Offered in technique specific designs, Shimano adds three rods to its 14-model Zodias bass rod line-up with the new ZDS170M-G, 176MH-G and the 175H.
While the current Zodias series provide anglers with rods designed to perform as needed with all types of lures – be it worms, jigs, crankbaits, spinnerbaits and jerkbaits, the new Zodias rods are constructed for specific lure and situation use. The 7-foot ZDS170M-G and 7-foot-6 inch ZDS176M-G crankbaits rods have longer reargrips for long-casting leverage, and include glass composite material within their Hi Power X blank for the softer action needed. The heavy power, 7-foot-5-inch ZDS175H is ideal for braided line applications, especially when making long casts into grass. A long reargrip provides added casting distance leverage.
All the Zodias rods blanks feature Hi-Power X construction, eliminating blank twist for both better casting distance and accuracy. Hi-Power X is a unique process to support the lightweight blanks, with carbon tape added in a 45-dgreee ‘X’ pattern on the outside of the blank. The tape process provides what is called ‘torsional rigidity’ to keep the blank from twisting during the cast – and with it, more distance and a more accurate lure presentation.
The new Zodias rods also include the sensitivity and strength of lightweight CI4+ material reel seats, plus lightweight semi-micro guides.

MSRP: ZDS170M-G, 176M-G, 175H -- $199.99
