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 world's smoothest, and now much larger and more powerul drag system.  Delivering twice the torque of our previous salt water 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.

V10 and V12 reels are available in a "closed face" version for those anglers who prefer only small porting on a rotating spool.

Other innovative Vanquish features include:

  • An integrated foot/frame is stronger than traditional fastened-on foot
  • Flush foot raises the center of mass, improving casting ease and accuracy
  • Machined-from-solid, modular stainless stripping arm on V12 and V10
  • Waterworks porprietary "Hard Alox" finish, resistent to scratches and scuffs
  • Large, ergonomic, self lubricating no-slip handle
  • Tandem roller clutch transmits higher torque and provides redundancy
