Heavy Soft Plastic and Hard Body Combo Shimano Hardrocker and Vanford 5000

This combo is one of the best picks when it comes down to a receptive light weight combo that casts like a bullet. It is an all-rounder that will perform magically on a multitude of species. It is a land based combo but if you know your way around a boat then it is an epic boat combo too. As a long rod it means getting your lure further from the boat, therefore your lure spends more time in the water. Another advantage of having a long rod is that you get your lure further away from the boat so fish are less spooked by the boat. This ultimately means you will get more fish. The rod is the Shimano Hardrocker 86H is a PE2 (20lb) rod with a 10-40g cast rating making it ideal for 90% of inshore, river and harbour fishing. It is also an awesome light combo to walk the beach and rocks with when casting smaller heavy minnows up to the 40g mark, and it will cast them a mile. The blank and grip on the rod itself are slim line and very comfortable to hold and the rod blank itself is very fast and receptive. The reel is the Shimano Vanford 5000, one of Shimano's lightest 5000 size reels. The Vanford 5000 is ultra-smooth to use and has more drag than you will ever need. The combo comes spooled with 300m of good old Power Pro 20lb, nothing too fancy, we choose it due to its abrasion resistance on snags and its longevity. 

This Combo Includes

  • Shimano Hardocker 86H 
  • Shimano Vanford 5000
  • Shimano Power Pro Yellow 20lb 300m

Shimano Vanford Compact 5000 XG Spinning Fishing Reel

The all new Vanford is designed to become the ultimate finesse fishing reel with a super-fast start up. Replacing the iconic Stradic Ci4+, this reel is equipped with a range of technology upgrades that sets the Vanford apart. Still drawing upon a lightweight Ci4+ body construction, the new MGL rotor makes the reel 48% lighter to turn when compared to a standard rotor design. Micromodule Gear II and Silent Drive is featured in the new Vanford and the Hagane Gear has been upgraded for added strength. X-Protect provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation. This has increased the durability of the Vanford’s roller clutch and line roller to an IPX8 standard. By incorporating the new Long Stroke Spool design, casting performance has also been improved.
