Increase your hook set ratio with the Shimano Zodias Spinning Rod! This rod series has been redesigned to incorporate Shimano's Carbon Monocoque technology, which set the industry standard for sensitivity in the most elite rods! Using a CI4+ reel seat and the hollow Carbon Monocoque grip, this rod achieves even greater sensitivity, allowing you to feel every tick and vibration beneath the surface of the water, helping you to get a higher hook ratio! Shimano designed the Zodias Spinning Rod family with their Hi-Power X blank technology, which creates a crisp and responsive rod. This blank helps efficiently and easily transfer energy through the rod, which delivers incredible casting distance while enhancing overall accuracy. The Shimano Zodias Spinning Rod is a crisp, responsive rod that delivers casting distance and accuracy with absolute ease!
- 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.
- 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.
- Carbon Monocoque grip
- Fuji Alconite guides
- Fuji SiC tip
- Manufacturer's one-year limited warranty
Ratings & Reviews
Best Finesse Swimbait Rod on the Market
I use the 7'6 Medium for finesse swimbaiting and it is phenomenal. Can feel everything and the way the rod loads up allows them to get the bait deep and stay pinned.

After a long weekend of jigging with my new Zodias this past weekend I have to say that I'm highly impressed. For the price point it is a great rod with wonderful sensitivity. I have the 7' ML for finesse jigging with a 1/16th oz jig and can feel that jig with no problems.
