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.

Best SLOW PITCH Rod for the Money!! VERY RESPONSIVE!!
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
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.

Best tog rod out there
You can not find a more fun rod out there. I have caught 10+ lb tog on this rod. It had a light weight feel with enough backbone to handle bigger fish. I have both the MH and H. I recommend the slow pitch rods for any bottom fishing .
ProsLight but mighty
ConsWarning, when you take this rod offshore for double digits black fish you may encounter funny looks from fellow fisherman at first!

The 400 would fit(a little on the light side) but it would be a very light weight setup.

I have a Ocea Conquest 200HG and want to slow pitch in Southern Cal. Looking at these Tsunami's. Based on inshore/offshore applications, am I better off with Heavy or medium heavy? Should I be looking at another stick as well?
1 Answers
I would recommend using the medium heavy over the heavy with the size ree you are pairing with.

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 Answers
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.
