I've searched around the forum a bit for information on both rods and have found some helpful information.

 

I'm looking for guys or gals with first hand experience with the Shimano Zodias or Okuma TCS. I am looking at the 7'0 ML Spinning models of each for a Ned Rig/Drop shot set up. I'd prefer to stay at the TCS price range, but could be persuaded into the Zodias. I can't find a single place anywhere near me that I could touch the rods so I would really appreciate anyone with specific experience with these rods in the spinning models.

 

Thanks.

You can get the Tcs for less than $100 at Amazon and Wal-Mart. I think you can get the zodias 20% off at Tackle warehouse too.

In my opinion, the Zodias has much higher quality guides and blanks than the Okuma line.

Thank you. The more I research it seems the Zodias and Expride are highly thought of rods for each price range.

I own both those models, and I absolutely LOVE the Expride!

The okuma TCS is a real nice rod but the zodias definetly excels above it.

I have two TCS and really like them but don't own any more expensive rods.  

What models do you have? And what reels are they paired with?

I have the 691MH and I just picked up the 701H.  The 691 has been my spinnerbait rod this season and I have absolutely loved it-light balanced, awesome taper for my style of spinnerbait fishing.  I haven't used the 701H much but I intend to use it for texas rigs and paddle tails.  Both are paired with Curado K's, which match very well with the TCS rods in terms of quality IMO.
