Unfortunately for VS, alot of people say that when they find out about the policy. VS reels do need maintenance since they are oil filled. VS's policy, in their mind, is necessary to get people to change the oil, kinda like mandatory jiffy lube.Originally posted by PROFINITY:
I will not buy any more Van Staal reels as a result of this policy.
That'll explain why my 100 is sooo smooth.Originally posted by Bob ECT:
One thing with VS reels, the more use, the smoother they get. You'll find heavily used reels much smoother then new reels.
"If another reel comes to market with characteristics similar to the VS which many folks are fond of and is backed by a company with a normal warranty/service policy then VS is almost certainly history."
I agree 100%... I am an optimist though...Let's hope that Zebco "is" that company
And now I'm off to pack it up and send it in for service,
