i own a vs 250 and fish the **** out of it !!, i sent it in for its yearly tune up, and three weeks later i got it back all polished up and running like a tiger. they did an excellent job for $ 35 bucks!!. all the stripers and blues did a number on the reel. the vs people re-packed it with grease, re-placed the o rings and even gave me a new drag clicker( i think thats what its called?) i hear a lot of people on this board bad mouthing the reel because of the price and other garbage. i have nothing but good things to say about the company. i own many many reels and this by far is my favorite for the salt.if your passionate about fishing like i am then price means nothing . if anyone is thinking about buying a vs go ahead and enjoy, il see you in the surf with the gold on!!

dont forget to set the hook!!!!

Hey---they're great reels---got no second thoughts about buying mine.

Course, I liked them a lot better a few years back when they were $200 less.

And I see I'll have to remind them not to replace the drag clicker on mine ;)

mattyblaser, you might be right?it could be avitation oil, but it looks like grease, they seem to use two type's one is a red grease wich is in the drag knob, handel,and spool, but if you look at the shaft that goes in the reel it has a opaque grease?. anyway i love them, the stellas aren't too bad either.

I just bought a stella, wanted something small for the fresh water, to bad VS doesnt a 25 or a 50.
The grease might be to slide the new o-ring onto the shaft, or external lubrication for the sealed case. In any case I love mine, the only one I havent bought yet is a 250. perfection through simplicity.
