Report Tsunami rod question in Main Forum Posted September 27, 2018 Hey guys, im planning to purchase a new rod for striper/blue fishing from a boat. Was interested in either the tsunami slim wave spinning rod or the tsunami air wave elite in a 6’-7’ length. Anyone ever used these rods for stripers or large fish? The slim wave looks awesome but im not sure if it could take a beating from a 20lb or larger fish. Im sure the airwave elite could handle the job, but the slim wave seems to be lighter and thinner so im leaning more towards that rod but would be upset if it snapped with a fish on.
