We know you fish hard, so titanium was the best choice of material to hold up in both strength and durability. A new skirted spool offers you huge line capacity and foul-proof line management. New, longer handle and machined power knob help to maximize the power and strength of this new Van Staal reel – even when using braided fishing lines.
The VSB100 holds 320 yards of 20# braid, VSB150 holds 330 yards of 30# braid, VSB200 holds 400 yards of 40# braid and the VSB250 holds 490 yards of 50# braid. Use monofilament or braided line and know that for its size, no competitive reel comes close to offering the same line capacity – or strength.
Van Staal's new, over-sized anti-reverse clutch proved to be so strong in our test lab, that it had our engineers cheering in amazement. This is by far the strongest clutch bearing ever used in a spinning reel.
Like every Van Staal spin reel, these new bail reels are machined out of aircraft grade 6061-T6511 aluminum, and use stainless steel gears, titanium-nitride center shafts. Machined aluminum and brass are all used to construct the highest-performing, most durable saltwater reels on the planet. Also, just like every Van Staal spin reel, these are sealed water tight to keep sand, surf and corrosion out.
