Shimano Vanford Spinning Reel, VFC5000XGF


Born from Shimano’s long cultivation of advanced engineering and design, the Shimano Vanford Spinning Reels are here to test the boundaries of spinning reel technology. Aiming to be the ultimate lightweight, precision spinning reel, the Vanford is built on the renowned CI4+ body and is equipped with a MagnumLite (MGL) Rotor to provide a feather-light feel with dependable rigidity. By having 48% less rotational inertia than traditionally constructed rotors, the MGL Rotor allows for extremely responsive operability in critical situations. The Vanford features Shimano’s cold forged HAGANE Gear with MicroModule II Technology for an exceptionally smooth retrieve that remains so throughout the life of the reel. Borrowing features like SilentDrive from flagship level reels like the Stella FJ, the Vanford offers and extremely fine-tuned, low tolerance feel that makes any fishing experience that much more enjoyable. Anglers can expect line management that is second to none thanks to the Long Stroke Spool that allows for a more efficient line lay, resulting in smoother, longer casts. To protect this precision fishing machine from the elements, the X-Protect water-repellent coating and water-channeling construction solidify the Vanford as approved for saltwater inshore environments. With a size range that covers applications ranging from ultra-light and ice fishing to freshwater bass and inshore flats fishing, the Vanford leaves little to be desired for even the most discerning tackle enthusiast.
