For the surf
Nice light rod. Plan to match with Penn SLAIII6500 for bait fishing or Penn SSV6500BLS for plugging the Atlantic. Just waiting for April 15th (opening day for stripers in NY) to put it to work.
ProsLight weight. 50/50 split makes it easy to transport in a Camaro.

Beast of a surf rod.
ProsTip is still sensitive enough to see small critters hitting at your bait.
ConsGimbal little wider than my other rods. Had to go up a size on pvc surf rod holder. Not really a con but just do fit test before heading out.

better than i expected
I originally got this just for a rod to mess around with for cocktail blues or tiny bass under a bridge when they were migrating. after a couple uses, I realized this is waaay too stiff for my liking. so instead i ended up using it as a fluke + flounder rod off the jetties. even if stated as a heavy rod, should still allow some bend. feel like i'll snap the rod before i let the rod dip 20 degrees.
Prossturdy, great hook sets and sensitive
Consrigid, barely any bend before you can cause damage to the rod.

Extra heavy but light weight
12’ length is great for casting and with the extra heavy action lets you use plenty of lead and bait.

Great rod, great price
This is my third Tsunami surf rod and so far seems to be my best one yet. Very lively but with plenty of backbone. Casts easily. I prefer the two piece design so I can transport them easily, definitely helps with a 10ft rod and 4 door sedan. The eyes are strong and cast braid very well.
ProsPrice Quality Grip Eyelets Price.. again!
ConsMaybe the plastic reel seat? Hasn't been an issue though.

Bought two shield 4000 reels. Absolute trash and ended up throwing both of them away after about a month. However I thought there rods were pretty good. Then on a recent trip to the keys I had TWO tsunami rods break. One broke on a mangrove snapper. A tiny mangrove snapper.. and the other broke while casting out a 6oz weight for a trolley rig. The rod was rated to ten ounces and a six ounce weight snapped it. To top it off there customer service is non existent and they don’t respond to emails or phone calls. Avoid tsunami at all costs.
ConsNo customer service. Poor quality. Random failures

Great surf rod for the price. This is a cheap, but GREAT rod. Rod handles fish great and the 50/50 split for the 2 piece makes it very easy to put away without it taking up too much room.
ProsLightweight for the price. Affordable and reliable.
ConsScratches on the rod will be very noticeable, but who cares.

Loving it
I actually use this rod with an Okuma trio rex reel and love it for chunk fishing. Handles blues and stripers with no problems. Actually went out and bought a 2nd one for my brother.
Prosgreat sensitivity for those picky soft hits, and handles the fish well.

Great Inshore Rod for the Price
I bought this 7ft 2 piece rod as a second inshore rod after having used and liked my larger Tsunami rod. Very good for the price, nice and lively. It's a little lighter action than I thought, but works out fine for throwing anything up to about 2-2.5oz. Nice build quality and a good thin grip with a large butt knob. Reel seat is quality too, I use with a 4000 series penn reel, which is a little too big for this rod but was given to me.
ProsGreat quality for the price Nice guides Comfortable thin grip Lively action
ConsTwo piece junction isn't always confidence-inspiring, but hasn't been a problem yet Grip butt is a little short for my liking Not a ton of power for casting distance.. but it is only 7ft light action!

Tsunami TSTSS 902MH Trophy Surf Spinning Rod
Paired this rod with a Tsunami Shield reel for a light surf set up

Great rod for the money!!!
I bought this rod for my dad for father's day and when I got it in the mail and looked at it I couldn't believe how nice of a finish it had, has kind of a carbon fiber look to it and how light of a 2 piece rod it was when i put it together! If your looking to do some serious surf fishing but don't want to spend an arm and a leg the tsunami trophy series is the way to go! Has a very grippy textured cork tape handle that feels really nice in the hand, feels more like a one piece rod than a 50/50 split with alot more backbone, and of course for those who like big guides instead of the really small one like you see on the other rods, this rod has them! He has this rod paired with an older reel but yet pretty big a penn 7500ss with 30lb braid fishing with a bottom rig (4oz pyramid) and he said it casts ultra smooth oh and the rod is a medium heavy. 1 other feature about this rod I forgot to put out there was it has kind of a matte black finish at the break down portion of the rod to help assemble and take apart the rod for traveling which I thought was pretty cool cause no other rod i know of has that . Sorry for all the random sentences, but hope this helps!
ProsAmazing fit, finish, and quality with affordable pricing for anyone looking to get into surf fishing or pier fishing
ConsSome of you who want a rod like this may want fuji guides but this one comes with pac bay guides so that personal preference but again nothing at all wrong with pac bay guides haven't had a minutes problem with them so far and they are very well built and wrapped into the rod!

I got an extra penn passion 5000. Would this be a good option for that reel? I'm looking for a surf rod to be used just for chunking bait, mainly cigar minnows. Fishing for whatever bites. Thanks
1 Answers
The 5000 series Penn Passion is to small of a reel to be paired with a 11 foot surf rod. max length on a rod to be paired with a 5000 size reel would maybe 8 foot.
