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.

Great rod for Tautog!
September 13, 2019
I use this with a Daiwa Coastal for a light setup to jig a 1oz tautog jig. Rod is sensitive enough to feel the slightest bite and strong enough to high stick the toughest tog.

Extremely happy with my slow pitch jig rod. The sensitivity to feel every tail slap yet being able to DOUBLE over and kick butt is insane. No better jig rod for 100 bucks

Strong, Fun Rod
June 21, 2019
This rod is super fun to use and not to mention super light and super strong. Mostly using it for inshore blackfish but used it for fluke and it did the job as well.

ProsGreat Value Strong Light
ConsSome may say small eyelets

great rod but rod seat is not good
June 13, 2019
I bought this 6'6" medium heavy rod for my grandson and it has been a great rod, light with great action, we have landed big stripers and and bluefish but the rod seat leaves alot to be desired. Twice my reel (Newell 220) has popped out of the seat with fish on.
I don't understand why with this nice rod they put a cheap seat, - why not just put a fuji real seat on??
Prosgreat rod increased hits more lure action can take weight
Consrod seat is cheap

Great start to Vertical Jigging
April 26, 2019
5-stars because if you are getting into the jigging application and have a budget this is the way to go. I have several and have recently upgraded to a "fancier" rod after committing to this type of fishing.
ProsAffordable, has some action, handles big fish, acid wrapped guides
Consdoesn't have the big action for slow pitch style

Best SLOW PITCH Rod for the Money!! VERY RESPONSIVE!!
September 28, 2018
Without Breaking the Bank....This SLOW PITCH Rod is the Perfect One for a Starter and Beginner who is Learning the Technique....Very RESPONSIVE on your JIG that if you Match it with the Right Size and Weight of the Jig you are using....Otherwise you will feel you the rod is not connected to your Jig....

Once you mastered your Slow Pitch Technique....then you may consider upgrading to the Dedicated Slow Pitch Rod like BlackHole...

Mounted on Seigler SGN and had been slaying Yellow Tails and Schoolie Tunas...
ProsGreat Starter SLOW PITCH Rod....
ConsNone so far...

I used Tsunami TSSPJC-661MH Trophy Series Slow Pitch Jigging Casting Rod for flounder bottom fishing. I can't tell that if this rod holds 10lbs + fish since I only caught one small crab on 4 hour party charter boat..... I couldn't feel & see the full potential of this rod but I can tell that I wish this MH rod had one piece EVA grip for rear end grip!. the most charter boats rod holders scratches the rod blanks bad...
Prosfair price it's good for LIGHT JIGGING and bottom fishng
Conswish rear grip was not split EVA grips.... wish it was like Tsunami TSSPJS-601MH Trophy Series Slow Pitch Jigging Spinning Rod rear grip. one piece EVA grip is better for the party charter boat because rod blank gets scratched and damaged by the rod holders.... poor finish on EVA grips top guides are small

Know what you're getting into before you buy
April 24, 2018
I was able to use this rod on a trip on the Yankee Capts out of Key West, fishing in the Dry Tortugas, using 180g jig in approximately 220ft of water. For full disclosure, I am on the pro-staff of a company that also manufactures slow pitch jigging rods, but I will no disclose the company, or its products, so that this is an unbiased review based solely on the performance of this rod, from the perspective of someone who is a professional slow pitch angler, and who has fished nearly every available slow pitch jigging rod on the market.

Let's be up front when discussing the Tsunami series of rods - they are not a true, dedicated, slow pitch jigging rod. They are what appears to be a fast action, inshore blank with a re-configured reel seat and guide layout, and labeled as "slow pitch" to keep pace with the phrase as it gains in popularity. If you are bouncing a jig off the bottom, particularly in shallow water, and the rod action matters little to you, then this is fine.

If, however, you are actually trying to get into slow pitch jigging, and are learning the technique involved, then this is not a good option. The rod is terrible at effectively working a jig. Terrible. The rod does not load up well, the recoil is inconsistent and too quick, and you lose contact with the jig while fishing it.

Secondly, in general, be wary of a "slow pitch" rod that touts that it is versatile or that it is particularly strong. A true slow pitch rod has one function - to impart an action on a jig. That's it. It's not used to be a primary tool to fight the fish, and it is certainly not used for any other style of fishing.

If you know what you are getting into, and you are ok with the above, then by all means, make the informed choice to purchase this rod. However, if you think you are getting anything that resembles a true slow pitch jigging rod, you are very, very mistaken. In my opinion, it would be better to save a little extra money and put it toward a more dedicated product as the performance and your experience will be substantially better.
ProsIt's "value" priced.
ConsNearly everything if you are expecting anything that resembles the performance of an actual slow pitch jigging rod.

Will an Avet sxj 5.3 fit on this rod well? Also can the medium heavy handle 6 ounce sinkers?
1 Answer
The lure weight for the medium heavy is 1 - 4 1/4 oz. So I would recommend the heavy if you plan on using 6 oz. These rods would pair up perfectly with an Avet SX.

Would an Avet sxj 5.3 fit well on this rod? And also should i go with a medium heavy or heavy for bottom fishing for flounder and stripers?

The SXJ would be a great match for these rods. I would suggest the medium heavy for use with jigs or weights 4 oz. or less, and the heavy for use with weights 4 oz. to 7 oz.
