Shimano Zodias Spinning Rod ZDS268ML 6'8" Medium Light. Anyone have a opinion about this rod for finesse applications? Thanks.

I fished the 7 foot ML and have nothing bad to say about it. Good at everything master of none, one of the most versatile rods at the 200 price point.

I have the 7 foot medium fast it’s very light, my most sensitive rod and it’s strong I highly recommend it!

Nice rod but a lot of choices at the $200 price point. Get it on sale if you can.

I owned a Shimano Cumara fist gen with a lifetime warranty, I broke the tip of the rod and called Shimano for a replacement Paid $100 and they replaced it with the Zodias(button your shirt Shimano your heart is falling out) I can flat out tell you any semblance of the Zodias to the Cumara is purely coincidental.  With that being said there is, in my opinion better rods in the $200 price point.  I would put the St Croix Avid in that category, and can tell you if something happens to a St Croix rod they will work with you to make you happy,  Dobyns ChampionXP is another line of rods and if your a vet they'll give you 10% off.  Don't know what's happened with Shimano over the last yr but I find them difficult to deal with.

I fished the ML as a ned rig rod for a year or so. The Zodias is a great blank but I never did care for the reel seat on the spinning rods.
