  1. Hi all, I have a VS150 I purchased back in 2006. 2 years ago I noticed friction while reeling - the handle is sluggish and tough to turn. It is not seized; however, trying to work my lightest plugs is a serious forearm workout. I've sent in in to an authorized VS center for service in 2019 & 2020 and the reel came back w/ the same sluggish retrieve. I don't want to send it to a warranty center again, as it cost me money and the issue was not addressed. Has anyone had this happen to them? How have you self-serviced your VS that had a sluggish retrieve / friction?

  6. Selling a very lightly used VSX150S. Purchased from Saltwater Edge end of last season, only fished the back bays maybe 10 trips max. Never registered, I usually point out any minor imperfections on my reels but there really aren't any on this one. Its spooled with a little over 300 of 30# Superslick V2. Just funding other projects. Asking $600 firm shipped pp
  7. Selling a take off vsb150 black handle knob kit with rear locking nut. Recently purchased a used VSX 150 that had the vsb handle installed new at sale. I preferred the round version so switched out. I believe this should also fit a VS100 series. $48 shipped USA 48. PayPal
  8. Van Staal VS 150 Gold for sale. This reel was originally up for sale here but needed additional work. Just got it back from Van Stall factory service overhaul and is now fresh and ready for sale. Almost every bearing and bushing has been replaced and feels like new again. I am the second owner and do not have the original handle or box. Serial #4453.
  9. Looking to sell my VS 150 s and VS 200 s both are spooled with braid not that tha really adds value but the 150 is packed with a little under 500 of 15 and the 200 is packed with a little 500 of under 40 lb braid ... both reels were used for 3 months after picking up second hand .. not trying to make a profit just trying to get back what I have in them ! Nothing wrong functionally with either reel , just wanted to try van staal for a season . Asking 550 Shipped for each reel ... As for trading looking to go back to Penn so clash size 3 to 6 k or slammer 3 4500 or 5500 size !!! There are some extra pictures of the fish caught on them ... the king was on the 150 and tarpon on the 200. Thanks for your time !!!
  10. VS150BXP for sale. All but like new, only fished a few times. Only one tiny white mark that I can see (on handle side, see 2nd pic). Includes Van Staal Power Handle Knob. Loaded with either 20 or 30# (I can't remember) Blue Power Pro Super 8 Slick. $625.00 shipped with payment via PayPal or pick up in Lancaster, PA. Possible pick up opportunity in Wildwood or Cape May, NJ on Wednesday, 6/26 or Friday, 6/27. Sadly, I'm not surf fishing often enough to justify keeping.
  11. Selling my spare VS150L. The reel was serviced Fisherman's Headquarters this past spring. While there I had them spool it up with 30lb Spiderwire blue camo. Reel has an upgraded bailed knob on it. Since being serviced I would say it's been fished maybe 5 times. The reel does have some rash and scratches but functions perfectly. Reel is China made, external counterweight. SN is 28###. $500 cash, located in MD(20855).
  12. Looking for used Van Staal 150 X series in good working condition. Color doesn't matter! Mike
  13. I purchased this reel new in late December 2017. Used it for 1/3 of this season mostly for backwater marsh and some beach. Has very minor scratches (as any used reel would). It has a silver power knob on it, still have original stock knob as well, also have box and the black Van Staal drawstring bag it came with. Reel is great shape and ready to fish. $545 shipped and insured $515 picked up in Ma
  14. Hey guys so I’m looking at buying a vsb150 that was converted to Bailess. Does anyone have any idea how much a new bail would run for a 150 and how to go about purchasing it?
  15. Used Van Staal 150, black, bail-less. Great shape overall, small scuff marks between the spool and rotor from sand getting into the tight tolerance. This was my backup reel that has just been sitting unused. The reel is "tight" indicating seals are still doing their job. Braid included but should be re-spooled. Either add more backing or new braid (lost 50 yards at some point?). Asking $525 - local deal preferred (Bergen County to Monmouth County area).
  16. Not exactly looking to get rid of a Van Staal but I would like to see if there is possibly someone out there that might have a VS200 or 2 that is looking to get/trade for a vs150 (as you can obviously see). I bought this reel new ($739) w/power knob ($59) over the winter and have used it maybe 10x and feel as though maybe I should have went a size up considering how versatile I like my gear to be. We can discuss details further if anyone is interested. I would also consider trading along with cash for a zeebaas or stella. Thanks everyone! ****SPOOLED 2 DAYS AGO WITH 250YDS/40LB SPIDERWIRE INVISIBRAID****
  17. Selling this VS150 with power knob. It is in great condition. It's got a few small scuffs on the knob from hook hanging, and a few on the underside of the body from a little bit of use. You can see in the pictures. Mechanically it is perfect. $500 PayPal to your door. Upon close inspection of the pictures I noticed the reel has a quite a bit of dust on it. Comes spooled with 30# Samurai braid.
  18. For sale VS150 Gold. Excellent condition. US made, low serial number: 5343. Purchased used about 4 seasons ago. Factory service performed every year since at Van Staal HQ in Oklahoma. Includes (used) 30# Suffix braid. Comes with VS power knob installed (silver.) Original gold knob included. A couple very minor scuffs. Otherwise in excellent condition. See photos below. $575 shipped from San Francisco. Regular PayPal only please. Thank you.
  19. VS150, with new 40lb Super Slick Got it here in Dec 2016 but I couldn't find the post. I traded for it, but I rarely surf fish anymore. I would say 9/10 cosmetic, 10/10 operational (I never fished it, but just based on turning the handle). China model, s/n 18251 $500 shipped, $480 picked up (Parsippany, NJ) PayPal is OK I would also trade for a VR150 or VR50
  20. hey guys, I'm a couple years into the sport and I've really caught the fever. I bought a used vs150 in the off season and I have an airwave elite 10'6 1-3.5oz for now that I know I can pair it with. Any suggestions on an upgrade for the rod to match the vs150. I want to keep focussing on sandy beach light pluging 3/4-4oz for now I've been looking at rods in that rating. I would love to get the bang for my buck but at the same time I have to ask if you guys want to start recommending something like century, should I just go custom. Thoughts? Also I know a lot of guys up north go 250 when they get much past 9' or 9'6 but I like the longer stick so unless you all steer me shorter I'm still thinking the 10'-11' range. Any and all comments appreceitated
