The 2019 Vanquish sets a new benchmark in fishing reels in its class.

Vanquish was created to be the lightest reel is its class with extremely low inertia and high sensitivity to comply with the perfection demands of the modern angler. By using the unique Magnumlite rotor design, Shimano achieve light rotation of the spool and the high sensitivity is brought about the combination of Silent Drive and Micromodule Gear 2. The combination between all these features enable a dreamy state, where anglers will experience seamless gear engagement and superb rotation lightness only found in the 2019 Vanquish.

Carbon Interfusion 4 (valence electrons) is a graphite body material that has been reinforced with carbon fibre. Lighter than Magnesium, yet strong enough to cope with the stresses of saltwater fishing.
By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with our S-ARB bearings and integrating a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation, giving a perfect rotation even under heavy loads.

Shimano New Zealand provides a TEN YEAR WARRANTY on all Shimano fishing reels, against defects in materials and/or faulty workmanship.

HAGANE Body means this reel has a high rigidity and zero twist. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the anglers actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.

HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of the reel and creates strength and durability. The entire cold-forging process is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and the result is precision durability.
