Today I would like to review the Tsunami TSSHD 5000 Shield spinning reel. The shield was introduced about a year ago and the feedback on it2 has been terrific. Basically Tsunami found a need for fishermen which was the SpinFisher Penn centers is very popular reel but it is in this side. What they did was they took all the elements of that reel and put it into the shield reel and charging 110$ actually one of the designers on the SpinFisher helped us on this reel and the results have been really good. Tsunami just excels at taking more expensive product making it better and coming out at a more affordable price.
You’re looking at an all-aluminum reel raising, just 16.2 ounces and it’s nice and light and easy for us to hold and fish it all day. It’s got 5 field stainless steel ball bearings in the stainless steel. It’s very powerful carbon drive system to puts out 30 pounds of drag at max and it’s just great for surf boat fishing, any of that kind of stuff but the main get on this, is just like the SpinFisher’s sealed. It’s got all the seals and it’s just like a SpinFisher does all the key areas. Water corrosion in salt water is an issue for you and it’s a concern especially if you’re surf fishing the Shield 5000 is definitely a great option. There’s really nothing else as corrosion resistant as this and can do what this can do. It’s really a solid option. You can hold about 400 yards of 30 pounds that’s braid. It’s fish from boat obviously you can put it on anything and you’re down the gulf and you’re doing snapper, grouper and cobia net cast off. This is perfect or if you’re up here in the North doing a striped bass from the beach or from a boat bluefish that’s not perfect reel. It’s basically an over built reel.
If they get wet or beta them, they don’t get you and still have grip on. They’re not going to get slippery and it’s just a really well-made reel from Tsunami. The first attempt today is a better reel and it’s been a huge success. The feedback from anglers has been terrific. We’ve sold hundreds and hundreds of these in series and they don’t come back. Guys, fishing all the time and absolutely love them. Check it out it’s the Tsunami TSS HD5000 Shield Spinning Reel. They are in stock and available.
