Tsunami Airwave Elite…

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYou like this  picture ? I bet you do.

This winter I told you that Tsunami Airwave Elite will be coming out with few new moderately priced hi-performance models this spring as Lou and I were shown some prototypes this winter at River’s End. I just got one, 10 6 and rated from 1 to 3 1/2 ounces. Unfortunately I am working seven days a week right now. And on top of that, I also have some family time away scheduled. So either I am at work or away last few weeks and new few weeks too. Time to hit the beach just was not there.

I did desperately wanted to try this new Tsunami Airwave Elite model in the daytime. You know how it is, every lure looks like it’s  going a mile in the dark. So last night I went to the local beach in a pouring rainstorm and wicked in-your-face wind. Wife said “aren’t you too old for this shit?”

I said “Are you kidding, I am a guppy. Now Vito, he is ancient and he is STILL fishing”. You can never be too old to have fun. And Vito, I am just kidding. We all can only wish to have Vito’s spirit and drive!

This was a result of a first cast with new Tsunami Elite.


Yup. It that wild water the beast kicked my ass pretty good

I am in no way ready to dispense advice or opinion on these rods. I prefer to test the rods on multiple occasions under different scenarios to see how they perform. Only someone like the Rod Guru Lou Caruso can shake the rod in his back yard for a second a tell you what  it what. I have no such skills. This rod, unlike previous rods in the Elite Series is thin, reaaaaaly thin and light. Super light..as is the price of under $200..

More details coming  after some further testing, I just wanted to let you know that they are here. My thoughts on the rod will have to wait a little until more testing is done. First impression was  positive. Not sure where you can see one in person but I assume they are trickling into stores as we speak

    I have been beating up on the 11-foot rated 1.5 to 4.5 ounces. So far no complaints, I am actually quite happy and surprised with the performance of the rod.
