Van Staal Spinning Reels

Van Staal Spinning Reels are the reference point for all other surf fishing reels.

Waterproof design, extreme durability, and built to shrug off abuse that can often disable other reels.

They're not just for the surf though, tackling some of the biggest fish in the sea worldwide. Bluefin tuna off Cape Cod, grand trevally, tarpon, and more from both the boat and shore.

They may be beautiful reels, and the first scratch always hurts, but they're built and intended to tolerate hard fishing environments and outlast more delicate reels.

Some older Van Staals, well over 20 years old, are still in regular service.
