Also used is the proprietary maintenance free and waterproof drag system which the world famous feature of all Van Stall spinning reels. Even if you do not submerge your reels while you fish it is possible that regular exposure alone can compromise the efficiency of its drag system. This is exactly why the engineers back at the Van Staal labs gave so much importance to gear as well as drag protection to provide every angler with a constant peak performance.

And so the drag system in each of the Van Staal VS Surf Spinning Reel Series uses 2 ball bearings that are made of stainless steel to enable smooth performance of the drag even under the harshest of conditions. The pinion and the main gear in these spinning reels are also made of stainless steel that is hardened which helps you not only fight but also land the big fish.

This main gear will never strip or slip under even the extremes of pressure. It is oversized to enable more torque per crank of the reel handle while fighting fish. The fight is completely in your control and you definitely win the battle. No other spinning reel in the market provides you so much protection and performance at the same time. It has a main shaft that has a large diameter and is made of solid titanium. It is also mirror polished to provide smooth operation.

Each reel in this series is modelled to suit your particular requirements so you can take your pick without compromising on quality or performance.
