Enhance your performance with the Shimano Zodias Casting Rod! This rod is designed with the Hi-Power X rod blank, which increases energy transfers throughout the rod, and in turn allows you to achieve better accuracy and further casts! The Hi-Power X construction reduces blank twist, giving you a strong, durable rod for time to come! Shimano added their lightweight CI4+ reel seat to reduce the rod’s overall weight. The rod features the Carbon Monocoque technology, which helped set the bar for sensitivity with the most elite rods on the market today. The hollow Carbon Monocoque Grip increases the sensitivity of the rod, letting you feel every bump and vibration beneath the water’s surface. The Shimano Zodias Casting Rod has been redesigned to help you land that next trophy!
- Hi-Power X
- In Hi-Power X construction, the blank’s outermost layer is diagonally wrapped with carbon tape, which forms an array of “X” shapes. The width of the tape, its winding angle and the part of the rod being wrapped are fine-tuned according to the target fish species. The flexibility allows Shimano to adjust these wraps during construction for precise actions, enhanced overall strength and added twist resistance. Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control by the angler.

- Fuji Alconite guides
- Fuji SiC tip
- CI4+ Reel Seat
- CI4 is a Shimano original material reinforced with carbon fiber. It is lighter and has a higher strength than conventional resin material. CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4 material. This highly technical material is 2.5 times more rigid than CI4 and is used in Shimano reel seats to increase sensitivity and to reduce weight. Use of CI4+ for the reel seat also delivers remarkable rigidity for perfect reel fixation which results in better rod efficiency.

Great rod and very sensitive. I paired this with a Curado K and it's a terrific combo. The rod looks great and performs as expected. Nice work Shimano.
