    Just got the Shimano Vanford, finally a new replacement for the Stradic Ci4+. Gonna use it for trout jiggin' Seems like a really solid reel. Looking at the specs, some of the high-end features from the Stella has made its way to the Vanford. X-protect, long stroke spool and silent drive to name a few. Can't wait to get it out on the water!

    It is a solid reel, smooth and loud drag. I got head turns a few times when drag screaming.
    What size did you get? It already caught plenty of bass and crappie for me. 3B0A17DD-2C61-4035-823F-164F0184668E.jpeg 106C9BB3-5595-47CA-BD9C-947D787DF40E.jpeg CE7861A0-08C4-4A35-B0D7-3128332E8A5B.jpeg
