    I am interested in making an offer but am a bit concerned about knock offs.
    I have seen this reel for sale new for $185. Chinese Van Staal's are out there now.
    How can I know which it is?

    I've seen reels that look like VS's but they aren't. As I understand it, there are components/parts made in China, but they're made to VS standards, not Chinese standards.

    The serial number on this one is 01818, and has the VS name and logo in 3 places. The foot says Van Staal China.

    I've had the reel for about 2 years (?) and have yet to use it, but I bought it used and sent to Half-Hitch.

    Maybe our more knowledgeable posters will offer some expertise?

    here's some other people talking about them:
