I have 2 VS's. One is 6 years old. No issues what so ever. I Like the dual drag, Smmooth. Thought I would try one of their low end rigs and Just snagged a 4/0 Trio with the dual drag for $59 delivered from Academy.

They are a little tricky to clean. You have to align the oscillator gear just so (they are marked).

Funny how some of these Asian reels get their bearing count up to as high as 14. Some stack 3 ball bearings in the crank handle. What the middle bearing does is beyond me.;?

Great sites for those that like to do their own service and repair.
