Default Staal

Looking to get a van staal for kings on the pier this year would a 200 or 250 be better if I plan on spooling with 15lb mono or should I go with braid with a mono Backing thanks

250 for mono, 200 for braid. are you set on van staals or just looking for a bailess reel to throw cigs? van staals are great reels but a little over kill to ONLY be pier fishing with. hopefully someone with more knowledge will chime in.

Salt Life sticker
White Costa's
Yeti Cooler
Flat bill Hat

Don't forget the Pelagic gear clothing, split grip rod (custom or you wont catch sh*t), sperry's of course, and a nice pier pass from your loving parents!

Those Staals sure are great, but just be sure not to get it wet while you're up there 30 feet above the water. They're not made for that kind of thing.

Waste of money for a pier reel. They don't even have a smooth drag due to the O ring seal. Go with a Penn Spinfisher or equivalent.

More like the "staals are beyond stupid for pier fishing crowd" If I lived in the NE and was surf casting for monster stripers while standing on a rock in 5ft waves then hell yeah I would love a staal.

But from 30ft above the water? Dream on.

It was a joke, no need to get bent out of shape or start fanboy-ing bud.

Shoot, I mean if you're handing em out sign me up. I just think I couldn't justify that expense if I'm not utilizing it's main selling point (sealed construction).
