Product Description

Van Staal VR Fishing Reel

Most Van Staal spin reels attract odd looks from anglers. We guess it’s because, as far a spin reels go, it’s a little odd looking. It could be argued that The Van Staal VR fishing reel is not the most attractive looking spin reel. But if fishing was about cosmetics and ‘pretty’ the Flathead would probably be left alone as opposed to being one of the most targeted predators in Australian waters. Beauty is skin deep and the VR series is not about beauty, it’s entirely about AWESOME. And built for tackling BIG fish.

If an objective for a special service military operation was to catch fish, the Van Staal VR fishing reel series would be an essential part of the kit. It’s almost like the VR series was designed for military purpose, such are its features. It even looks military issue. Firstly, it is totally water proof. There will be no water, salt or sand ingress. Yes, you can totally submerge the VR.

If you were heading off fishing a war zone, this would be the reel to take. This is why the VR will prove very popular with kayak angler and the beach and rock angler where the elements can destroy a reel just by looking at it. The VR series are for those anglers that fish tough and rugged and demand the ultimate in durability without sacrificing lightweight, smooth performance. Considering the reel is fully water proof, the price of the VR is VERY affordable. The Van Staal VR Series Reels are a must have.

Van Staal VR Reels come with a kit to convert the reel to bail-less if desired. So now you can fish either with a bail or without, the choice is yours.
