  1. I am in the process of trying to buy 3 Van Staal's a 100,150,250 USA made Orginal or X-series model no preference. No Vr models. Any color. Would be willing to pay slightly more for gold even with the recent news. Need to able to ship! I have paypal. Needs to be 10/10 Mechanical, recent service would be nice not required. Cosmetics are not a issue, just no dings/scratches on spool lip etc. Orginal box/bag will be viewed more highly then just the reel. I am only currently interested in offers in which someone is trying to part with ALL 3 models. Maybe you have an old set sitting on the shelf or your looking to get out of the game and sell all 3 easily. Maybe I can help. Please do not post to make a single offer post, although appreciated. Not right now! I would like to see if this can work, otherwise for simplistic reasons I would go ahead and make 3 separate post. Once again please only offers in which you have a 100,150, and 250. Pictures are fine, but not required on initial offer to keep it more simple. Only by request, unless its not a burden.
  2. Need to know exactly what I've got here! I know they're Heddon Dowagiac 150s (5 hook models). I believe the boxes are original to the lures themselves. Any information, any help with dating the lures.etc massively appreciated. In an unfortunate spot where I'm having to sell off a large majority of my gear... so if anyone could give me an *estimate* on their value, it would be a massive help -- and dont be worried about hurting my feelings if the price is low haha Lure 1: Lure 2:
  3. Looking to buy a VSB150. Open to either black or silver Looking for a used one but would entertain the right offer on a new one Let me know what you have, what you're looking for it and if you have bag, box etc. and please include last service date and by who If you are looking to accept partial trades, please let me also know what you would be interested in. Reels, bags, lures etc. Located in Fairfield County CT if you are looking to deal locally but would otherwise need price shipped
  4. So I've had my Van Staal VSX 150 for about a year now. Ever since I got it though, I felt that the drag was too light. When locked down tight, I could turn the spool without much effort. I didn't return the reel and just fished it with drag locked tight every time - I know I shouldn't have been. I'm currently going through my reels for maintenance. In the process, I checked out the drag for my Shimano Stradic FK 3k and 4k and both have much more drag output than the VSX. I quickly searched to see if I could upgrade the drag on the VSX myself, but it looks like it's not as straight forward, because it is sealed drag. My question is... Has anyone upgraded their VSX drag? If so, how? Currently, I don't think that it has enough drag to handle spring stripers in the 35lb+ weight class - I'd have to worry about getting spooled. I still have about a month until the 1 year is up on the reel, but I'm not sure if VS will identify it as a "problem" since mechanically, it's fine... It just doesn't perform.
  5. Looking to buy a VSX 150 silver. I’m no safety queen so scratched is okay as long as mechanicals are good.
  6. Hello. I'm looking to sell or trade Van Staal VSB X-SERIES Bailed Spinning Reel. The only reason for trading/selling is that I'm not happy with the drag. I just disassembled, put some Penn Reel Grease on the carbontex washers and assembled the drag again. I am currently getting 10 lbs of drag right off the spool. I had a digital scale connected right off of the line roller. So the drag directly off the line roller is about 10lbs when the drag is locked tight and there's a minor scruff on the foot of the reel (you can see it in the picture). Other than that, it's in very good condition. I purchased this reel from Tackle Direct last year on 12/14 for $870 and used it only a handful of times. For trade: The reel $50 Cabela's gift card (if upgrading to a more expensive reel) + Cash (if upgrading to a more expensive reel) I'm not looking to reel underwater. I want a reel that's sand-proof. Zeebaas ZX2 (ZX22RB) Van Staal X-Series 200 (VSB200SXP) Daiwa Saltiga (SALTIGA5000H, SALTIGA6500H) For selling: The reel, bag, and box (all in the picture) for $575 shipped, or $600 shipped if you want the $50 Cabela's gift card as well
  7. Looking for used Van Staal 150 X series in good working condition. Color doesn't matter! Mike
  8. Hi i'm looking for a new surf rod and i need it to be 7-8 foot medium for a vs 100 or vs 150. I would prefer it to be a thin cork handle with a small butt cap because i need it to fit through the roof rack holder on my truck. I only want the best company's for my rod because I don't want to cheap out. i already have a 11 foot lamiglas and a 6500 spinfisher so i dont need any suggestions for a bigger rod
