Shimano’s legendary rod series, fully renewed in 2022 as the Expride B series, is renowned among bass anglers worldwide for its incredible blend of cutting-edge features, precisely tuned actions, and trusted performance.
The Expride blanks have been improved upon with the addition of Shimano’s Hi-Power X technology, which utilizes a crisscross X carbon weave pattern on the blank for more precise action and crisp control with added power and twist resistance. Delivering up to 30% more sensitivity, the innovative, lightweight hollow carbon monocoque shaft dramatically increases the transfer of vibrations through the rod for superior transmission of bites and bottom makeup.
Outfitted with world-class Fuji components, Expride B BFS rods utilize high-quality SiC guide rings that deliver an incredibly smooth casting experience with outstanding heat dissipation, resulting in increased casting distances, increased sensitivity, and more durable guide rings. The custom Shimano Ci4 reel seat offers excellent sensitivity and is paired with a premium cork rear grip for all-day comfort.
Equally at home with the urban angler, the weekend warrior, or the avid tournament angler, the Expride B BFS rods are the next chapter in Shimano’s legendary legacy in the sport of bait finesse.
