  1. Hello, I’m looking for van Staal and gloomis patches for one of my packs. Hopefully it has Velcro but if not that’s not the end of the world. Shoot me a message if you have it. Thank you
  2. Hi everyone im pretty new to the forum, i joined because i wanted some more info on my vr50. I live in europe austria to be exact and sending in reels for service isnt something i would do i always serviced reels myself which isnt a problem at all im a mechanical and electrical technitian and i know quite a bit about stuff like that i service all my reels mostly high end shimanos like twinpowers and a vanquish, those are not hard to service yourself and Van Staals are even easier. The only problem is that there dont seem to be any self service kits and i wanted to ask if someone knows the seal and bearing dimentions, i could check everything myself once i need it but that means that i have to wait to get all the right bearings and seals before i can put it back together and im really trying not to do that. The other thing is grease, i know van staals use rheolube, type 797, 362HB and maybe NC346 for some reels ? I think the lighter one is used for the VR50 gears and the thicker really sticky type for parts like the handle thread, which would not be a problem if the grease at the handle thread is not the original one, atleast as long as it doesnt damage the seals. I have tried a bunch of different grease like most shimano grease types, daiwa grease and quantum hot sauce but i have found that the XR1 penn grease is by far the best, you have to use only a tiny bit on really small reels otherwise there is a bit too much resistance but other than that its perfect for mid sized or bigger reels. The XR1 penn grease could hurt seals a bit in the long run but that should not be a problem if i can get seals for it, but again for that i need to know the seal dimentions. I would not be able to buy the original rheolube since its already way too overpriced as is and with shipping and customs it would be like 100$ or more and thats not something im going to do. The only seals i would need to change are the main shaft seal, line roller unit seals and the handle shaft seal, i already had some orings that fit the housing covers (1x40mm oring), and i probably have the other orings needed for the VR50 they are also the same material as the original orings. I would really apreciate it if someone could help me out with the seal dimentions
  3. I had big plans this year to do more surf/jetty fishing rather than party boats, but things have come up and my VRs are just sitting in my closet. I don't think I will have much time to fish from shore in the foreseeable future, so I'm letting these go. I will most likely regret it, but that's how it usually goes. The reel and spools are in excellent condition. I took it out once. I do not have the stock handle. I destroyed it while installing the power handle. I'm including everything that was included in the original box (Minus the stock handle) VR50 spool has 20 lb Sufix 832 VR75 spool has 30 lb Sufix 832 I bought the VR75 and spare VR50 spool (Yes, they are interchangeable) I'm accepting Paypal and letting it go for $500 shipped.

  6. New to surfcasting. Wasn’t around when previous new generations of Van Staals have launched. If a new gen VSX comes out will the current new VSX’s go on some kind of sale from shops or prices will stay the same?

  15. For sale VS 200B. 3 digit serial number. Was sent back to Van staal in Oklahoma for service and repairs 5-7 years ago and never fished. I cant find the paper work of exact time frame I do have an email out to VS to see if I can get a copy of the repair order(will post if received). Reel has some scuffs but is in perfect working order. These reels have a lifetime warranty if they are sent in every year for service. I’m getting out of surf fishing and have been selling off most of my gear. Looking for 600.00 OBO. No box or bag. Loaded with spider wire stealth 40lb that has never seen water. In RI but will ship for 25.00 w/insurance.
  16. For sale one VS300 black. 94** serial number. Good shape has few scuffs but great working condition. Would recommend having service done. Purchased reel secondhand and has never been done during my ownership. 550.00. Would like to have in person pickup in RI.
  17. For sale one VS100 silver. Very good condition. Serial 14***. 450.00. Pick up in RI preferred.
  18. Wondering if any one else has had similar issues before I send it in for repair/maintenance. Firstly this is not a new reel. The drag knob is not able to be tightened down and more or less constantly spins making the drag setting pretty much nothing. The drag knob itself is stuck free spinning both clockwise and counter clockwise and won’t come off making it impossible to remove the spool. The knob seems to have a bit of play so I’m thinking it might be something with the bushings. I will post pictures in the morning any help is appreciated.
  19. Hi, looking for a vsx150, new or used. shoot some offers!
  20. WTB aBail Assembly for VSB150.Hoping to find someone that converted a reel to abail less and have the old parts laying around. Thank You
  21. I have an early vs100 gold with ss in the 600 USA made wondering if someone can shed some info on this unicorn of a reel thanks
  22. Just ordered this rod from saltwater edge. Planning on pairing it with my vs250. Anyone have this combo ? What do you think? I chose the 3/4-4 over the genesis 1-6 as I figured it would suit me better for SS Long Island.
  23. If you don’t have the budget for a Van Staal what would be your next pick. Comparison points besides budget would be a quality materials, dependable drag and mechanics, performance and rugged durability for surf fishing. Size larger than 4000 but not a boat reel. Plenty of articles out there but would love to hear from experience.
  24. Looking for a mint VSX250 in black with box and bag thanks guys!!! Meet up in Long Island area.
