I'm no 'VS' expert (& I don't own 1 yet, "but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night"). That said- I do surf the 'net daily on several fishing forums & I collect, trade, buy & sell a lot of fishing gear & I see a lot of VS reels bought & sold & I'd say that Combo is worth at least $350 (if you wanted to sell it fast) & maybe >$500 (if you can wait for the right buyer who really wants it & just got paid)... It's all about your motivation as a seller (& the motivation of a buyer). If you want a number... ~$450... depending on the rod... (I'd give you $300 Cash today & I don't even want a small VS):letsparty

Yep. That is a pre zebco. Lifetime warranty reinstatedto buyer after the first service. Looks like a 150 but you have to measure the OD of the spool to really tell. I have a 250 like it and love mine.

They have to be sent in for service every year to maintain the warranty. The service centers are not allowed to service them.

JOHNJOHN205 (3/25/2010)that staal looks like one of the earlier lifetime warranty ones serial number would confirm, 4-5 is a fair price
Its warranty only stays current if you send it off every year for maint. So its more like a year warranty.
