"No Limitations" describes everything about the Van Staal product line. No limits on where you can go, how big a fish you can hook or the amount of pressure you can put on it—and your equipment.

Van Staal reels aren’t for everyone. There are select types of fishermen who strive to push themselves and their equipment to the limit. These fishermen have passion that demands more than ordinary fishing tackle. Only the highest-performing, most durable tackle will do. These fishermen have no tolerance for equipment that doesn't live up to the elements, or even worse—doesn't live up to the fish. These are Van Staal fishermen. These are for whom the brand was created.

Van Staal is built for the extremes. For places with the most demanding elements and challenging, remarkable, ultimate fish. Every Van Staal reel (VS, VSB and C-VEX) incorporates a completely sealed, waterproof drag system that is able to stand up to the constant thrashing you expect them to take, and all Van Staal reels are machined from aluminium and anodised for saltwater protection.

Our formula is simple: superior engineering combined with today's most advanced materials. Milled out of solid-stock aluminum, a Van Staal offers extraordinary strength and precision. Every Van Staal reel faces shop and field testing that is unprecedented in our industry—tests conducted in the harshest humidity and saltwater conditions; destructive tests to ensure maximum strength and durability; and field tests in the most extreme environments you'll ever face.

But beyond the engineering and machining, it's the people who are the essence of Van Staal. Technicians and experts trained to scrutinise everything associated with the product—from computer-aided design to quality control, from final assembly to customer support. People who have made a sincere commitment to producing and supporting the industry's finest fishing products. All backed by service and a warranty that assures a Van Staal will be your ultimate fishing companion.
