That's not a Van Staal which was the first high end surf fishing reel positioned to fish the Northeast, (Penn 704z was the go to before it), didn't have anything to do with offshore or tuna fishing. They have sealed drags so you can swim out to rocks and soak the reel without worry. That's just a Shimano Twin Power (one step down from the Stella's which were the first offshore positioned spinning reels).

I love the harness! That way you can hang yourself after a tough trip lol.
It’s a Stella.

    Guessing he had no budget after getting the Stella, the braid main spooled, and the rod.

    $12.00 for this:

    ...and $22.42 for this:

    ...or $85 for this:

    ...gets you to the same result with a bit more finesse.

    The straps need to be adjust so the lower ones are taking more pressure than the upper ones or one's neck pays a big price...guess how I know :rolleyes:.
