The Vanford replaces the iconic Shimano Stradic Ci4+…
The Stradic Ci4+ was extremely popular here at Fishing Pro Shop, leaving the Vanford with big boots to fill!
Luckily the Vanford is equipped with a range of new technologies that sets it apart.
Vanford keeps the lightweight Ci4+ body construction, but the new MGL rotor makes this reel 48% smoother to turn compared to a standard rotor design.
Micromodule Gear II and Silent Drive also feature in the new Vanford and the Hagane Gear has been upgraded for added strength!
X-Protect provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation. This has increased the durability of 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.
Here at Fishing Pro Shop, we believe that this reel will build on the success of the Stradic Ci4+. More and more anglers are starting to embrace ultra-light saltwater techniques.
Techniques like shore jigging and ultra-light drop shot have proven remarkably effective on many species ranging from Blacktail, Pompanos, and Kingfish.
