The Van Staal X-Series Spinning Reel improves on the original well loved and respected Van Staal spinning reel by re-engineering what some considered to be it's only weaknesses - a drag system without much adjustment range and and line lay system that resulted in an hourglass shape.

The new X-Series now has perfect line lay optimized for braided line and distance due to it's FlatWrap Oscillation gearing and a sealed MicroClick drag system offering a wide range of adjustment with a linear drag curve.

As before this is one of the toughest reels on the market due to its rugged build qualities utilizing on the best materials and a waterproof design. If you want a reel designed to tolerate abuse in the surf or on the sea, this is the reel for the job.

Van staal vsx 250

Extremely happy with the reel. And a BIG Thank You!! To Salt Water’s Edge for having the reel in stock.


I own a VSX250 and now the 150. The 250 is on my 10’ 1-4 and my 150 is on my 1/2-3.5 and these two setups cover just about every application in the mid Atlantic region and Chesapeake bay. The reel is amazing, has enough power to beach any striper you’ll ever encounter.

Perfect size for multiple rod sizes, powerful yet still light weight, good line lay with braid compared to my VS.

Dunked and fished underwater on the rocks at Montauk Lighthouse. Amazing quality and durability. This reel lives up to its hype. Worth every penny

Rock solid performance

The VSX line is built to withstand whatever punishment you can dish out. Power to stop any species while staying water and sand proof. They are made for the surf. Period.
