The Van Staal X-Series Reels are based on the same foundation that made Van Staal legendary for power and durability. A completely sealed and waterproof reel machined out of aeronautics grade 6061-T6 aluminum, with a solid titanium shaft, hardened stainless steel main gear and pinion, and patented waterproof sealed drag. The Van Staal VS and VSB Reels are designed for a lifetime of fishing. The New X-Series reels now have the X-Wrap oscillation system that lays the line completely flat, designed to cast further and allow for greater drag pressures when using braided line. The drag system has also been improved allowing for greater drag range.

  • Fully-machined and sealed waterproof aluminum body
  • Sealed waterproof drag system
  • MicroClick drag tuning accuracy
  • Heavy-duty stainless steel spiral-bevel main gear
  • Titanium-nitride treated center shaft
  • Titanium-nitride line roller

Best of the best
Reel does it's job and has never failed. Whether on the jetties or in the surf getting pounded the staal performs flawlessly. The reel retrieve isn't that fast but is makes up for it with power. The deep spool also helps a tremendous amount.

Amazing quality
This is by far the best reel I have ever owned and or used. A bit pricey but is worth the investment in the long run. You can use this reel in any situation, I have caught everything on this reel.

Amazing Versatility!
I finally found the one reel that can really be used in all fishing situations! What an amazing reel! It can do anything in the surf because it's a Van Staal and it allows you to fish light tackle with confidence. 350 yds/ 20lb braid and 30lbs of drag is plenty to fight practically anything in the surf and you can take it on the kayak or boat and go after the deep water fish as well. It's much smoother than I expected and I had a shimano twin power before. I feel this reel can go around the world fit every application and you will forget how much you paid for it!
ProsTough and smooth.

Perfection!
I believe this is the ultimate surf reel. At the present time, I own several Van Staal VS Reels and never had any problems. With the exception of line lay, (which is not really a major concern) and with a little effort can be reasonably corrected. My Van Staal VS275XP is a visual work of art. No machine marks anywhere, made with top grade materials and is truly water proof! And the (small) line lay problem has been corrected. Is it the ideal Blue Water spinning reel? Not really, but after all, it was designed for the surf and for this objective, it is absolutely perfect! I would like to thank Kraig Friedman and the other fine people at TackleDirect for bringing this wonderful product to my attention.
ProsSurf Perfection! What else can be said!
ConsNone!

bucktail/swimshad setup
I bought this reel for my bucktail/swishad/spoon setup. The reel is paried with 8'6 century slingshot--and would not pair the reel with any rod over 9-9.5'. My only complaint is the distance from the rod to the reel is limited. Be prepared to hit your knuckles when reeling if you like to keep your rod hand up high near the spool.

I got the VS 250 X series it does everthing that Van Staal said it would do and more. what a top of the line reel. I can't wait to use it on the Cape Cod Canal bring in those 40# plus striped bass this spring.

Worth it
This reel is pricey but totally worth it. Capable of any fish you run in to and takes abuse and just keeps going. Very happy with my 250 and it has been going strong all year.
ProsPowerful, good drag, good line lay, great for wetsuiting.

Do the x series staals have the hourglass line like the Vs series or is that fixed with the x wrap system? Also what is the max drag on the 150 size? Thanks!
1 Answers
Van Staal does not provide a maximum drag rating, but the reel has a strong drag system that is more than sufficient for any 30 to 40 lb. braid class applications. The line laying issues with the VS have been addressed in the VS X-Series. The VS X-Series reels will not "hour glass" the line on the spool.

Is the box a new Van Staal comes in sealed, for the protection of the buyer .So he knows it wasn't somewhere else before he gets it. The last time I bought one the box was in shrink wrap. Do they still do this.
1 Answers
Normally they come in the individual box they where shipped in from China, they blue packing tape will be unbroken, the only way the seal on a box would be broken is one if it was in the show case, or two taken out of the box to be spooled.

what is the max drag on the 200vsx
1 Answers
Van Staal does not publish the max drag for the VSX reels. The original VS series put out #30+ of drag. Van Stall is saying that the new VSX is capable of more and smoother.

Can I use a VS150 spool on a VS X150. Are these spools inter changeable.
1 Answers
Yes, you can use the VS 150 spool on the VSX 150. However, you MUST use the VSX drag knob. The VS drag knob will not work due to the increased length of the shaft.

I am looking to purchase a Van Staal VS-X reel, but I'm not sure whether the 200 or 250 would be better for me. I am using an 11' rod with 30 lb braided line for surf fishing on Island Beach State Park in NJ. What would you recommend?

The VS-X won't be out until late this Winter. For IBSP, the 200 will be perfect. We have a special going on now on VS and VSB reels-by reel and get a Van Staal jigging rod free!
