Van Staal Spinning Reels are considered by many to be the best surf fishing reels in the world! Designed to handle extreme fishing conditions, Van Staal Reels are fully sealed. This means that water and even the finest sand won't penetrate the body or drag. Many anglers are learning that Van Staal Spinning Reels are not only for the beach. They are excellent boat reels, especially when targeting larger pelagic species. If you want a serious fishing reel then a Van Staal is the way to go. They are made to last a very long time. Service kits are available.
