As the name implies, Waterworks created the Vanquish reel with just one thing in mind total victory. And as the form follows function zealots they are, it all starts with the worlds smoothest, and now much larger and more powerful drag system. Delivering twice the torque of he previous WWL saltwater design, the Waterworks conical drag generates no stick-slip even at the line-snapping rates required by blue water anglers.
To support this kind of torque, a new, much stiffer frame was created one that transmits extreme loads with a simple, efficient and graceful structure.
Integrated foot/frame which, while stronger than a traditional fastened-on foot, also raises the center of mass of the reel, improving casting ease and accuracy
Machined from solid, modular stainless stripping arm on V12 and V10
