The Shimano Vanford Spinning Reels are a new line-up of high-performance, lightweight spinning reels that replace the recently discontinued Stradic CI4+. The Vanford is built around the same CI4+ frame as its predecessor but now uses a MagnumLite (MGL) spool for lower rotational spool inertia, which in turn offers an incredibly quick response in critical situations like hook setting and tense fish-fights. 

The reel also has Long Stroke Spool technology to increase casting distance while producing a smoother line lay on the spool during retrieval. SilentDrive and MicroModule Gear II technologies combine to produce a new level of smooth rotational performance while reducing overall reel vibration. X-Protect technology and water-channeling construction enhance Vanford’s water resistance and overall durability - making it suitable for inshore saltwater and estuary fishing.

Available in a wide range of sizes, from an ultra-light 500 size perfect for trout, panfish, or ice fishing all the way up to a 5000 suitable for saltwater flats fishing.

Vanford spinning reels

Over the last 20 years, I’ve used Stradic spinning reels. I wanted to upgrade; these were recommended to me by the local tackle store. I haven’t used them yet; lakes here are frozen. Am looking
forward to Spring to start smallmouth fishing. I paired these reels with Phoenix
feather spinning rods; Sweet

Shimano Vanford Spinning Reel

I recently purchased the Shimano Vanford VFC3000 Spinning Reel and I absolutely love it. It's extremely smooth and the casts are amazing. I would definitely recommend it.

Smoothest reel I own

I have loved my Diana BG series spinning reels since I laid eyes on them but this new Vanford C5000XG is as smooth as silk. When I need to retire my Diawa’s this reel will be my new go to!
