Producing top quality fishing reels since the 1970s, Shimano is a Japanese based company with strong environmental ethics. Its product range is comprehensive, with everything from luggage to line in its portfolio.
The Shimano Vanquish FB Reel is the flagship reel of the quick release series from Shimano. Lightweight, light rotation (low inertia) and high sensitivity, the Vanquish FB is perfect in use for light to (ultra) light fishing techniques for species like perch, trout and zander.
The body of the reel is made from magnesium with a Magnumlite Rotor design that offers a light rotation with a highly sensitive feel. This combination is thanks to the Silent Drive and Micromodule Gear II technology. The Vanquish comes in two sizes and can be used for many different techniques and species. Choose from the 2500S FB or the C3000 FB. Both sizes sport 11+1 bearings and have a waterproof drag that prevents early erosion.
The spool material is cold-forged, long-stroke, aluminium which is both strong and very light. There is no extra spool with this reel but it does come with a screw-in handle which is made from one piece CI4+.
