Through the use of unique, high-pressure production techniques, each Tsunami Airwave Elite rod starts out with a strong, powerful, high-fiber density blank that is light and sensitive. Airwave Elite rods feature Fuji Concept Alconite K series guides and Fuji high performance graphite reel seats.
Every Airwave Elite rod provides extreme sensitivity to detect the most subtle bites. If your arms are tired after a day of fishing with Airwave rods...it just means you caught more fish!

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!

you cannot beat it for the value. this rod has caught more stripers on the boat and i am not afraid to let the kiddos throw baits.

5-stars for price-to-performance ratio

Tsunami rods may offer the best price:performance ratio of any in their price class. I have used many rods over the years but not own five Tusnami Airwave or Elite rods from this through its 11'4" big brother. They cast well, fight fish well, don't make you sweat putting some heat on fish, etc. The quality of the construction, from the Fuji components to the X-wraps to the thread wrapping and clear coat is superb.
ProsPrice, design, construction, aesthetics
ConsSome rod a little heavier than high-nend rods which cost 3-5 times as much.

I've always been a fan a tsunami rods but the airwave elite rods are by far the lightest, strongest rods I've used. I plan to buy a few more real soon!!

Nice lighter action boat Rod that is the total package for $100
ProsNice grips, blank, and guides
ConsWish they had more variations
Really tough Rod at this price point
October 28, 2015
I now have 3 Tsunami Rods. This particular model is the one I use for SeaBass/Ling/Cod. Very tough rod with enough backbone to solidily set a hook at 225' depth and 8oz lead. No fear using this rod.
ProsGuides are great. Rod has more than enough strength to handle most inshore fishing. Great price point !

Blank has heck of lot a backbone. k guide awesome.. I love tsunami I have 3 rid of this.. awesome price awesome deal.
Beautiful when paired with a Shimano CI4+
June 2, 2015
I have the MH paired with a Rarenium CI4+ from Shimano. This combo is perfectly weighted and is super lightweight. Not to mention almost impervious to corrosion from saltwater. I use it all the time for kayak fishing to catch reds and speckled trout. Highly recommended!
ProsLightweight Great look
Very light and durable rod
November 27, 2014
I bought this rod for striper fishing. I matched it up with a quantum cabo 40 and it is very light and easy to fish with all day. It is extremely sensitive and an all around durable rod.

Very nice rod. Has great flex yet a lot of back bone. Haven't used it yet since striper fishing hasn't opened yet but can't wait to use it.
Hi Mate, I have this 7' Tsunami Airwaves Elite Braid Spinning Rod, MH (20#/40# line weight) which I bought from Tackledirect before. What would be the appropriate spinning reel to match this rod? I am planning to get/ buy one. Is Shimano Saragoza 8000F spinning reel a suitable reel to match with this rod? Any suggestion? Many thanks...Vic
The saragosa 6000 would pair up well with this rod or a Quantum Cabo 40
Thank you-- Some rods are composed of mixed metals in order to have the high resistance to salt, is there a different product I should be looking at, for this criteria?
I'm honestly not familiar with any rods that use this type of technology in their blanks. Their may be something to that effect in guides and reel seats. The vast majority of components on salt water rods are corrosion resistant and will not corrode so long as your gear is properly maintained, i.e. rinsing off your rods and reels with freshwater after every saltwater use.
What about these rod I can use for snooks and reds? I want to use it whit a Quantum Cabo 80. Should I go H or MH?
Given the size of the reel you will be using I would say that the Heavy model will likely be the better match, however we recommend that you consider how heavy the lures or sinkers you will be using are and select the rod that falls within that lure weight range.
