Zodias - Crankbait Rods

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried one of these out?  If you did, how is it? I was contemplating of getting one as I wanted a 7' medium to replace my 6'6" medium Clarus Crankbait rod.

I have the 6'10" medium and it's one of the best rods I've ever owned. There are two things that stood out to me when I handled one. 

First, the reel seat is the Ci4+ material. Some guys like it, some don't, but it fit my hands and felt excellent paired with my Curado.

Secondly the build quality is very good. Their Hi-Power X construction isn't just a marketing gimmick, I noticed significantly further and more accurate casts than my Crucial gave me.

I'd bet you'd like the rod. If possible, take your reel with you to the store and see if they fit together in your hand good, that'll tell you a lot.

Hey Preytorien,

i actually bought my first Zodias, the Medium 6'10.  I totally agree with your assessment.  I paired it with a Citica G6, had a weightless super fluke on and i was amazed how easy it was to cast.  Verrrry smooth!  I actually like it over my Gen 1 Cumaras.  I'm going to pick up a few more.  

 

The reason I asked about the glass rod, wondered how the ne CB rods feel.  Normally don't like glass.  I really liked the TC4 rods, wondered if they performed the same.

I heard from another guy that instead of just sticking a glass blank on the rod they used the same construction technique on them. Tackle Tour did a preview of them saying they use the same hi-power X blank but they incorporated glass into it for the softer action but it still maintains the same properties as the full graphite models.

Thanks sounds like I will like it.
