anode rod/odor

I could use some advice if you will. I have a 3 year old Kenmore 40 gallon water heater. I use well water and have a Kinetico softener on it. But the past year or so the water odor has been fairly strong. Can anybody give me advice as to replacing the anode rod with one of those alu./zinc rods??? Think that would solve the problem? Or I hear they have 'powered' rods that are better? Thanks,,,,,,, hope to hear back.

Have not heard of a powered rod but taking it out, cutting it off flush with the bottom of the plug and putting the plug back in should take care of the odor if it isn't sulphur in the well water.
