The new Zodias from Shimano boasts versatility and top end quality.

If its sensitivity anglers desire in a rod, then the all-new Zodias Bass Rods make their mark with Shimano’s Carbon Monocoque grips and super light and rigid CI4 reel seats.

Traditional rod handles can dull sensitivity; however, the CI4+ reel seat offers up to 130 per cent more sensitivity.

There’s a Zodias in the range for all applications from fishing crankbaits to spinnerbaits, jigs and worms so no angler is forgotten.

For casting distance and accuracy, all of the rod blanks feature Hi-Power X that eliminates any blank twist. Hi-Power X is a unique process that’s blended into lightweight blanks, with carbon tape added in a 45-degree ‘X’ pattern that provides what’s called ‘Tortional Rigidity’ that prevents the blank twisting during the cast.
