They are completely lacking in the higher end rod market if that's the case.

That would mean there flagship rod is expride ](*,)

It has a 2 dollar reel seat on it :lol: . For all we know it's something Dave had custom built. Love how one little fragmented photo stirs such a buzz. We all got problems :big grin:

We all do have problems :mrgreen: but I don't think it's a custom rod because if u look in the video clips u can see the blank wrapped In carbon tape (meaning it has high power x or Spiral x) so it has to b a Shimano.....

A new cumulus would be nice, but I doubt that reel seat would be on a cumulus..

Agree a new Cumulus will be nice. Maybe add some Jackall into it, Poison Cloud. :lol:

I rather have Shimano releasing more JDM styling/build/technology on their rods. They already have G-Loomis for traditional American rods.

it would be super nice! but if the rod is in testing it may not be the final real seat on it so we can't truly judge it by the reel seat...

Looks like they saw our post and responded. :big grin:

Protoype Zodias rod? I'm thinking a $100 Zodias rod that will compete with Tatula XT. :crying:

Whatever it is, I hope that it has a hook keeper on it! They somehow missed that on the Zodias.
