Shimano reaches ‘pinnacle’ in predator rod design


When an iconic rod brand like Shimano says its latest launch is a ‘pinnacle’ of high performance predator rod design then you pay extra attention.

The new POISON ADRENA combines advanced carbon technology with Shimano’s Ultimate Blank Design (UBD) philosophy and is said to have been designed for anglers who refuse to compromise on excellence and performance.

Standing tall as Shimano’s flagship spinning range, the POISON ADRENA is said to represent the ‘zenith of rod design’. “Meticulously crafted with an unwavering commitment to perfection, it embodies the marriage of lightness, sensitivity and hidden power,” says Shimano. “The result is a sensory experience that transcends expectations, appealing to those who refuse to compromise on anything.”

It is the use of the latest UBD philosophy which Shimano says sets it apart. “This looks at every part of the rod individually to maximise weight and response, while maintaining strength and ensuring unparalleled performance in every cast and retrieve,” adds Shimano.

“The ability of the rod to recover instantly sets a new benchmark for excellence, providing anglers with a beautifully crisp and predictably reassuring experience when casting, working lures or playing fish.”

The POISON ADRENA showcases Shimano’s premium rod technologies, including the incorporation of Spiral-X Core construction within the high modulus carbon blank which delivers unmatched strength without sacrificing key elements of lightness, responsiveness and sensitivity. To further elevate performance, the rod features a full carbon Monocoque handle, coupled with the ergonomic Perfection C14+ Reel Seat XT on casting models and the Perfection C14+ Reel Seat on spinning versions.

“Both designs offer an unparalleled lightweight and ergonomic combination for maximum feedback. As befitting a rod of such pedigree, it also features premium Shimano X guides, ensuring the ultimate in line management. Every aspect of this exceptional rod has been meticulously engineered to meet the exacting standards of the most dedicated and demanding anglers,” adds Shimano.

“A testament to the brand’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of rod design and innovation to new heights, Shimano invites anglers who refuse to compromise on excellence to experience the sensation of fishing with the new POISON ADRENA.”
