About Van Staal:
Van Staal was founded in 1987 in Fairfield, Connecticut by Robert Koelewyn, an
engineer and a perfectionist who took special pride in providing precision
machining capabilities and designs to the aircraft industry. In the 90s he
took interest in the fishing industry and wanted to build a more maintenance
free, longer lasting fishing reel, thus the innovative and very unique Van Staal spinning reel was born.

Later in 2001, Reel
Ventures LLC acquired the rights and assets to Van Staal. Reel Ventures
continued to build these reels that were mainly used by hardcore East Coast
striper anglers, along with fellow Australian anglers. Finally in
2003 W.C. Bradley took charge of Van Staal, and is focusing on bringing
the brand back to what it used to be, a brand of reels for a special breed of
hardcore anglers that demand the very most out of an ultra rugged reel.
The stunning VSB100G comes with a very nice
Van Staal spinning reels
arenít like any other spinning reel on the market. These reels are very unique
and even knowing what to expect, the stylish VSB100G is very impressive at first
inspection. The gold spinning reel really shines and the intricately designed
patterns command further inspection.
Constructed out of premium components
The VSB100G is the new
breed of Van Staal spinning reels featuring a manual trip bail system. This bail
is made of super-strong titanium material complimenting the reelís overall solid
design very nicely.

The long, extended handle
with large knob immediately emphasizes the reelís power while the design, in and
of itself reassures any onlookers of the reelís dependability and solidness that
weíve come to know as the Van Staal construction and design.
A well ported design
So did Van Staal just take the traditional VSS model and slap on a Titanium bail
system and call it the VSB? Absolutely not! The Van Staal VSB spinning reels,
milled out of solid-stock aluminum, has the obvious bail on the outside
including a new skirted spool, but there are also changes on the inside as well. On
the original Van Staal spinning reels, the clutch was placed near the handle,
which was great but made it difficult for anyone to maintain the reel. They have
now moved it right below the rotor and have enlarged the anti-reverse clutch for
superior power and control. In addition to the large anti-reverse bearing, the
VSB makes use of an oversized hardened stainless steel main gear and a patented
maintenance-free drag system.
