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.
