EFTTEX Awards 2012 - Best New Fixed Spool Reel

Shimano Vanquish

The Vanquish incorporates Shimano’s new Light Weight Concept.

The Magnumlite rotor is built of its new C14+ material, which reduces the weight and stiffens the rotor considerably.

The new C14+ material is 2.5 times stiffer than the current C14, and reduces wear to the internal parts. In combination with a Super Magnesium body, X-ship gearing system and backed up by 12  Superior Shielded A-RB ball bearings, the Vanquish reel gives excellent cranking power, an ultra-light rotation feeling, while keeping the needed strength to fish in saltwater conditions.

The new Shimano Vanquish reel is truly the lightest and smoothest spinning reel Shimano has ever made.
