The Van Staal X-Series Reels are based on the same foundation that made Van Staal legendary for power and durability. A completely sealed and waterproof reel machined out of aeronautics grade 6061-T6 aluminum, with a solid titanium shaft, hardened stainless steel main gear and pinion, and patented waterproof sealed drag. The Van Staal VS and VSB Reels are designed for a lifetime of fishing. The New X-Series reels now have the X-Wrap oscillation system that lays the line completely flat, designed to cast further and allow for greater drag pressures when using braided line. The drag system has also been improved allowing for greater drag range.

I believe this is the ultimate surf reel. At the present time, I own several Van Staal VS Reels and never had any problems. With the exception of line lay, (which is not really a major concern) and with a little effort can be reasonably corrected. My Van Staal VS275XP is a visual work of art. No machine marks anywhere, made with top grade materials and is truly water proof! And the (small) line lay problem has been corrected. Is it the ideal Blue Water spinning reel? Not really, but after all, it was designed for the surf and for this objective, it is absolutely perfect! I would like to thank Kraig Friedman and the other fine people at TackleDirect for bringing this wonderful product to my attention.
