Not enough line capacity for False Albacore.

Plenty. I use a 2500 series fuego (high speed) as my primary albie reel. Caught albies to 12lbs. On a 7’ penn battalion.

Good Thread.

 

I just picked up a Vanford 5000 for Albies and more.  Haven't put line on it yet.  I can only compare it to the Sustain C5000 XG.  The Vanford is lighter and smoother.  My older Sustains are now obsolete.

 

It will be pared with a Century 7'10" 1/4-3 oz Weapon Jr Magnum Taper.  Fun rod.

do you know what the black plastic tool is that comes in the Vanford 5000 box?

According to the tech specs on Shimano's Japan site, the spool dimensions are all the same, size for size.

 

I have a C5000 Stella FJ, Vanquish FB and Stradic FL and the spools and handle assemblies all interchange.

Do you know the specs on the 14/15 Aero BB 3k/4k?
worm drive,large diameter spool,57 mm I think?
Is there a new version of this reel?

get the FL, cheaper and built more for saltwater in my opinion. Stratic FLs go for 160 now while vanfords are 220+

16086821028683174239320328480068.jpgGood luck finding one for $160.  Maybe a leftover FK??  I found Stradic FL 5k in Florida from Half Hitch for $229.

Thats awesome dude. You will love that reel. Some places sell them for as low as $160 ive seen for 2500. Not 5000

I really have no knowledge of that reel. Is this it? If so, still some on the Bay for sale.
 

Below that pic is the current JDM lineup. Shimano EU is also showing some different models...
