  1. I have a question about braided line on VR and VSX reels. Is there any reason why you would not recommend deviating from the published line recommendations? For example, will 15# braid cast better than 20# on a VR50 with marginally less strength? On the other end of the spectrum, will the small cup of the VSX150 be a problem for 40# or 50# braid when throwing artificials for snook or tarpon. I normally wouldn't care about experimenting, but braid is expensive and there's a ton of smart anglers who can answer my question and save me a few bucks. I just moved to FL so there is a lot of different fishing going on, not just surfcasting (who knew).
  2. Hello, all I am having a dilemma with pairing these tools. I have vs150, vs200, gsb1201L, and gsb1081m and lb. test line. I'm hoping this would cover the Southshore, Northshore open beaches, back bays, occasional Montauk, and inlets (specifically the 2 Southshore inlets). My biggest issue last year was reaching the outer bar on the open beaches (using a 9' only). I wanted the 1201L as my all-around paired with the lighter vs150 on 30lb line. Then, the 1081m with the vs200 as my occasional Montauk and inlet rod. Do I have it backward? Thank you.

  7. I’ve been looking through the bts forums and always keep an eye out for a used Van staal reel. What’s an average price for used: vs150 worth compared to Vsx150 vs200compared with vsx200. All bail-less Let’s say they are all in the same shape cosmetically and each been serviced to working capacity. 3 years use or so. Thanks for any help .
  8. Hi everyone, I am currently looking into buying a new surf rod and equipping it with a Van Staal. I have never before owned a Van Staal, and I am unsure of the size that I should get for my rod. The rod that I am buying is a 9'6" Shimano Tiralejo. It is rated medium action. From what I've heard, VS150 is for rods in the 9' range and the VS200 is more for rods in the 10' range. This stumps me because the rod that I am getting is right in between these estimates. If I were to buy the VS 200 I am worried that the reel would be too heavy and bulky for a long day of surfcasting. I am not so much worried about extreme drag or extreme line capacity. Because of this, I am leaning more towards the 150. Just wanted to ask everyone's opinions before I pulled the trigger on such an expensive reel.
  9. I've had my VSX200 for 2 years, had it serviced both off-seasons and have now decided it is time for me to go lighter as I throw a lot more soft plastics and finesse lures than I did at the time I purchased the reel. My reel has some minor love scratches but reels smoothly and the drag is immaculate. Reel will come in original box. I am looking for a VSX150 in a straight-up trade or I will consider a VS150 plus a couple $$/interesting plugs for the downgrade I will try to post some pictures later tonight of the reel and scratches and if not i can more easily email/text them to anyone who is interested.
