To be deemed a flagship rod doesn't just require the highest-quality components; that honor also demands unparalleled performance on the water. Showcasing Shimano premium rod technologies, the Poison Adrena series exceeds both requirements and is the ultimate high-performance fishing rod. The incorporation of Spiral X Core construction provides Poison Adrena rods with unparalleled strength while still enabling anglers to benefit from incredibly lightweight rod blanks that are responsive and sensitive. Engineers constructed Poison Adrena with a Full Carbon Monocoque handle combined with an ergonomic Perfection Reel Seat XT on casting models and Perfection Reel Seat CI4+ on spinning models to provide the ultimate combination of performance and sensitivity. Poison Adrena rods feature premium Fuji K SiC guides and a Titanium SiC tip-top guide to offer anglers a series of rods with unequaled performance and sensitivity.
- CI4+ Reel Seat: CI4 is a Shimano original material reinforced with carbon fiber. It is lighter and has higher strength than conventional resin material. CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4 material. This highly technical material is 2.5 times stiffer than CI4 and is used in Shimano reel seats to increase sensitivity and to reduce weight. Use of CI4+ for the reel seat also delivers remarkable stiffness for perfect reel fixation which results in better rod efficiency.
- Full Carbon Monocoque Grip: The Full Carbon Monocoque Grip is the evolution of the Carbon Monocoque Grip. A high-sensitivity grip made entirely of hollow carbon construction eliminates the use of EVA. This results in a very lightweight construction and enhanced sensitivity. Compared to the normal Carbon Monocoque Grip — which has 30% greater sensitivity over traditional handles — the sensitivity increases by another 28% with the Full Monocoque Grip.
- Nanopitch: Shimano's Nanopitch manufacturing method enables fine-pitch and high-precision wrapping of the molding tape during the blank baking process. Nanopitch technology tightens the tape to the extreme and provides uniform pressure, increasing the circularity of the rod and ultimately improving overall rod strength.
- 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 by high-strength carbon tape with this unique and patented Spiral X construction.
