There are a few things to note, however. The description on the website lists 3-8oz as the lure rating, but on the rod it is printed as 3-6oz (thats a 25% lighter lure than advertised on the website). Additionally the grips are listed as hypolon, but the label on the rod lists them as EVA foam, they definitely feel more like hypolon in my experience tho so it could be a Tsunami issue. Lastly, the guides are listed as "ALPS" guides, which they are, but it makes no mention of the insert material. They are aluminum oxide, which I understand to be about the lowest quality insert that is still usable for braided line.
My last "Complaint" would be that the ALPS reel seat, which is aluminum, was kind of marred like it had been scuffed in the rack or during production, not any big scratched or scores, but some marks on the seat that I would not expect, and would not accept if I had purchased the rod in person, but shipping it back is too big of a hassle to mess with it.
All in all for 180 bucks it feels good in hand, I haven't had a chance to take it out onto the water yet, but from pulling on it, it feels like it will be able to fish 40# (assuming 40-65# braid and a 40# leader with drag set at about 14#)
