Shimano Rod Model



Shimano Expride Rods

Constructed using Hi-Power X blanks, the Shimano Expride Rods deliver the ultimate in strength and sensitivity with a minimal, sleek feel. The Expride Rods utilize a unique process to maximize strength and performance without adding additional weight. Shimano starts with a high quality graphite blank from which they then wrap with carbon tape woven in a 45 degree angle to add torsional rigidity to the rod. The result is an incredibly lightweight rod with improved casting distance and accuracy. The list of premium components continues with Shimano's new CI4 reel seat which utilizes the same material found in their CI4 reels - the Chronarch and Stradic. The choice of reel seat is another key factor in the overall light weight of the Expride Rods. The CI4 material is also an excellent conductor of vibration due to its rigid nature and aids in increasing anglers' feel of the lure they are fishing helping to detect even the subtlest strikes or pickups. The impressive list of features is rounded out with Fuji Stainless Steel Guides with SiC inserts; these are one of the finest guides and are consistent with the overall premium feel of the Expride Rods.

Shimano Expride Rods The Expride Rods are also unique for another reason. Each of the rods is a 2-piece design, but not like your traditional two piece rods which connect at roughly the center of the two. Instead, the rod handle and blank are two separate components which, when connected, form a streamlined single piece fishing rod. The rod can be taken apart easily making it an excellent rod for travel or storage. Very similar to the high tech Japanese rods which display a similar construction using what many refer to as the off set handle. The rigid blank slides down into the handle of the rod creating a very solid feel - not telescopic. Once put together the rod fishes like single piece without needing realignment or ever coming apart - basically, you really wouldn't know they weren't factory fused.

The Shimano Expride series is premium in every sense of the word. Displaying the highest quality components and design with actions that are precisely dialed in offering anglers the ultimate fishing tool to pair with their Shimano Reels. Anglers targeting bass or inshore species will find these rods to possess actions that are ideally suited or their techniques. We are especially fond of these rods for bass fishing. We offer the Shimano Expride Rods in a total of seven models - 7 casting and 3 spinning ranging from 6'4" to 7'6". Rods are subject to 1-year warranty covering issues with material or workmanship, not covered by Shimano's over he counter rod warranty.

Reviewer: Tom from Colorado  
I have four Expride rods and love them! Super, super sensitive, light in weight and can fish them all day long without any fatigue. Did I say light and sensitive?
