VAN STAAL Ultimate Aluminium Body Spinning Reel VR150 Silver
Van Staal VR Spinning Reels are the latest innovation from Van Staal, the leader in sealed reels. The VR-Series is fully sealed and fully submersible, like their proven predecessor, the X-Series. They are forged and machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, with a solid stainless steel center shaft and titanium nitride coating. These reels have a powerful, waterproof drag system with MicroClick tuning accuracy and a lightweight design, due to the cut outs in the body, rotor and spool. Another innovation with the VR-Series is the easy conversion from a bailed reel (packaged this way), to a bail-less reel, using the tool, parts and instructions included. The VR is often chosen by fishermen who want all the features of the VSX with the option to switch between a bailed reel and bail-less. They’ve also been popular with surfcasters looking to save a few ounces and build the lightest rig possible as most models are even lighter then the already light VSX bailed reels.
The Van Staal VR Series reels are engineered and tested to be lightweight and long lasting. They are based on the same foundation that made Van Staal legendary for power and durability. These reels are completely sealed and waterproof reel.
Sealed, Waterproof Performance
One of Van Staal’s most famous features is its sealed, waterproof drag system. Even if you’re not in the habit of submerging your reel while fishing, regular exposure to the elements alone is enough to compromise the integrity of the drag system and inner gears. Anyone who’s hooked into a monster only to feel the drag slip or hear that unmistakeable coffee-grinder sound coming from their reel knows how painfully true this can be.
That’s why when we set out to build the market’s most durable and reliable fishing reel, we knew that drag and gear protection was critical for consistent, peak performance. To achieve this protection, our engineers designed water-tight seals throughout the spool, body and handle assembly of the spinning reels.
No other reels on the market offers this level of protection, and that’s why no other reel on the market will do for serious anglers looking for the ultimate in hard-fishing performance.
The Largest Main Gear In The Industry
Wading into the surf or pulling on a giant fish, the challenges can be relentless. Your equipment must be equal to it.
For experienced anglers, the challenge is not always finding and hooking big fish, it’s landing them. That’s why Van Staal spinning reels are designed with a main gear that actually helps you fight – and land – big fish.
Made from hardened stainless steel, the main gear will never slip or strip under pressure. The Van Staal main gear is also oversized to provide more fish-fighting torque per crank of the handle, meaning you control the fight, not the fish.
