Van Staal VR Series Spinning Reels

4 reviews
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.

Looking for spare spools? We've got them.

Note - The Van Staal VR50 will not come with a kit to convert to bail-less.

Van Staal VR175/ODM Frontier 1064

Very happy with this combo and the customer service while making purchases from The Saltwater Edge. This particular combo will get a real test shortly as larger fish begin to arrive

Van Staal VR50 matched with St Croix Avid Surf Rod

I could not be happier with this purchase! The VR50 matches perfectly with the Avid rod producing a light weight combo of under 16oz! It is exactly what I am looking for! I was really impressed with the retail location in Middletown and knowledge and detailed information that Mike shared with me prior to purchase. This is a first class operation, selling first class gear - like the Van Staal VR50!

Great Reel!

Purchased the VR200 from SWE last season during the summer. Has caught multiple Striped bas and has held up very nicely without any issues or problems. So far so good if I encounter issues in the future and are common I ll be sure to update this review.
