Introducing the all new Van Staal VF Series Fly Reels, engineered to be the lightest yet strongest fly reels with 6 models ranging from a 3WT capable of targeting trout on your favorite stream to a 12WT able of taking down tarpon, sailfish, and monster GTs.
VF Fly Reels are based on the same foundation as all Van Staal Reels, machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and fully sealed and waterproof, creating an incredibly durable and reliable product. Van Staal purposely engineered the strength into each reel and then machined the weight out by using a unique pentagon shape and machining the drag cartridge into the frame. The sealed drag is uniquely supported by two radial bearings top and bottom with an additional anti-reverse bearing resulting in a reel that is incredibly rigid. Available in 3 freshwater models VF3LW, VF5LW and the VF7LW and 3 saltwater models VF8HD, VF10HD and VF12HD, there is a Van Staal VF Fly Reel to suit any of your fly fishing needs.

I own lots of reels, both casting and fly. This is my second Van Staal reel and my first Van Staal fly reel. The quality does not disappoint. Compared to some of my more expensive fly reels it matches up just fine.
