Van Staal VR Series Spinning Reels
by Van Staal
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.
Power Knobs? We've got those too.
Note - The Van Staal VR50 will not come with a kit to convert to bail-less.
