Van Staal VSX200 (Roter hitting Spool)

Rate this topic

I recently got a new Van Staal VSX200 and realized when reeling it the rotter seems to hit the spool and it makes this small slight rubbing noise. Has anyone else had this issue? Please let me know what you think, thanks!

I'm following, no idea on what besides a bent main shaft or rotor cup but a good friend of mine has a vsx 100 that all the anodizing on the bottom of the spool is gone from a similar clunk to what you describe

A shaft bends when damaged, takes a bit of pressure to bend one, its highly unlikely its bent  right at the production stage, I believe they're centerless ground, not just a pc of bar stock.....If the shaft was bent I'd think you'd most likely feel an inconsistency, or a spot where there's a bit of resistance while reeling  when the bent section of the shaft reciprocates in & out of the reel..

 

I'm leaning more towards the flyer or how the flyer is mounted, maybe some anodize build up somewhere?

 

Maybe reel was dropped somewhere along the assembly process?

sound like sand stuck somewhere.

if you take the spool off , does it still make noise ?

check where the rotor is hitting the spool . 

or send it back

No sand anywhere, haven't even dunked it or anything. Sending it back today, not sure why it would do that. Reel was used just one time after I got it too!

Most likely the rotor is bent. I had the same issue with my vsx200.

This is baffling. Brand new reel. Tackle direct lists them for upwards of $700. They don't sell them by the truckload. Still can't QC something so simple as blatantly damaged parts direct from factory. Just wow. Pretty disgraceful.

 

I'd expect this sort of occurrence when buying 1000 stainless machine screws from MSC direct, but one of Van Staals flagship reels? Wow. You'd think after this long making them they'd have figured out manufacturing by now.

I've had one come from the factory with issues and needed more grease

All yours needed was grease?

Check the screws on the bracket that the line roller is connected to. One of mine had a burr on end of screw that was rubbing on bottom rim of spool.image.jpg.05cb8120c51a9f5ac60bdef62201eca1.jpg
