WTT/WTS Van Staal Bailed X-Series VSX 150 (VSB150SXP)

4 posts in this topic

Hello. I'm looking to sell or trade Van Staal VSB X-SERIES Bailed Spinning Reel. The only reason for trading/selling is that I'm not happy with the drag. I just disassembled, put some Penn Reel Grease on the carbontex washers and assembled the drag again. I am currently getting 10 lbs of drag right off the spool. I had a digital scale connected right off of the line roller.


So the drag directly off the line roller is about 10lbs when the drag is locked tight and there's a minor scruff on the foot of the reel (you can see it in the picture). Other than that, it's in very good condition. I purchased this reel from Tackle Direct last year on 12/14 for $870 and used it only a handful of times.


For trade:

  • The reel
  • $50 Cabela's gift card (if upgrading to a more expensive reel)
  • + Cash (if upgrading to a more expensive reel)
  • I'm not looking to reel underwater. I want a reel that's sand-proof.
    • Zeebaas ZX2 (ZX22RB)
    • Van Staal X-Series 200 (VSB200SXP)
    • Daiwa Saltiga (SALTIGA5000H, SALTIGA6500H)


For selling:

  • The reel, bag, and box (all in the picture) for $575 shipped, or $600 shipped if you want the $50 Cabela's gift card as well

Ok, PM coming...


I've received couple of PMs letting me know that it might be an easy fix... Maybe you know what to try. Will you let me know if you end up tweaking the drag and "fixing" it? Maybe 10 lb's of drag right off the spool is a lot more when it's on a rod (since the rod will take some load off) and you won't mess with it. Either way, I would really like to know what you decide to do.
