Built to be the pinnacle of performance, the Shimano Poison Ultima Casting Rods bring Shimano’s JDM offering to the North American market and generously showcase Shimano’s most advanced rod technologies. Blending Spiral-X Core and Hi-Power X technologies, the Poison Ultima Casting Rods offer incredibly light blanks with increased multi-directional strength and added blank twist resistance. Shimano’s X-Guide system also unlocks the full potential of the blanks by dramatically decreasing weight and providing heighted casting performance.

Pushing the limits of sensitivity, the Poison Ultima Casting Rods feature Shimano’s Full Carbon Monocoque grip that transmits the slightest vibrations through the grip to your hand. The shapes were also developed by scientifically analyzing tournament anglers’ movement and holding posture to elevate performance even further. Pushing the limits of rod building technologies, the Shimano Poison Ultima Casting Rods deliver JDM quality that is simply unmatched.

  • CI4+
    • CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4. This highly technical carbon material maintains 2.5 times more rigidity than CI4. While improving lightness and rigidity, the body and rotor are further reduced in size and weight.
  • Carbon Monocoque
    • Carbon Monocoque grip is a carbon-molded grip that is lightweight with high sensitivity, transferring even the smallest vibration to an angler’s hand. The Carbon Monocoque Grip increases sensitivity by 30% compared to traditional rod handles and utilizes a hollow structure that eliminates unnecessary parts of the rear grip to improve weight reduction and vibration transmission.
  • Carbon Shell Grip
    • The Carbon Shell Grip is a next-generation grip structure made out of a hollow carbon structure. It contributes to the transmittance of vibrations to the hand. A lightweight, high-sensitivity grip that defies conventional wisdom.
  • Hi-Power X
    • In Hi-Power X construction, the blank’s outermost layer is diagonally wrapped with carbon tape, which forms an array of "X" shapes. The width of the tape, its winding angle, and the part of the rod being wrapped are fine-tuned according to the target fish species. The flexibility allows Shimano to adjust these wraps during construction for precise actions, enhanced overall strength, and added twist resistance. Hi-Power X construction delivers sharp and crisp rod control by the angler.
  • Spiral X Core
    • Spiral X Core is Shimano's newest and most advanced blank construction technology. By integrating Spiral X carbon tape construction with Toray Nanoalloy technology, Spiral X Core constructed blanks benefit from up to 10% more torsional rigidity and up to 15% more compressional rigidity than rods built with Spiral X. Shimano is unique to the market by applying high-strength carbon tape with this unique and patented Spiral X construction.
  • X Guide
    • Supporting the guide rings of the tip part is a one-piece structure frame molded with the latest material by 3D technology. Its beautiful shape combines strength with the calculated inclination angle and three-dimensional structure to suppress line entanglement. The tip guides are light and small. In the butt part, the Aero Titanium X guide contributes to casting feeling and casting distance. X guide is Shimano's original high-performance guide which fused lightness, and troubleless casting performance to higher dimensions.
