Versatile performance is the concept behind Shimano’s new Zodias rods series, an 11-model line-up designed in actions and lengths for accuracy when needed, long distance when needed, or when finesse techniques are need. The series – developed by Shimano and built by Shimano - includes six casting models in 6’10” and 7’2” lengths, and six spinning models in 6’8” and 7’ lengths.
“With the Zodias rods, we can provide anglers with one rod designed to perform as needed with all types of lures – be it worms, jigs, deep-diving or lipless crankbaits, spinnerbaits and jerkbaits,” said Robby Gant with Shimano’s rod development team. “While certain models will offer a higher level of performance depending on the technique, you can fish with confidence that your Zodias rod can fish any style at any time.”
Anglers gain further advantages with the sensitivity and strength of the lightweight CI4+ material reel seat, plus lightweight semi-micro guides. “These Fuji Alconite K semi-micro guides, with stainless steel frames as light as titanium allow us to provide the best balance so we can keep the rods light while still giving anglers extra casting distance,” Gant said.
