  1. What do you mean by warranty service ? Sending your reels to either placed does not give you warranty.. Only new reels are under warranty for one year.
  2. Perhaps his profit margin is not as high as the other rod company..
  3. I only service the reels that I use on the rocks simply because salt water will get in and can cause great damage. The VS reels that I don’t dunk I don’t service.
  4. Butch hates when US companies are charging an arm and a leg for products made in China and not rolling the saving from cheap labor to the customer. I won’t be surprised if his underwears are made in China.
  5. What are you fishing for from December to Memorial Day?
  6. Do you remember how smooth was your US VS out of the box ? Long time passed since they stopped producing VS in US. The line lay out is a revised model of the Chinese VS. The new model is VSX and it is also being built in China, just like the predecessor Chinese VS.
  7. Is Juno a good fishing location from December to Memorial Day?
  8. What do they catch in Juno pier?
  9. Sometimes new versions are marketing gigs encouraging you to buy the new version since you are not going to buy the same versions you already own.
  10. I have VS 150 SN 9xxx. There is not “Made in China” label on the foot of the reel like my other Made in China reel. The original handle knob was the US knob. I guess all parts were made in China but the reel was assembled in US. That a question Craig should answer: Was this reel labeled as Made in US even so all parts were made in China?
  11. Alan Hawk hates the old Saltist as well and every negative thing he wrote was not materialized on any of my Saltist after 6 or more years of reliable service in the Mexican surf.
  12. I see now that the location was changed from OK to NY. Read the service form. It was OK in the past. PRODUCT WITH SERIAL NUMBERS BELOW 7000 ARE REQUIRED TO BE RETURNED TO OUR AUTHORIZED SERVICE AND WARRANTY CENTER IN WEST ISLIP, NY FOR SERVICE OR WARRANTY REPAIR: SALTWATERS TACKLE, 939 MONTAUK HWY, WEST ISLIP, NY 11795, Phone: (631) 539-9422
  13. I am talking about VanStaak Service centers. There are not too many of those.
  14. I own both, don’t see any difference in quality..The issue with US made that you have to send them to OK for service. Local service center won’t take them (as far as I am aware).
  15. Was it a label error in the old one or the new rod is a new design?
