I have had the itch to buy a new spinning reel and decided to buy a Shimano Vanford. I have been a big fan of the Shimano Stradics for years so going with the Vanford was a no-brainer. This is one sexy reel and I am a huge fan of the color scheme.
Shimano Vanford VFC3000XGF
What’s not to like about this spinning reel? It has 20LBs of Max Drag and weighs in at a respectable 6.3 ounces. It has some of the bells and whistles seen on the high-end Shimano reels like the Stella but comes in at a quarter of the cost. I am going to use this reel with 40LB PowerPro as a dedicated jerkbait rod. Good idea?
What would be a good rod to pair this reel up with? Please leave your comment below.
