The Van Staal VS Series Spinning Reels combine the art of design and manufacturing into a reel of uncompromising strength and simplicity. The frame, rotor and spool are machined from billet aluminum for unyielding strength, unlike other high-end reels that are made from weak die cast aluminum and plastic. Internal parts are made from the highest grades of metals available like stainless steel and titanium. The patented waterproof maintenance free drag system runs on two stainless steel ball bearings for silky smooth drag performance under the harshest conditions. The main gear and pinion are hardened stainless steel. The large diameter main shaft is made from solid titanium, and mirror polished for smooth operation. Choose from a selection of 5 different models, including the VS100, VS150, VS200, VS250, and VS300 to suit your particular needs. Available in gold, black and silver.
Sealed, Waterproof Performance!
One of the VS Series' most famous features is its sealed, waterproof drag system and gear case. Even if you are not in the habit of submerging your reel while fishing, regular exposure to the elements alone is enough to compromise the integrity of the drag system and inner gears. Anyone who's hooked into a monster only to feel the drag slip or hear that unmistakable coffee-grinder sound coming from their reel, knows how painfully true this can be. That's why when we set out to build the market's most durable and reliable fishing reel, we knew that drag and gear protection was critical for consistent peak performance. To achieve this protection the VS Series' design uses watertight seals throughout the spool, body and handle assembly. No other reel on the market offers this level of protection and that's why no other reel on the market will do for serious anglers looking for the ultimate in hard-fishing performance. Control the Fight - Land The Fish!
For experienced anglers, the challenge is not always finding and hooking big fish, it's landing them. That's why the VS Series line of spinning reels is designed with a Main Gear that actually helps you fight and land the fish. Made from hardened stainless steel, the Main Gear will never slip or strip under pressure. The VS Series Main Gear is also oversized to provide more fish-fighting torque per crank of the handle. Translation: You control the fight ... not the fish.

Reel for Montauk

I occasionally make the trip to fish in Montauk in October or in the late spring, I have had my Van Staal for almost a decade and it is still going strong even with the heavy abuse.

Unbelievable reel!

Purchased the VS150 about a year ago and have used it for fresh and saltwater. Big cats and stripers in fresh, everything you can imagine in salt. This reel pricey but worth every penny. I will be buying the VS250 today. And dealing with Tackle Direct has been fantastic. Ordered the reel then noticed after receiving it there was a VS combo for the same price. Tackle Direct promptly sent me the rod. No problems. Thanks guys!

The VS series of reels are second to none. Totally waterproof sealed reel is fully functional underwater. Little or no maintenance is required, just rinse with fresh water after every use. It's worth every penny.
ProsWaterproof Strong drag Low Maintenance
ConsStandard handle on smaller reels isn't the best Slightly heavy

Prossealed drag and body is a good plus
Consi detract one star because it's not the smoothest.

$544.99 on special sale plus $15 coupon I netted this baby.....i own the VS150 in silver and love the sturdy construction, when offered this one on a TD special sale i jumped on it and just figured there are a lot of folks out there that do not like the Gold model but it makes no difference to me the reel is very high quality and proven itself.
