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.
