The new 2019 VANQUISH is the flagship reel of the MAGNUMLITE series. The MAGNUMLITE series is about lightweight, light rotation (low inertia) and high sensitivity. Light rotation (low spool inertia) is achieved by the unique Magnumlite Rotor design. High sensitivity is achieved by the combination of Silent Drive and Micromodule Gear II. Because of the light weight and sensitivity of this reel, it is perfect in use for light to (ultra) light fishing techniques for species like perch, trout and zander. However, the Vanquish comes in many sizes and can be used for many different techniques and species.
The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminate body flexing on the reel while fighting a fish. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power.
The MICROMODULE Gear II has evolved with Shimano's unique manufacturing technology and a state-of-the-art gear-tooth surface design. The drive and pinion gear surfaces have been analyzed and updated from the ground up in Shimano's pursuit of perfection to further improve the smooth gear feeling and reduce sound.
X SHIP provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This increased support allows the gears to stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. X-Ship technology also eliminates the friction between the spool shaft and gear to further benefit anglers with enhanced casting performance and casting distance of lighter lures.
The basic design of the entire body and drive-related parts were reviewed one by one to reduce minute rattles, gaps, and shaking between parts down to the smallest detail. It provides smooth and quiet reel rotation.
The new design of the MAGNUMLITE ROTOR produces unprecedented light and sensitive rotation. The rotor profile — which was previously symmetrical — is now asymmetrical, and the bail arm mechanism — previously situated on the same side as the line roller — has been moved to the opposite side. Furthermore, the line roller has been lightened, the bail has been made of titanium, and the rotor wall thickness has been optimally arranged to successfully reduce rotational inertia.
X PROTECT provides high-level water resistance to the inside bearing of drive gear shaft with waterproof construction.
G FREE BODY
G FREE BODY technology has been developed to shift the reel's center of gravity closer to the rod. By moving the center of gravity closer to the angler’s hand, the G FREE BODY helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
The spool has a special spool ring shape. This creates a rectifying effect on the line and realizes both suppression of line trouble and long casting performance.
LONG STROKE SPOOL
The LONG STROKE SPOOL has a longer stroke compared to conventional spool designs. It contributes to improved casting feel and distance.
CI4 is a resin material reinforced with carbon fiber that is lighter and has a higher strength than conventional resin material. CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4 material.The rigidity and durability have been greatly improved from original CI4 material while maintaining the lightness of the material, making it possible to reduce the size and weight of the reel.
