  10. WTS VS 150 Black, Low Serial # comes with 2 spools. Reel has internal counterweight and was last serviced before start of 2017 season. Then used for the month of May and pretty much laid to rest since. Reel foot has been upgraded to new heavier, improved version by Van Staal in 2015. Comes with Bag but not box...unfortunately that was lost during a move. The reel has a blemish on bottom of foot from sitting in rod vault...aside from that its fine and ready to go. $500 shipped paypal. Thanks for looking!
  11. Looking for a reel to pair with my 10'6 legend. I fish lefty and its been difficult to find lefty vs and zee bass. The vs150L seems to be too light for the rod and the 250L seems too big? Its my understanding that there is no 200L... ive been waiting to see if tackle direct ever gets a restock on zee baas and again i need a lefty. Im considering just getting a penn torque 5500 but i never hear much about them usually just the other 2. Anyone have expierence with the torque or even better with torque v. vs or zee. Pros and cons of torque? thank you!!!
  12. VR175 Silver Brand New - bought and never used - spooled with 30lb super slick pp - 525$ Shipped PayPal Located in central jersey if interested in an in person deal
  13. I have had an interest in buying this reel for a while. I have known this reel as the Trydent SeaProof, the Blue Marlin BMT, The 3-Tand Submariner, The RK-Sports Sub Aqua and now it bears the name Van Staal VR150. I want to mention that Van Staal has been good to me over the years. This is the 15th Van Staal I have owned (If I remember them all). I have owned every size and version except for the 300 size and the new X series. I have received exceptional customer service buying replacement parts directly from Tulsa and through River's End. More than once I was given "upgraded" parts without charge. I currenlty own 3 Van Staal including the new VR. I am also a very happy customer of ZeeBaaS. I have owned 3 and currenlty own 2. ZB has delivered exceptional customer service and support. I am excited I have some new aluminum bumpers on their way to me to replace my fugly plastic bumpers. I will post these when I receive them. I ordered the reel from River's End 1/25. They don't currently do web sales, but I think they will soon. I called them and ordered this the old fashion way. They processed my order and I received the reel today 1/26 - about 24 hours turn around. Pretty good people over there. They do have a few more reels in stock for those that are looking. In addition, they are a Van Staal repair center so they can repair your reel if for some reason you have issues. Their repair guy "Q" is very good. Back to the VR : Lets Compare it to a ZeeBaaS27 - Van Staal VSB150 - Van Staal 150N Lets get inside Deeper Even Deeper VS150 Bail - VR150 Bail VS150 Gear - VR 150 Main Gear ZB Body - VR Body ZB Pinion - VR Pinion ZB - VR Rotor Cup "thingamombobber" So what are my first impressions? 1) Don't sell your reels yet, this reel is not at the same level as the ZeeBaaS or Van Staal VSB/VS 2) There is a distinct "knock at top and bottom of shaft travel and slight wobble in the rotor (worse than VSB but better than VS150N) 3) The reel is NOT smoother than ZeeeBaaS or VSB, but is smoother than the VS150N 4) The main shaft on the VR has much more deflection under pressure than the ZB, VSB or VS 5) The finish on VR is inferior (even without scratches direct from factory) The Bad: Lubricant leaking from the main body/rotor cup "thingamombobber" O-Ring to seal body Scratches brand new in box: The ZeeBaaS and Van Staal VSB/VS series are not water proof. Both are very water resistant and require maintenance to prevent damage. I cannot see this current design being superior to ZB in any way. Due to poor pinion removal design on VSB/VS service is easier on the VR then the other VS reels. I will add a video of the noise my VR makes when reeling.
  14. Does anyone know of any sealed fishing reals besides the van staal that would be affordable for surfcasting?
  15. Seeing what's out there for a VR 175/200 in 10/10 mechanical condition. Please reply with pictures/pricing, thanks!
  16. Anybody knows when they will be available to general public? Saw one at NJ Saltwater fishing expo - love it.
  17. Van Staal VJS70-500 Jigging Rod Brand New never used with bag 200$
  18. Is this a possibility? Maybe I’m behind the times? Is the only difference between the traditional and X lineup the line lay fix?
  19. VS150, with new 40lb Super Slick Got it here in Dec 2016 but I couldn't find the post. I traded for it, but I rarely surf fish anymore. I would say 9/10 cosmetic, 10/10 operational (I never fished it, but just based on turning the handle). China model, s/n 18251 $500 shipped, $480 picked up (Parsippany, NJ) PayPal is OK I would also trade for a VR150 or VR50
