Based on the Van Staal C-VEX Fly Reels, the new VF models are built light, waterproof and strong. All of the LW (Light Weight) and HD (Heavy Duty) models, from the smallest 2/3-weight to the versatile 9/10/11/12, are sealed and saltwater-grade, ranging in price from $259 to $549. The middleweight VF10HD, for 8/9/10 lines, weighs just a hair over 8 ounces and carries 210 yards of 30-pound Dacron backing with a WF10 line.
