Pairing with my VM 275 for heavy spinning jigging rod.
September 9, 2018
Light weight for it's size and power. Have it paired with a VM 275 for all my heavy jigging needs. Has big guides which are nice if a big leader knot has to pass through them for some reason.

VJS70-325 Spinning Jig rod
June 10, 2018
Excellent rod. Long enough to be able to cast jigs. But not so long that the rod will beat you up when fighting fish. If you need to cast jigs for pelagics like tuna, THIS is the rod to have. Components are top notch. Rod is wrapped in a nice subdued tone that will fit into any collection you already have. Very nice parabolic bend, with alot of backbone. Very hard to find this combination in other off the shelf rods. Buy it. You will NOT be disappointed.
ProsTop of line components Nice balance obviously thought out rod

I am gonna begin by saying that VanStaal is making a HUGE marketing mistake by not marketing their rods more. The vjs jigging rods in both spinning & conventional can't be beat! They are durable, look good, & kill fish. I have bought rods three times the price of the vjs70-500 rod and still it is the best for big tuna w a spinning reel. Cheers to vanstaal rods.
ProsDurable Looks good Fish killer

Van Staal Made a Great Rod
April 10, 2015
I was on the edge of pairing my large saltwater spinning reel with this rod or a custom. After much review and reading, I decided to try a Van Staal rod. VS's reels are tried and tested while their rods are not nearly as publicized. I will say this much, I am not disappointed. The rod has a lot of strength and fits a large reel very well. It also allows for good castability aside from the jigging aspect.

Great Parabolic Rod
February 5, 2014
This rod has a great parabolic action that really absorbs the shock of big hard fighting fish like amberjack, cubera snapper, or tuna. To get a rod with this nice of action and construction you usually need to spend $400-$500.
ProsAction, size, construction, fish fighting style.
ConsHarder to get snags out, but this is the case for most parabolic rods. Warranty is only for 1 year.

Is the VJS70-500 model suitable for pairing with a penn slammer 3 9500? Is this rod strong enough for LBSF? Thank you in advance.
1 Answer
The 9500 should fit pretty well on that rod. If you are fishing for blacktip or brown sharks this should be ok, but if you're going for anything more than that we would recommend a heavier rod.

I bought a VJS56-270 spinning jig rod from you in Feb. 2013. The line rating shown on the rod and on your website is 60-100 lb, however, Van Staal's website shows a line rating of 30-50 lb only. Why is there such a big discrepancy? Which rating is correct? Please note that the discrepancy in line rating also exist in other models such as VJS58-325.
