Fish it.

 

Both my VS 250 and my Saltiga 6000-Z are scratched to hell and back. Doesn't affect how they perform in the least.

If you're using a VS in the conditions it was made for, it'll get beat up eventually smile.gif .

What should you do about what?? You bought it, you use it. Don't like it, sell it. If it works, I'd keep it. Not sure what your question is, hard to read your post..

My buddies VS is beat nearly to death cosmetically but still performs great. He likes it like that though! I have a pretty beat up stella, but she is still pretty.

 

I like the smallest reel I can get away with but that is just personal preference. If I ever purchase a VS I will probably start with a 150.

I have a black vs200, and after one season it looks pretty worn. I will try to get some pics. Not terrible, but shows some scratches.

 

As far as size, I think my 200 is plenty big, and if I get another, it'll be a 12 ounce 150 (for a 9' rod)! To each their own.

 

I fish rocks, rocks, some sand around rock, and well...so that makes a huge diff. If it was only sand, i'm sure it owuld be sooo pretty!

I'm one of those people like you that although I know my Van Staal is a tool for extreme fishing, I still want it to look good...You should be able to have it anodized...Just Google places where you live...Their out there...
