so it also would work for bottom fishing for Tau-tog and sea-bass.

The Shimano Saragosa 6000 would be to big for the slim wave, a 4000 nasci or a shimano stradic fk 4000 or 5000 would be a good pair for that rod.

Does the 6ft spinning rod have a lure raring to 3 oz or is the rating wrong on site? I see it rated to 3oz on other sites. Would a BG3000 match well for inshore and bay flunking, sea bass etc?
1 Answer
The 6' would match well with a 3000 sized reel however I wouldn't throw any lures over 1.5 oz with this rod.

The line rating refers to Braided line. It is not recommended to use heavier line than the rating however 40lb should be doable with this rod. You may lose some casting distance
