My brother just bought a torque bailess 7500 for tarpon and he was wanting some feedback
If he already bought it, why does he need our opinions?
But since you asked - they are absolutely excellent reels. They have a better drag than the VS. Very easy to work on. Extremely strong gears. Can’t say enough good things about the Torque spinning reels.

He works for bass pro so was thinking of exchanging it for a vs since he doesn’t see many used on the pier

They are excellent reels but I don't recommend them for the pier simply because the line blows back on the manual bail way to often during a cast. Try casting at a cobia or a pod of tarpon off the pier and the line engages with the manual in the middle of the cast. If you have a bail system, then you would be fine. I converted mine to a boat reel. put 100lb test on it and use it for grouper, ajs, etc... works great.
