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.

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.
ProsNice rod
ConsReel seat.... chose wisely

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.
ProsCheap 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!
ProsLight and durable

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.
ProsInexpensive yet Strong, durable and sensitive.
ConsVery small guides near tip. They do bend then bend back. Not while fishing, but by handling.

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

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

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

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...

ProsGreat Starter SLOW PITCH Rod....
ConsNone so far...

from san francisco, CA asked:
February 6, 2018
1 Answer
The Trophy Series Slow Pitch rods are going to be a much lighter weight and thinner blank than the Airwave. Both rods are going to have a much slower action than any fast action rod. This means that the rods will have a deeper bend throughout the mid-section of the rod, whereas a fast action rod bends predominantly at the tip.

Will the Daiwa saltist 20hc or the shimano tekota 500 fit on comfortably?
1 Answer
I feel like the Tekota is too large for the reel. The Saltist 20 is a better fit. Personally, I feel like this model would pair up best with a lowprofile baitcasting reel or a small conventional like the Avet SXJ.
