Anyone have any experience using Van Stall reels under a spey rod ? I'm interested in durability, capacity, and drag quality. They look like a beautiful reel and the combo package looks interesting but I've been fooled by good looking products before that ultimately didn't perform.

Regarding the VS Combo...

I like the design alot...it caught my eye from the get-go...
The drag has been flawless when tested by heafty Harkers Island False Alibies...
I purchased a backup thru E-bay and it arrived with some corrosion on the spool and around the reel seat...Obviously not rinsed after salt water exposure...
Perform basic maintenance and it should serve you well...
They are currently being manufactured in Oklahoma...same as the CT reels...
A small "o" ring seal on the main shaft failed and, after calling customer service, I had replacements in a few days...address is easily found with a web search...
I'm pleased and enjoy the quality and performance!
