The Van Staal® VS Series reels have been the benchmark for durability and reliability for 30 years. The VS X2 Series is built on the VS foundation of simplicity and functionality and is made with the finest materials available for the No LimitationsTM angler. The X2 retains all the features the VS Series reels have become known for while adding key improvements from top to bottom. New sizing rounds out the portfolio from back bays to the offshore tuna grounds. The new unibody design increases strength and sealing while the longer handle, power knob, and power drag knob increases both cranking power and drag pressure. The oversized clutch is now on the pinion side which results in immediate hook sets. With smaller and faster reels, the benefits of the VS X2 can now be experienced by the inshore angler.

Big reel in a Small Package

The VSX Gen.2 100 looks like it will fit the bill perfectly for my NJ surf fishing needs. The extended foot and power **** make it feel “big” but maintains a small body. I think the boosted retrieve rate and same drag power as the 150 will also suit my preference to fish lures throughout the season. Time will tell the story on durability, but I do have confidence in Van Staal. Besides all that, it looks terrific!
