Multi fish rod
October 29, 2020
I purchased 2 of these rods and outfitted wove Alet sx reels. I fish salt water out of a boat in the Cape Cod area. We caught Back Sea Bass, Fluke, Scup, Tautog, and some blue fish. I have many rod setups but love fishing this light weight with some back bone. Great for the money.

Worth it for the $

Oversized packaging worth it, I have saved the tube for moving and travel. I have pulled 4'-5' sharks on this medium heavy rod, and 20" - 30" snook, both are just as fun!

OK but not Medium Heavy

Good quality but these should be rated medium and not medium heavy. I would get these again and just go up one level

Best bang for the buck

I’ve tried just about all. These rods are amazing for the price! This spinning rod is still going strong after 4 years and handling everything from 1/2 lb scup to full day assault of 30 lb Stripers. Most underrated rod manufacturer out there. Happy I tried it, now commited!

for $50 this is the best options out there. great for inshore, out front jigging. haven't owned this long so i've only got to target flounder with it, but i've had as much as 3oz bucktails with a teaser on here and it performed very well. paired this with a shimano sedona and made a quality rig for just over $100. very happy

Excellent Rod For Price
February 15, 2019
This is an excellent rod for the price. I own the casting version and bought two spinning rods for my kids. You can't beat the quality for the price. We use them to fish fluke, stripers, blue fish, tog, trash fish and anything that bites.

best rod brand out there for the price
July 17, 2018
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!

Tsunami issue
June 2, 2018
First trip out I had an issue after making five castes. The rod broke between the second and third guide from the tip. I'm chalking this up as a defect or even possibly a Nick the rod might have sustained during shipping from the factory to Tackle Direct. But I wanted to write this review because of the unbelievable customer service! I emailed Tackle Direct Customer Service the night of the mishap and by the end of the following business day I had already received an email with a return code for a replacement free of charge except for the fact that I have to pay to ship the broken one back first. Definitely not a problem and I'm looking forward to putting up another review for the rod once I get the replacement.

Great inshore plugging rod. Build quality is that of a rod double or triple the price.

Best Inshore Bass Rod I've ever used
July 24, 2016
A few months ago I ordered a Tsunami Classic MF spinning rod in hopes that it would replace some of my older gear. To my surprise, it was not only a better rod than I had been using, it also soon became my favorite. I promptly ordered two more rods to add to my arsenal. These rods have a great action for top-water baits, soft baits and suspending hard baits; and the fight you get with these rods is simply fantastic!

From cow bass to bottom fishing this rod will handle it no sweat. Matched with an appropriate reel and line this rod will land many fish, maybe even a trophy.

Couldn't beat it for the money
February 16, 2015
I have 4 of the 7 foot heavy rods. I was looking for a rod that I could use for inshore fishing for striped bass and bluefish to throw plugs that are for the most part 1-2 oz. and this fit the bill perfectly. I was looking at some others but they were all much more expensive and I wanted something that I was not afraid to beat up. These work great for me and I have no complaints other than the butt could be a little bit longer however it is not short by any standards. Overall I would definitely recommend this rod since it can't be beat for the price and performance.
Proslooks awesome, sensitive, price, does exactly what I want
Consbutt is a little short but not noticable

Nice budget rod
December 26, 2014
I was comparing these rods to the Calico Jack MH rods. The CJ rods are a bit lighter, but since the action is not apples to apples I'm not sure that is a fair comparison. The Heavy action Tsunami feels confident and should fit many needs other than heavy bottom/trolling. The appearance is good, perhaps not quite as neat as the CJ rods, it is overall very acceptable.

sweet kayak rod
December 22, 2014
Great little light weight kayak rod, has a really short butt that makes casting easier. Whippy. Think small baits and 2000-2500 size reels.
ProsShort butt.
