    Product Description

    Shimano JDM Zodias Spinning Rods

    The Shimano Zodias Spinning Rods are pretty well unbeatable in the lightweight spinning and casting category. Versatility is the name of the game here and indeed the intention of Shimano with the Zodias range. Well, deliver they have. And we challenge any angler to put their brand loyalty aside and judge a better product in this category.

    Land or boat, artificial or flesh baits, the Shimano Zodias presents an inshore go anywhere do anything master rod. The combination of Ci4+ reel seats, Fuji Silicon tip and Fast to extra fast actions make these guys super sensitive. The angler can easily distinguish between touches with structure and snags, contact with the contours of the river bed and bites, touches and the most cautious of enquiries. While it sounds highly strung, it’s not. In fact it gives the opposite feeling.  Balanced with a suitable reel, the overall feeling it imbues is one confidence and having all the time in the world.

    Casting is long and accurate thanks to the high tech blank. Fuji guides assist the line to peel of perfectly and the split butt provides an ergonomic feel and flexibility in casting. The leverage of the split butt and firm feel of the EVA grips allow anglers to play hard when a tough competitor is reluctant to leave the shelter or starts heading straight for it.

    Choosing your Zodias will come down to application. Are you casting from land or boat? Are you throwing light soft plastics or hard body? Would you like the option to drift live yabbies over sand banks? Are you looking to refine your rig as much as possible for a particular target species? Or would you prefer some general purpose options?

    Check the specs below. The 268L is for light applications while the 268ML will boost the weight a little. For casting, decide your preferred weight between the 270ML and 270M. Whichever way you go the quality of inclusions, technology and build quality are Shimano’s best. The Zodias spinning rods are outstanding spinning kit for the discerning angler who demands the ultimate in performance.
