Shimano Expride Casting Rods

Minimal material with maximum effect is the concept behind the new Shimano Expride Casting Rods. Featuring advanced, new Hi-Power X blanks, Shimano's proprietary Hi-Power X construction process utilizes hoop and axial materials wrapped with carbon tape woven in a 45-degree X-pattern. This unique process creates an incredibly lightweight rod with increased compression strength and power. It also greatly reduces rod twist, which translates in to vastly improved lure and tip control during casting.

Shimano further maximized the performance attributes of the Expride series with the use of a new CI4 Reel Seat. CI4 is the same material used in the Chronarch and Stradic CI4 reels, and it further contributes to the overall lightness of the the rods, while also increasing the sensitivity transferred into the angler’s hands. The Fuji Stainless Steel Guides with SiC Inserts are some of the best in the business as well, offering the durability and performance necessary to match the Expride’s advanced performance attributes. Available in a range of actions and tapers for a variety of bass fishing applications, the Shimano Expride Casting Rods deliver top-notch performance.

-Backed by a Limited 1-year Warranty covering non-conformities in material and workmanship. (Expride Rods are not covered by Shimano's Over-the-Counter service)

Comments: incredible peace of craftmanship! Light balanced incredibly sensitive. I'd rate is as good as or better than an orochi xx ...miles ahead of the cumara

Comments: Rod is unbelievable but i have no idea why they wouldn't use there over the counter warranty on this rod. It really turned me off of spending this much money on a rod and only getting 1 year Warranty and i am sure i'm not the only one who thinks that. so i just got a Cumara instead :) haha
