Looks good. I think the Phenix M1 rods are going to a similar grip as well.

Wonder if these changes will result it price increases for the new revamped rods?

These are going to be killer. I wonder if they are going to release us spec models. I’m hoping for a 176MH-G

Why all the red????
I wish they would have made it all black. Or maybe with a little silver accent.
Too much red for my liking.
The new design looks kinda like my first generation poison adrenas, but with alot more red.

Red AND just too much bling. I find them ugly as .... (and I like Shimano)

Likely just the grip, like they did with the Adrena.

new adrena imo is faster action and much more powerful than the old.

The new zodias rods carbon content is much more than the old model and is more sensitive. New model almost all 100% carbon content vs 90-98% old model.
