The Shimano Expride has been a best seller for years now and with the technology that is loaded into this rod, it isn't going anywhere. The Expride A rods are equipped with Shimano’s High Power X, a wrapping system and strengthens the rod and increases the sensitivity. This “X” shaped pattern prevents the blank from twisting and distorting. Additionally, the Expride A rods feature semi-micro guides to decrease weight and keep the action of the rod. All of these features are focused on the overall goal of making the most balanced rod available.
Shimano Expride A Casting Rod Features:
- CI4+ Reel Seat: Lighter and higher strength than conventional resin material, CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4 material. 2.5 times stiffer than the original and increases sensitivity and reduces weight.
- Hi-Power X Construction: The blank's outermost layer is diagonally wrapped with carbon tape, forming an array of "X" shapes. This construction results in more precise rod actions, enhanced overall strength, and added twist resistance. Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control.
