The Bail hits your knuckles when reeling ! I don't have really large hands . I need to hold it after my index finger not after my middle finger as I'm used to. The foot could have been a little bit taller. There is no click on retrieve? It's manual bail . I know this what Van Staal is known for on the big surf reels, a bail-less system so you don't snap off heavy lures. But, for a small reel that will be used with light lures I would have liked to have seen an auto tripping bail . I like to put poppers in motion just before they hit the water . Have to fumble around now. All small thing I know but it's $500 bucks!
ProsGood build quality .

The answer of question nr 3 says there's no bail less kit with the ones you sell,

but according to, there should be.

And the foot is made 6mm longer.

When will you be able to sell that new black 50VR?

1 Answer
The vr50 bailess kit will not come with the reel but can be purchased separately in both silver and black. There was a error in the video and will be removed. The foot will be made longer and the eta is still unknown.

I know that Van Staal VS and VSX reel that are black turn brown after sun exposure. Will the new Van Staal VR 50 in black turn brown as well?
1 Answer
There was a large batch of reels made that do in fact change to a bronze color due from the anodized paint the vr50 most likely won't do that.
