The new Trophy Series Conventional Slow Pitch Jigging Rods from Tsunami are constructed with the most modern and durable carbon fiber available! Each ultra-thin profile blank features a compact multi-layer design to deliver power, sensitivity and extraordinary flex under all circumstances. The high density layered blank construction uses Omni-directional scrim at the core for excellent internal hoop strength, resilient unidirectional power, with tip-to-butt fibers for finely tuned actions and unparalleled sensitivity. The result is a light, strong, powerful and sensitive rod which combines proven superior lifting power with fast sensitive blank recovery! Whether used for light tackle or heavy duty applications Trophy Slow pitch rods will balance with today’s compact conventional reels for a featherweight outfit that can perform like gear twice its size! Whether you are deep jigging reef fish, pulling tog from an underwater lair, or drifting for summer flounder, these super strong and incredibly sensitive rods will alert you to the lightest pick up or the most violent strike almost before it happens.

All models are braid ready with only the best of Fuji components selected for durability and longevity. Slow Pitch models feature genuine Fuji® Deep Pressed Concept “O” guides throughout. The conventional models are designed with a spiral wrapped guide train delivering more power and optimum load balance. Fuji® graphite reel seats are selected for strength, corrosion resistance and light weight. Grips are durable, lightweight, high density EVA and custom contoured for plenty of comfort regardless of the technique used. All guides are precisely wrapped and finished with a tough epoxy coating. While they will excel at the new and growing Slow Pitch jigging techniques, Trophy Slow pitch models are versatile enough to take on plenty of other salt water applications and excel in any number of situations.

This pole appears to be a complete joke… you look at it and think WTF? But the joke is on us! This pole is a power house… I’m shocked at how this thing performs… great pole… ridiculously lightweight but insanely powerful….
  • 7oz rod
  • Sensitive tip
  • Stout backbone
  • Can be fished all day
  • Looks like it can?t handle what you intended it to be used for?

Small Reel Seat
September 28, 2021
Bought these rods with the intention to pair them with an avet sx 5.3 G2. After reading several posts in the Q&A section saying the Avet SX will pair nicely. The reel seat is very small and barely catches the avet reel foot. Any torque on the reel and it pops out of the seat. Also you can’t use the reel clamp because the trigger assembly on back side of the rod doesn’t allow the clamp to sit flush. Just make sure it will fit your reel before ordering.

Great jigging rod
July 6, 2021
My friend had one of these. After my last Penn snapped (only had it 2 years) I decided to give the Tsunami a try and I have been very happy with it so far. With this I fish for Sea Bass, Porgy's, Blackfish, Flounder/Fluke and it works fine for me. So far, I'm happy with this rod. It's light and I like the rod bend a lot.

I have a couple of these that I use across a couple of different applications. Great for small to medium species like bluefish, fluke, and sea bass but can also handle some larger bycatch (I’ve reeled in a number of 30+ lb shark) and you can even jig for big tuna with them.

Reel Seat
December 30, 2020
I bought the 7 foot heavy rod to pair up with the forged 12. The reel plate does not quite sit properly into the rod seat. Im working on filing it down to fit better. Also, the reel clamp for this specific setup blocks the trigger and doesn't sit as well as it should. Other than that, a nice rod.

Perfect starter rod for slow pitch jigging
May 19, 2020
This is the perfect rod for getting started into slow pitch jigging. I bought it as an inexpensive rod to get going. Did well on my first use bringing in a number of red snapper and grouper with ease.
  • Cheap by comparison to most slow pitch jigging rods.
  • Good bend and fast recovery...good flex.

The Tsunami Trophy slow pitch rod is one of those rods that can do it all. It's my favorite rod to use out on the LI Sound for spring stripers, fall togging and summer time fluking. I have mine paired with an Avet and it's been the most reliable outfit I own!

Very strong, durable and sensitive.
February 6, 2020
I have 2 of these. I have the 6'6"and 6'8" models. I use the 6'6 at the reef for Black Sea Bass, Porgies and Fluke. I use the 6'8 for Blackfish and Stripers. I do wish the smaller guides were about a size up. None have broken but I am very careful because of their size. i have a Penn Fathom 15 star drag on the 6'8 and a Penn 965 on the 6'6. The setups are very light, yet surprisingly strong. I have them for 2 seasons now. Used 1-2x a week in season here in NY. They are holding up very well. I have caught Large Dogfish and medium size Bluefish on both and they handled them very nicely.
  • Inexpensive yet Strong, durable and sensitive.
  • Very small guides near tip. They do bend then bend back. Not while fishing, but by handling.
