Let me introduce you to the Shimano Vanford Spinning Reels! The Vanford takes the Stradic CI4+ to the next level by pouring everything Shimano has learned over the past ten years to make an already great fishing reel even better! The Vanford is constructed of CI4+, Shimano's carbon fiber body material so it is extremely durable but light in weight. It features an MGL rotor which cuts a lot of weight out of the top of the reel and reduces the amount of energy needed to get the handle to move. This makes the reel much more responsive. Shimano added MicroModule II gearing that is strong, precise and very smooth. They have also improved the drivetrain to make the reel perform better. It's going to be buttery smooth, and a lot of fun to fish! If you're going to be doing a lot of casting then a Shimano Vanford Spinning Reels is a great option. The addition of the Long Stroke Spool will help you make those long, accurate casts you love so much. The longer the cast, the longer you can keep your bait in the strike zone. The Vanford is the perfect freshwater/saltwater hybrid. It is really a finesse reel that is outfitted with a powerful drag system. The 3000-5000 sizes feature a Cross Carbon drag system that puts out up to 24 lbs of drag at max! Shimano added a 500 and 5000 model to this year's lineup and both will be highly desired. Buy a Shimano Vanford Spinning Reel and go have some fun!

Shimano Vanford Spinning Reels are available in seven sizes. The reels are black with red accents. If the model has a C in it, that means it has the same body as the reel one size down from it. If you are looking for more capacity without increasing weight, buy one of these reels. The 5000 has a ball knob.
