Van Staal VR Series Spinning Reels

The Van Staal VR Spinning Reels were upgraded in several key areas with the introduction of the Generation 2, continuing the legendary tradition Van Staal has with its sealed, durable, and lightweight reels.  Like the original, the Gen 2 VR-Series is fully sealed and submersible, perfect for the angler taking on the elements in the pursuit of beasts that lurk our waters.  These reels are forged and machined from 6061-T6 aluminum, with skeletonized cut-outs throughout the spool, body, and rotor to assist with reducing the weight of the reel.  A MicroClick™ drag adjustment knob allows for easy and more finetuned adjustment, giving the angler greater control of their gear and the drag ratings they put towards the fish.

All VR125-VR200 sized reels have gained a little weight for the right reasons.  A thicker stainless steel main shaft was added, which reduces the flex of the reel under the load of a hard-fighting fish.  Improvements were also made to the sealing of the reel, continuing the VS status with taking on adverse environments. 

The Generation 2 VR also takes on new models and Van Staal once again has a true lefty reel in the lineup!  Models VR51, VR51B, VR151, VR151B, VR201, and VR201B consist of a right-hand retrieve setup.  These are true lefty reel, with the rotor spinning in the counter-clockwise position with every turn of the handle.

The VR is often chosen by the fisherman who wants the ability to switch between a bailed reel and bail-less option.  It suits itself well from the beach, boat, jetty, and just about any salty environment that you could throw at it.  With a fast retrieve speed, beefy drag, and large line capacity, this reel is meant for the saltwater fish that exist from coast to coast and beyond.
