Tsunami Travel Surf Spinning Rods are constructed with unidirectional graphite composite blanks that are wrapped in an ultra-high modulus graphite mesh outer layer over the length of the unidirectional blank for increased sensitivity, toughness, power and strength to overcome trophy size gamefish.

Light weight and strength mean less angler fatigue while fighting the biggest fish with better energy transfer and more force directed to the fish. The graphite mesh aids in refining each rod action to assure the best of energy storage and transfer on every cast or during the toughest fight.

Good rod, haven't hooked that lunker with this rod but, sensitive feel for surf perch pecks makes it a fun day in the surf. Lower guides are Big, so finding an affordable case for it is a little challenging. Overall, very pleased with this rod. no wind knot's on braided line. Credit to the large guide?
ProsPrice, for a 3 piece, it held tight with little to no adjustment even with a hard "whip" on the cast
ConsLower guide is big

This will do the job. The 3 piece construction looks like it's gonna hold up.

The action seems s bit rubbery at 2oz. But, if you plan this as a having a fun afternoon or two on vacation with a packed up tight car, this will do.

The pieces stay put ok, the reel seat seems good. The guides are ok. The tip guide is brass.

If this was a 2 piece rod, it would be like a 50 or 60 dollar one.

I'll define try use it for fishing after work, but more than am hour or two, I'll be stuffing an airwave elite in there.

Strength and size would be fine for fluke, blues, or typical striper. I'd not want to cast much over 3oz or be jigging inlets from shore. Definitely more of a lure rod than a heavy pyramid weight thrower.

Howevwr, definitely better than a 7ft rod.
ProsSmall, affordable.
ConsSeems a little soft for heavier surf or inlet use.

best rod brand out there for the price

They are literally manufactured around the corner from where i live ( less than 5 miles) in Mahwah NJ and are truly fantastic. I would recommend this company to anyone, plain and simple. This is my current pole from bottom fishing to Mahi Mahi and even smaller sharks. I even caught a 300+lb shark on my tsunami reel rated for 40 lb and my tsunami pole rated for 80-100 pound line in a chum slick 10 ft from the boat and wrenched him in. My father went out and bought a $300 custom rod years back for it's lightness and sensitivity, but when i handed him my rod to hold so i could get a sandwich, he he wouldn't give it back and went out and bought one of these. The thing is so sensitive you can literally feel the types of ocean floor terrain you are on, and distinguish bites from that, and also it is light as a feather.
ProsWell worth the money. Very sensitive. Light as a feather. Strong poles. Very good looking.
ConsAbsolutely none. Best rod i have ever used, and i have used a lot!

Used primarily for jetty salmon fishing here in Benicia California, its also excels for stripers off the same jetty using bucktails or soft plastics. Throws a long way even with the lightest of spinners or bucks. Sensitive tip and most importantly... doesnt take up any space at all in the trunk.
ProsSentive tip Good back bone
