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.

  • Sealed waterproof drag system
  • MicroClick drag tuning accuracy
  • Heavy-duty stainless steel spiral-bevel main gear
  • Titanium-nitride treated center shaft

I have had a can staal before and it wasn’t a x series and the line lay was horrible but on the series the line lay is amazing

Simply one of the best reels out there. Extremely durable, easy to use and can take any beating you throw at it. If your serious about surf casting, this is the reel you need. It will outlast every other competitor

Great workmanship went into this reel! Very tough fished with it all fall here in Cape Breton on some harsh conditions, fishing off rocks and long hikes. A fresh water hose bath after every use is all that's needed .
  • Excellent workmanship
  • A little pricey

Best All-Around Spinning Reel

VS150BXP is a work horse! Every saltwater angler should have this in their arsenal. This reel, paired with a 7ft spinning rod, proved itself time and time again against gator bluefish and cow striped bass.

Never a doubt in my mind that this reel could conquer any fish that took the line.

Been surf fishing all my life, now retired on North Padre Island, and have daily access to the Padre Island National Seashore, one of the top surf fishing locations in the world, 60 miles of driving access to totally non-commercialized seashore. The Van Staal, third one in my tackle, is the only way to go. Handles any and all that takes the hook. As my father told me, “only costs a little bit more to go first class.” Van Staal is first class.
Thanks to my wife for getting me this for Christmas, and she enjoys hers too.

the vsx is definitely worth the money. you get a fully sealed reel that can be buried in sand and still works, you can even reel while it's fully submerged. very nice reel for the surfcaster

I’ve been fishing it from the surf and pier and I have zero complaints! My VSX250 holds plenty of line and pairs well with my rods. It’s a beast!

Second to none

I fish on LI. From the pounding open beach to the lighthouse in Montauk. This reel is the only reel I trust. Yea it's not the smoothest reel on the market (because it has seals) but it's a friggin tank. There is a reason that dam near every North East surf fisherman owns on or two... Salty dunks, crunching sand from massive surf, drops and rocks this reel just keeps preforming. It was designed to take abuse that us surf fisherman put it through. All these people bashing the reel for (wahhhh, it's not smoothe, wahhhhhh it costs a lot, wahhhh you have to buy a power knob, wahhhh it's not made in the USA anymore) the reel was not meant for casual pier fishing. It was literally designed to take a beating in the surf and to just plain work. And as for outsourcing to China that is simply for production cost. 98% of everything is made in china. Don't let the fact that it's made overseas make you think anything less. You want a solid fishing tool, this is the best.

This reel, though it is priced very high, is second to none for serious surfcasters. It will never show wear and will not be the reason for a lost fish. ever. The bailess feature takes about an hour to get used to, but once you do, its super easy and smooth. I recommend buying a power knob for a more comfortable grip.

Van Staal does not make the VSX models in R/H retrieve. We just carry the older VS 150 models in R/H retrieve.
