    The reel has been abused pretty hard since I got it. Winter here means surf perch from the beach and lingcod on the reefs along with pretty hectic weather. I can't complain about the rod either, I use it mainly for making bait on the kayak. But I will note that the fuji reel seat on the rod-along with most of your high end rods- is a little tough to get the Van Staal reel foot into due to it being so square. Another thing I thought was strange is the lack of a line keeper and a pretty cheap tool for taking the body apart. I had to buy a new tool off the bat because mine stripped out, being soft plastic. One would think on a $500+ reel that a comfortable reel foot that fits into common reel seats and a line keeper would be automatic. I can now say I own a Van Staal, but for the money you pay, I think the Tsunami SaltX that I have absolutely beat the crap out of is on par durability wise, and has a better drag system. Just my opinion. Thanks JandH for the cool combo!

A Van Staal VR50 Spinning Reel paired with a Dark Matter Bonefish Plus Travel Spinning Rod makes the perfect combo for inshore fishing. The VR50 is lightweight, powerful and fully sealed! It's been one of the hottest reels for the past few years because it offers amazing performance in a compact package. The Dark Matter Bonefish Plus Travel Spinning Rod is a 4-piece rod that weighs 5 ozs and is outfitted with Fuji Alconite Guides, a Fuji reel seat and comfortable cork grips. It's got power and sensitivity for days! Pair it with the Van Staal VR50 and you've got a setup that you can travel the world with! If you are targeting redfish, bonefish, schoolie bass or other similarly sized fish, buy one of these combos. You can't go wrong!

Van Staal VR50 Dark Matter Travel Spinning Combos come with a hard travel case for the rod. Reels are avialble in black or silver.
