What I do for a living:


  1. Wts van staal vs 150. Van Staal vs150 for sale excellent condition. No scratches dents or dings. Loaded with power depth hunter 30 lb braid. Completely sealed and waterproof. Very light usage. Maybe 10 times. $450 shipped. Van Staal vm 275 loaded with 400 yrds power pro 80 lb white. Used reel once on 2 day San Diego trip. Look up Alan Hawk’s review. Great reel with the line capacity and drag strenth to pull on big fish . Excellent condition. $350 . Box and paperwork included.
  2. 1) vsx2 150 in silver , mint condition , 635 shipped pp gift ,has one noticeable small mark on reel butt, otherwise looks like new . 2) vsx 100 in black, like new condition , 525 shipped pp gift, not any noticeable mark at all . get both for 1125 price firm. I will ship with usps priority 3 day’s delivery. thanks for watching my post .
  3. Does anyone know if it’s possible to add a bail to a VSX2 bail-less? I’ve seen info online for the older models where a bail can be added to a bail-less setup but nothing for the X2. I bought a 150 this year and love the reel. I’ve gotten the hang of the manual pickup but would like the option if possible of adding the bail on. Any insight or info is appreciated!
  4. Hello SOL Added in three inch “add a tube” I forgot in original post see pic. Paid $421 for bag, extra tube, and custom 6” BS sheath and $329 for pliers. So $750 together Selling both for $625 cash or PP F/F. Both items are 10/10 plugs not included pics are from today. Located 11730 Thanks SOL
  5. 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).
  6. WTS: brand new vanstaal vsx2 250B $800 firm Long Island NY
  7. Hey Everyone, Looking for a Van Staal VSX100 in black. I would love to see what you've got. Cash meetup or shipped. I spend time in SE PA and South Jersey. Thanks!
  8. I am not a reel wizard,just someone who enjoys and appreciates fishing stuff and likes to be informed. I got a chance to check out the VSX2 briefly at a tackle shop and want to share how I feel about it. Compared to a regular VSX out of the box, the X2 out of the box is smoother and feels more “free”, closer to a typical spinning reel. But a Important thing I realized was it didn’t feel that different smoothness wise to my newish VSX-200 which I only have used for 30 hours (got at the end of the season and used it a bit this fall when I didn’t have class,not alot of time but yeah) and I guess has “broken in” a bit. I found it interesting that the smoothness was a big thing but it really doesn’t seem that different once the reels are used. I suppose the x2 might loosen up more too, but I felt this was important enough to share. The 2nd thing I noticed was the rotor. I have heard alot about the rotor bending but from checking it out a little, albeit not in a shop squeezing the **** out of a reel in someones shop,but pretty firmly trying, the rotor seems sturdy and wouldn’t move. Compared to my 6000 stradic fj and a few other reels which I did squeeze the **** out of the rotor on the x2 is more than fine. I wouldn’t find it hard to believe under alot of pressure being its not the entire cup supporting the line roller just the “stalk” it would bend. But of course these are specialized reels so if you are a person who uses your van staal to its full potential, especially on rocks this is a negative for the loss of protection and on the chance that it does bend lifting a big fish. But if you are just a guy who walks the sand and walks out to a bar in shallow water the x2 is fine. As someone who hasn’t done anything super hardcore yet I am not opposed to the x2 for walking the beaches and getting a little down and dirty.Obviously the only thing we can’t know is how they hold up in time. I hope this is helpful to some people. Just my thoughts,opinions, and experiences.
  9. VS200. Serviced fall 2022 and not used since then. Loaded w 30 pound hi vis power pro. Awesome reel. I just don’t fish in a way that requires the VS anymore. looking for $650 cash or trade for vr75 or vr150 plus cash. Original box included.

  13. For sale is a mint VS200BX2, used this reel once and is basically brand new and have not registered it. It’s spooled with about 300 yds of 40lb PP slick.

Thanks
  14. Looking for these wrench/tool things for a Van Staal VR200… ⬇️ example below ⬇️ Thanks in advance!
  15. Van Staal VR200. Just picked it up after it’s annual service from Salt Water Edge. Had the following replaced: body cover o-ring, multiple bearings, gear shaft seal, handle sleeve o-ring, clutch housing, drag seal, one way clutch, drag disc, click pawl. Initial service in 2021 replaced main gear assembly after faulty seal issue, work done at SWE as well. Comes spooled with 50lb Suffix Coastal Camo. Includes spare spool with 30lb Coastal Camo, VS bag, original box and ZeeBaas hook hanger. Has some rash to add character. Reel was given a clean bill of health and is ready to go for the ‘23/24 season. $450 PPFF or trade up to an older VS200 or ZeeBaas and cash on my end, obviously. Shipped USPS ground. Thanks in advance for looking. ** Gen.1
  16. VM 275 spool. $75 shipped. Will entertain offers. Payment via PP. Thank you.
  17. Hey Folks, I just heard Bill Wetzel say in an Instagram post last night that some kind of new upgrade kit/parts (?) is coming out for the VSX2. I think others may have heard this upgrade rumor on here too. Wetzel also said that @VSCraig was going to make an announcement about the upgrade on Surf Rats Ball. Does anyone know anything else about this “upgrade”? Thanks everyone!
  18. I’m thinking about buying a van staal vsx, and I’m not really sure what size to get. I mainly going to be fishing off the beach for tarpon and snook. But I’m also going to fishing off a pier for cobia and big Jack crevals. I was wondering if I could get away with the 200 or even the 150. Thanks

  21. Hi Friends, I'm looking to sell my VSX 150. It comes with the power handle and is spooled with 30# spiderwire camo braid. This reel is clean, well maintained, but it comes in used condition and has some scratches and dings (see pictures). Still performs well though. Comes with everything in the pictures. I'm asking for $600 or best offer (shipped or available for pickup in West Palm Beach, FL). I am selling so that I can purchase a fly rod for local fish, and no longer need my striped bass slayer. Serious offers only. Thanks!
  22. This reel is in excellent condition. I haven't used it much since owning. When I first bought it I had it fully serviced by Zee Baas so she's ready to be fished hard in 2023... $1500.00 or best offer
  23. Hello! Im having a great deal of difficultly figuring out what model/pretty much anything about this reel. It was purchased around 15 or so years ago by my father and after hurricane sandy all I have is the reel none of the box or paperwork. 2495 is the serial number and I cannot find any other markings on the reel.
