Shimano Vanford Spinning Reel

The Vanford is the latest addition to Shimano’s spinning category with this series being designed to become the ultimate finesse fishing reel with a super-fast start-up.

The Vanford series replaces the iconic Stradic Ci4+ and is equipped with a range of
technology upgrades that sets the Vanford apart. A lighter and more balanced new MGL rotor makes the reel 48% lighter to turn when compared to a standard rotor design. When combined with the Ci4+ body material, the Vanford is up to 9% lighter in some models. Now anglers will have an improved ability to finesse casts more accurately and transition to working the lure with ease.

Micromodule Gear II and Silent Drive are featured in the new Vanford and ensure the
gears align and perform with nominal resistance and minimal reel noise. Additionally, the Hagane Gear has been upgraded for added strength.

By combining Shimano’s water-repellent coating and specially designed water
channeling construction, X-Protect provides high-level water resistance without
sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation. This has increased the durability of the Vanford’s roller clutch and line roller to an IPX8 standard. By incorporating the new Long Stroke Spool design, casting performance has also been improved.

Felt drag washers are fitted to the 1000 to C3000 models for smoothness and Cross
Carbon drag washers are fitted to the 4000 and 5000 models for added power.
Featuring a classy matte black body with red trimmings, the Vanford stands out and
matches perfectly with rods from the Zodias range.
