Van Staal VS250 Spinning Reel

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.

Purchase any of the Van Staal VS Spinning Reels listed below and receive a free $150.00 TackleDirect eGift Certificate, good towards future purchases. The FREE $150.00 TackleDirect eGift Certificate will be automatically added to your shopping cart.

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.

Hardcore surf reel!
April 2, 2015
This is the toughest reel I have ever used! I reel it underwater a lot and it has lasted me years now. It feels exactly like the when I took it out of the box and I have only had it serviced once or twice in 5 years, it's an amazingly strong reel!

This reel is built for hardcore surf fishing.
September 17, 2014
There are many folks with alot more experience than I who will tell you the same thing, this reel is fantastic for the serious surf fisherman. Here are my two cents: I wetsuit surf fish with this, so I am swimming to spots and dunking it regularly. Retreiving underwater, zero issues after two months of fishing 5 days a week. I pair this reel with my 9' and 11' surf rods. I've accidentally dropped it or banged it, no problems. I've spooled it with power pro super slick 8 and fireline, both work fine. Zero wind knots. Make sure you have the shop put the convex bulge in your backing and line when winding it with line for the first time.
Bottom Line: This reel is engineered to last. If you want to spend more of your time fishing and less time doing maintenance on your surf reel this is it.
So let's talk about price. Really VS is asking folks who are into fishing to think about their equipment differently. Spend more up front and never buy another reel, or continue to pay for bearings and busted gear that wears out in x months. Oh wait your reel was phased out, or parts for that are going to take time to ship, meanwhile you could be fishing. Is your time worth it? How about no more nights breaking down gear and cleaning, just rinse and send in to vs every winter for a over haul depending on how much you fish.

My favorite surf and big fish reel
June 8, 2013
I have had this for going on 10 years and this reel has been used on everything from long casting for steelhead/salmon & stripers on the surf to even using it for halibut/lingcod/tarpon/tuna & blue water live bait/lure fishing and has been the best! This reel holds so much line, is so smooth and tough even dunked all day long in the salt water surf.
light weight, tough, huge line capacity
the best just cost money but that is life...

September 9, 2012
I have not actually fished with this reel It has a very solid,powerful feel to it Very finely finished I did spool 20lb. Yo-Zuri hybrid nylon line: fairly even line lay on spool It feels a little tight(Drag and reeling) But,I,am sure over time it will loosen up Can,t wait to put the reel to the test I will hook a good sized shark(usually a Lemon) and see how the reel performs
Overall quality:appearance and build qualityVery strong!!
the drag is quite tight as received I was told it will loosen up over time
