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.

Van Staal VS150L is a BEAST
I bought a 2nd VS150L as a backup to my original. I've caught big tarpon, giant golden dorado, and big blues within the last 4 years without getting my reel serviced. until very recently I had to service the original 150L because I didn't have the quad seal alignment tool to tighten the frame of the spool which had gotten loose after the last 4 years of fighting beastly fish. I decided to buy a backup just in case and will purchase this tool (tool is included in VS Service Kit or can find in hardware store) so I will have it on me on future fishing excursions. All in all if you want to battle big fish having the confidence that the reel will perform with perfection and won't give out under pressure from the biggest fish then I highly recommend this reel.
Pros*Reel with last a lifetime *Beautiful design, super strong gears, body, and smooth drag
Cons*May take a little time getting used to using bailess spinning reel

This reel is super light and strong. In the fall I caught 400 10-15lb Blues and numerous bass to 30 lbs of the beach and jetty and harbors on LI and the reel is still like it's brand new. This reel took a beating and it is working great!

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.

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!

Worth every penny
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.

Do you guys carry the vs 150 in right handed model anymore?
That model is no longer in production and we cannot get anymore. If you wanted a right handed VS you would have to go with the VSX150.
