Shimano have included the JDM (Japanese-Domestic-Market) Vanquish F in their new UK catalogue. The Vanquish F is a rival to the popular Shimano Stella series.
The Vanquish will be launched in the UK in two options the C3000 and the 4000. The Vanquish utilises Shimano’s own C14+ material in the Rotor. Its interesting to bear in mind that this material was not been used in the current Stella FE. Indeed the Vanquish F 3000 is lighter than the Stella 3000 FE. The Shimano Rarenium series reels which use the C14 material continue to be very popular in the UK both from performance and competitive pricing. Only time will tell if the introduction of the C14+ will put the Vanquish F up there amongst the favourites of the Shimano fans. Spec wise both the Vanquish F models cosmetically look the same, both share the same Magnesium Alloy body of the Stella, and both the Vanquish F reels feature Aluminium spools and handles. Weight does make a difference to those that consider it when deciding on reels, for a comparison take a look for yourself: Stella FE 3000 – 225g Rarenium 3000SFA – 200g Vanquish F C3000 – 195g Its a close call on weight and its up to the angler to decide if the Vanquish is worth the extra price up from the Rarenium but for those that prefer the more high end tackle the Vanquish could be what you’re waiting for.
