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.
- Fully-machined and sealed waterproof aluminum body
- Solid, nickel-titanium manual bail
- Sealed waterproof drag system
- MicroClick drag tuning accuracy
- Heavy-duty stainless steel spiral-bevel main gear
- Titanium-nitride treated center shaft

Fish with confidence
This reel is tough as nails. The quality is great, the X-line lay is perfect. I used this reel to cast all kind of lures with no problem. And of course, I don't have to take care of it as I do with my others top-of -the-line reels.

Simply the best
The new Van Staal VSX series is completely bulletproof. I've been fishing it nonstop for a year and it's great. The bailless system takes a while to learn, but once learned, it's a great way to fish. The reel is entirely water proof and sand proof, and holds a crazy amount of line. I can't say enough about this reel.
ProsWater/sand proof Bailless Improved drag and oscillation Good casting Made of top notch materials
ConsNot particularly smooth

Does the x wrap oscillation really help with braided lines or is the older vsb models just as good
It does help to an extent, but from what I have heard the difference in distance is not noticeable. In order to get better line lay on the older models, you just have to make sure that when it is spooled it has a "hump" in the mono backing. This will ensure that the line lays on there well and you won't get the dreaded "hourglass" shaped spool.
