Rod Zodias Spinning

The hugely popular Zodias is part of the exclusive Shimano JDM range and combines advanced design, fast actions and leading carbon technology with mid-priced affordability. This visually impressive range opens up many possibilities for the serious lure angler.
Originally designed and developed in Japan for bass fishing, you’ll instantly recognise how suitable the Zodias is for light and medium European predator fishing. Light in your hand and wonderfully balanced, the inclusion of Shimano’s exclusive Monocoque handle enhances feel and responsiveness, transmitting every knock and twitch directly into your hand. Yet when you hook into a fish, the hidden power really comes into its own, delivering control and forgiveness in equal measures.
Shimano’s Hi-Power X technology lies at the heart of Zodias rods and increases the transfer of energy through the rod, for enhanced accuracy and casting distance, as well as reduced blank twist for better control when fighting fish. The inclusion of a Carbon Monocoque rear grip and custom designed CI4+ reel seat increases sensitivity, giving remarkable feedback when in use. Top quality Fuji guides further add to the quality of this high performance range. The ULS2 model features a TAFTEC ALPHA carbon tip for ultra sensitivity. From the lightest Ultra Light Spinning models, perfect for Drop Shot and light lure fishing, through to the Heavy action Casting models designed for heavy shads, Crankbaits and Spinner Baits, there are 7 Spinning and 6 Casting models to cover all of your fishing.
Danny Parkins - I’ve been using the BFS2 version for all my ultra light work such as NED rigging, small Jigs and cranks on my local canals and rivers. It has a crisp yet forgiving action which is great for the likes of powerful river Perch and Chub with light leaders! The blank splits equal butt and tip for ease of transportation and couple that with this versions great styling for the price, it’s a must have for anyone wanting to enter this genre of light lure fishing.

CARBON MONOCOQUE

Carbon Monocoque grip is a carbon-molded grip that is lightweight with high sensitivity, transferring even the smallest vibration to an angler’s hand. The Carbon Monocoque Grip increases sensitivity by 30% compared to traditional rod handles and utilizes a hollow structure that eliminates unnecessary parts of the rear grip to improve weight reduction and vibration transmission.


HI-POWERX_RD
HI-POWER X

Hi-Power X construction uses diagonally-wrapped carbon tape to form an array of "X" shapes on the rod blank's outermost layer. 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. This manufacturing process allows Shimano to adjust these wraps during construction for precise actions, enhanced overall strength and added twist resistance. In short, Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control for the angler.


HI-POWERXSOLID_RD
HI-POWER X SOLID

The flexible solid tip is reinforced with ultra fine carbon tape. This reinforcement suppresses power loss due to twisting without hindering the delicate bending of the solid tip. Cast accuracy, operability, and sensitivity has been dramatically enhanced by the application of HI-POWER X Solid.


TAFTECalpha_RD
TAFTEC ALPHA

SHIMANO’s TAFTEC α is a unique solid tip that realizes flexibility and delicate bending without reducing the diameter of the tip or its strength. The TAFTEC α tip is used throughout the Shimano rod range where sensitivity is an important requirement of the rods.


CI4+_RD
CI4+

CI4 is a resin material reinforced with carbon fiber that is lighter and has a higher strength than conventional resin material. CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4 material.The rigidity and durability have been greatly improved from original CI4 material while maintaining the lightness of the material, making it possible to reduce the size and weight of the reel.
