Is anyone using van staal reels. I'm about getting the vs300 reel for surf fishing. I like that it doesn't have a bail and they seem like they hold up to the elements really good and I like that they can hold alot of line. I'm also goona purchase the vsb150 for a small cast and retrieve setup. Anyone use or have experience with these? Likes and dislikes about them?

If you are going to be plugging and throwing lures in the surf and have the $$$$ I say go for it.

If you are going to be tossing bait and setting your rod in a spike I would go with some sort of baitrunner reel.

For me personally I don't see the cost benefit of the VS reels, I would rather get a good quantum cabo or shimano reel that is 1/4 of the price.

Agreed!

Shimano new baitrunner design is nice for the surf and a heck of a lot cheaper!
