Van Staal took the VS Series fishing reels to the next level with their latest innovation, the Van Staal X-Series. The Van Staal X-Series features the same legendary rock solid design and materials that Van Staal's known for... BUT! The Van Staal X-Series has a couple key upgrades. The Van Staal X-Series features...
Van Staal X-Series Drag - The new Van Staal X-Series Drag gives anglers the next level in waterproof sealed drag fishing. Offering more max drag than ever before, the improved drag system has a great range of adjustability. More over, the new X-Series drag-adjustment clicker (via detents) divides the drag cap rotation into distinct increments. These "clicks" allow for precise drag adjustment that's user friendly and absolutely essential in dynamic big fish fights.
Van Staal X-Series Traverse Guide? Van Staal X-Series Line Lay - The new and improved Van Staal X-Series "X-Wrap Oscillation System" offers anglers the next level in Van Staal line lay. Van Staal redesigned their traverse guide (circular photo shows the new "S" style) to optimize and perfect the line lay. Van Staal's straight channel traverse guide (found in original VS reels) was the culprit for their infamous crossed up hour glass line lay. This was (and still can be) combated by filling your reel spool on a line machine with a hump in the middle. Once fished it tends to some what level out. Van Staal wasn't happy and demanded the best. Van Staal engineers spent some time and solved the issue, now introduced the X-Series featuring a new "S" channel traverse guide. This new superior oscillation and line lay improves casting distance by reducing line friction.
The Van Staal X-Series is built on the same foundation that made VS legendary; machined from aeronautics grade aluminum, stainless steel main gear and pinion gear, solid titanium main shaft with an additional titanium nitride coating and a patented waterproof sealed drag. Van Staal - No Limitations!
