Gear Ratio 4.75:1. This is considered a RIGHT handed reel. (the handle is on the left) Meaning you hold the rod with the RIGHT hand and CRANK the reel with your left hand.
One of Van Staal's most famous features is its sealed, waterproof drag system. Even if you're not in the habit of submerging your reel while fishing, regular exposure to the elements alone is enough to compromise the integrity of the drag system and inner gears. Anyone who's hooked into a monster only to feel the drag slip or hear that unmistakeable coffee-grinder sound coming from their reel knows how painfully true this can be.
That's why when we set out to build the market's most durable and reliable fishing reel, we knew that drag and gear protection was critical for consistent, peak performance. To achieve this protection, our engineers designed water-tight seals throughout the spool, body and handle assembly of the VS and VSB spinning reels. No other reels on the market offers this level of protection, and that's why no other reel on the market will do for serious anglers looking for the ultimate in hard-fishing performance. The Largest Main Gear In The Industry.Wading into the surf or pulling on a giant fish, the challenges can be relentless. Your equipment must be equal to it. For experienced anglers, the challenge is not always finding and hooking big fish, it's landing them. That's why Van Staal VS and VSB spinning reels are designed with a main gear that actually helps you fight - and land - big fish. Made from hardened stainless steel , the main gear will never slip or strip under pressure.
The Van Staal main gear is also oversized to provide more fish-fighting torque per crank of the handle, meaning you control the fight, not the fish. All products, for return or credit, must be in original packaging in unused condition.
