or 4 payments of $74.75 with Learn more
The Shimano Vanford is the ultimate finesse fishing reel with a super-fast start-up and silky-smooth winding. It boasts upgrades from the iconic Stradic Ci4+ and flagship Stella and Twin Power reels. The Vanford features MGL Rotor, Micromodule II, Hagane Gear, and Silent Drive. Its lightweight Ci4+ body construction is complemented by the new Long Stroke Spool design for improved casting performance. X-Protect technology ensures high-level water resistance without compromising on gear and rotor rotation, increasing the durability of the roller clutch and line roller to an IPX8 standard. The Vanford is likely one of the best mid-priced spinning reels you'll ever use.

- Ci4+ Body Material
- Cold Forged Hagane Gears for Extreme Durability
- Micromodule II for Light and Smooth Reeling
- Ipx8 Water Resistant Line Roller and Roller Clutch
- Long Stroke Spool for Improved Casting Performance
The HAGANE Drive Gear is produced by Shimano's cold forging technology. without the need for additional machining. This delivers a long-lasting smoothness, strength, lightness and power at the very heart of the reel. Traditional diecast, machined gears are less durable under heavy loads.
Improved Micro Module gearing, making the reeling extremely smooth.
XShip is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the center line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano ARB roller bearings. This creates more stability.
The HAGANE Body is produced from high rigidity aluminum or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, while at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is rock-solid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater efficiency throughout the reel.
Removed 'clicking' sound and 'handle play' and overall improved smooth reeling.
The new design of the Magnumlite Rotor produces unprecedented light rotation. The rotor profile, which was previously symmetrical, is now asymmetrical. The bail arm mechanism, which was previously situated on the same side as the line roller, has been moved to the opposite side. This improves balance and combined with a lightweight line roller, titan bail and optimum arrangement of rotor thickness. a 14% saving in rotation inertia has been achieved increasing sensitivity to previously unreached levels.
The contact type triplelip structure is introduced to the roller clutch, the pivotal point concerning water resistance. In this structure, the first lip prevents water from entering through the space between the rotor and the body. In addition, the special grease between the second and third lip where it contacts the rotor collar located at the upper part of the roller clutch not only resists water from entering but also minimizes friction resistance. Without jeopardizing the 'silky smooth rotation capacity', the vital feature of STELLA SW, exceptional water resistance, has been achieved to withstand the crashing and splashing of waves and spray.
G Free Body
G Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel's center of gravity closer to the rod. This has been achieved by moving the worm shaft oscillation mechanism 19mm from the bottom of the reel to the top. By moving the center of gravity closer to the angler’s hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
Shimano ARC Spool is a patented spool design with an angled spool lip. This design enables the line to leave the spool with less friction and in smaller coils resulting in longer more accurate casts. ARC spools are proven to reduce backlash and wind knots when using braid.
Long Stroke Spool
The long stroke spool design improves casting performance when compared to the previous model due to improved line flow from the spool.
C14+ is an advanced version of the original C14. This highly technical material is 2.5 times stiffer than C14 and is used on many high-end Shimano reels to increase weight savings. Use of C14+ for the body and rotor also delivers remarkable stiffness for better reel efficiency.
Shimano S ARB bearings are high corrosion resistant ARB ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt, or dust.
