  3. Selling a brand new VSB200 X series. Purchased this reel brand new around July, then ended using my VSB150 and Torque for most of the season.

  9. You cannot list something for sale here that is listed on a Facebook sale group, as per the rules. Please do not relist these here. Thanks.
  10. Looking to buy a pair of Van Staal 7” big game pliers for the right price...
  11. Wanting to trade my VS100G (gold power knob not included) for any of the following: VSB100 Gold USA. VSB100/VSB150 Silver with cash adjustment. Will consider a straight trade if power knob and new drag knob are included.
  12. I just got a VSX150 on the forum. As luck would have it, I broke my 10' Airwave the first time I used it. Thankfully I bought insurance on it at Dicks when I purchased it. Now I have a nice little gift card to put towards a new rod. I MOSTLY fish NJ beaches but will make it to LI 1-3 times per year and up to MA 1-2 times per year. The vast majority of my time will be spent throwing bucktails, artificials and plugging (and in the summer put it on a 7'6" MHF St Croix Mojo Inshore for fluke and smaller species). Now I don't need an all arounder that can try to do Montauk and the Canal, but something I can use on NJ beaches + jetties, but can also be used if I visit family "Out East" would be ideal. As I just learned through experience, a good warranty matters, but I can also get 2-3 rods before I pay for 1 St. Croix legend. I'm looking at a 9' Grumpy's Sandstorm (3/4-3oz)... I held it at the show last year and was impressed. I also like the 2021 9' St. Croix Triumph (1/2-2.5oz) and the 2020 St. Croix Avid Surf 9' (1-4oz). QUESTION: Grumpys describes the Sandstorm as designed for NJ. What does the perfect NJ Surf Rod that mean to you and how do you fish in NJ? What rod/reel combination do you use in NJ (when not deep in the 24 hour soak #GarbageMan). What rod pairs best with this reel and allows me to do the most. For years I've almost exclusively fished IBSP (fishing with the family) but this year and in the future, I want to see more of what NJ has to offer when fishing saltwater from shore, jetty or maybe even pier. Let's see where this goes (let's pretend there's no budget, then work our way back to reality when we get some consensus). Thank you, tight lines, and happy Sunday!
  13. Was recently handed down a vsb150. I’m currently using it on a 9ft ande m/h 1-4oz 12-30lb. I’m looking for a new rod that pairs nicely with this reel for fishing from the boat. Not looking to break the bank I’ll keep the 9ft ande for the shore and eventually upgrade to something nicer.
  14. Van Staal C-Vex 912 fly reel with 9/10 spool. Made in the USA. It’s in like new condition, has never seen water. No box or bag. 400 USD Express Posted via Paypal.
  15. I like to swim with light tackle during the summer or when I'm down in Florida. The Van Staal VR50 seems like the perfect reel, but is it too good to be true? I would rather save the weight if I could by buying a VR50 instead of a VSX150. I know people complained about the VR line for a long time, and in general, they seem to have held up. If I want a light reel I don't need to worry about swimming with, is there really only one choice? Would cycle between St. Croix Mojo Inshore 7MH and 9' Grumpy's Sandstorm (Jersey for life).
  16. First things first... I wanted to say hello to everyone!!! This is my first time posting on SOL. It took me some time to figure out how to actually post content, LOL. Anyway, I've been wanting for a long time to get a VS150L with the right hand retrieve. I finally saved enough money for it and was ready to pull the trigger. The Van Staal website shows the VS150L so I assumed they still made it. However, when I contacted one tackle shop to order one they said Van Staal doesn't make the VS line anymore and the VSX line doesn't have any L models. So I called Van Staal and the rep told me the same thing. Now I'm trying to find a suitable VS150L substitute (similar in size & weight but doesn't have to be fully submersible, as long as it could take some spray and wave splash). I'm going to fish this reel on a 9ft rod working the shorelines of Jones Beach, NY ). I would appreciate some feedback, thanks.
  17. Looking to buy a used VSX200 or 250 in good condition. Preferably in silver.
  18. Trying this again. Looking for a good condition VS (post 7K serial) or VSX 200. Let me know if you have one.
  19. Looking to buy 5 inch Van Staal plyers in good shape to like new condition. I also have a lot of gear, rods,reels for partial trade if you are in need of anything. Thanks for looking.
  20. Looking to sell my vs300, it’s in great condition, never been fished. Comes with black VS bag. looking for $750 + shipping located in Daytona beach would be willing to trade for a gold 100-150
  21. Title says it all, what ya got?
  22. 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.
  23. I’m looking for a pair of the VS 5” pliers if anyone has a pair they would be willing to sell. I also have lots of gear to trade if that’s something that interests you. Thanks in advance.
  24. I have a black 300 with low serial number of 249, reel is in like new condition with hardly any scratches. I don’t believe it’s ever been fished. looking for a gold 100-150 with or without bail in good condition to trade. No lefty’s please. not willing to sell right this moment, trade only.
  25. Looking for a pair of 5" van staal pliers. Willing to buy or trade a 7" pair of the same pliers. Thanks in advance.
