Shimano Vanquish C3000-B Spin Reel

The brand new Shimano Vanquish was created to be the lightest reel in its class, with extremely low inertia and high sensitivity to comply with the perfection demands of the modern angler. An incredible reel. By using the unique Magnumlite rotor design, Shimano achieves 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 Vanquish.

Update from the light-weight carbon material Ci4. Keeping it light weight, rigidity and durability of the material under fishing conditions is highly improved. From this characteristic, we were able to reduce the volume and weight of the rotor and the body.

MGL Rotor
The redesigned Magnumlite Rotor delivers ultra light, almost friction free rotation, enabling you to control the retrieve with ultimate precision and sensitivity. Lures become even more animated when using a MGL Rotor reel, and the ultra light experience lets you feel every movement of the lure, the bottom and ultimately the strike of the fish, no matter how slight it is.

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.

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.

Micro Module II
State-of-the-art, gear tooth surface design and MicroModule Gear II, are further refined through Shimano's exclusive manufacturing technology. Enables seamless engagement and power transmission, without compromising strength, reduces noise and provides far better sensitivity.

Shielded Anti-Rust Bearings are similar to A-RB, but feature additional shields for the ultimate in protection

X-Ship stands for Extra, Smooth and High Power. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with SA-RB bearings (on Stella models) and introducing a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased gearing efficiency and higher power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation for less effort, even under heavy loads. This increases the efficiency of the reel, meaning it will stay smoother and perform at its peak for much longer

AR-C Spool
Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations, it has been determined that the AR-C spool lip design produces longer casting distances than a standard spool lip, while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off the spool in smaller loops during the cast, which means less slap on the stripper guide. This results in longer casts with less friction. A spool designed with a V-shape spool lip ensures the line comes off the reel in smaller loops, for longer, more accurate casting.

G-Free Body
G Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel’s centre of gravity closer to the rod. This has been achieved by moving the worm shaft oscillation mechanism 19mm up from the bottom of the reel to the top. By moving the centre of gravity closer to the angler’s hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhances casting comfort.
