Product Info for SHIMANO Vanford Spinning Reel VF500F
Sculpted from over a decade of engineering advancement and a rich lineage of predecessors, the SHIMANO Vanford Spinning Reel tests the boundaries of technology and engineering found in spinning reels. Built upon a CI4+ body for both a lightweight feel and carbon rigidity, the Vanford incorporates a MagnumLite (MGL) Rotor for up to 48% less rotational inertia than traditional rotor construction for a quick response in critical situations. The Vanford features Shimano's cold-forged HAGANE Gear and many of Shimano's premium technologies for increased fishing performance and years of durability.
Vanford's SilentDrive and MicroModule Gear II technologies combine to produce a new level of smooth rotational performance while reducing overall reel vibration. Vanford also incorporates Long Stroke Spool technology to increase casting distance while producing a smoother line lay on the spool during retrieval. X-Protect technology and water-channeling construction enhance Vanford's water resistance and overall durability - an important feature for a reel sure to be found in inshore environments.
From ice fishing and drop-shot fishing for smallies in the sweetwater to stalking tailing fish in the flats, the Vanford has no equal. A legend is born.
Note: The Vanford 500 (VF500F) does not include the following features: MGL Rotor, MicroModule Gear II, X-Protect Body or Long Stroke Spool.
