The Best Reel.
If you dont already own one, buy one. NOW!You wont be sorry.
The 150 Black Van Staal is a great spinning reel for so many different situations. One of the benefits with this reel, like with all the VS models, is the ability to fish the saltwater environment without having to peform a detailed cleanup after each trip. Don't get me wrong, like any fine machine there is periodic service involved. It's just that with a VS reel, as it relates to saltwater, you're looking at spending a fraction of the necessary to keep other reels in working order. A quick spray down with fresh water, a once-a-year replacement of the seals and lube, and most anglers will be just fine. Spend more time worry-free fishing and less time cleaning up afterwards.
