Shimano Vanford 4000XG F Spin Reel:
Sculpted from over a decade of engineering advancement and a rich lineage of predecessors, the new Vanford 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.

Shimano Blackout 10-20lb/10-35g 2 Piece 7'9" Spin Softbait Rod:
The longer softbait rods have certainly gained in popularity and this 7'9"example is one of the best.
Designed from the ground up by the team at Shimano New Zealand, the Blackout range offers anglers class-leading selection of spin rods for finesse light-tackle fishing applications. Starting with a selection of custom-built mandrels, the Blackout features Shimano’s innovative T45 construction. The blank is built by rolling graphite tape at a linear 45-degree angle and reinforcing it with two sheets of graphite rolled at opposing angles. This creates a lightweight blank with outstanding recovery and sensitivity. Fuji Alconite guides have been used throughout the build, ensuring the Blackout offers the trouble-free performance expected by experienced lure fisherman. While a Fuji soft-touch reel seat combines with exceptionally comfortable Winn grips to provide the Blackout with a unique feel previously only found in custom built rods.
