 I will not be purchasing any products from Pure Fishing held Brands in the future. There are more than enough quality choices in the market so I don't have to support this attempted manipulation by this corporate giant.

I  welcome those that join me,

It’s a nice looking reel. 
To me it looks like the main body is the same as the old VS. The rotor forward is the new revised bailed VS version.

I hope not to be rail roaded into this but we will see.

Love my old VS reels.

Wow thats nuts, ive talked to 2 people on Facebook so far about vs 150Ls and one guy wants 1250 for a silver and then 1300 for a solid bronze which is tempting but at the same time the vsx2 comes out in a few months im clueless on what to do.

If the reel works well, that’s what matters. Stripers don’t care if you have a Jersey Gold VS or a Zebco, and anglers shouldn’t care either. 
 

90% of people who buy a VS don’t even use it to it’s potential, and the 10% who do will have a backup for their backup’s backup even if the chances of a failure are slim.

 

I hated my original VS, and they haven’t made getting a lefty remotely possible, so I just fish the alternatives. Doesn’t mean I wouldn’t look at getting one if it’s a tank and offered in lefty models.

The people on the two Big Facebook groups are clueless compared to the info you'll get here. Most of it is just buying and selling the same Gold reels in mint condition for 1200-1800 and then fighting about what color braid to put on it.

The first guy told me 1300 and i was like ill just wait for the vsx2 to come out and get a lefty then and his response was well enjoy your 19oz reel. He said the og vs were 11.12oz. Do you have any info or does anyone on the specs of the vsx2?
