I had a Bail arm on my first van staal and was apprehensive about buying one without as Bob says it takes 10minutes to learm and is not a problem the bailless van staal is also a lot lighter. Both excellent reels

Yes bailess is the way to go for me, I us the vs 100 bailess and if anything, i find it easier to use than a bailed reel simplicity itself.

Had a bailess reel over 25 years ago when I was a keen shore comp angler it was a Daiwa DF 90 it had a large spool capacity and the fact that the reel had no bail was a godsend when power casting as fixed spools back then were a bit temperamental with the bail flicking back over during casting,if I am not mistaken Mitchell used the same idea on one of their reels back then.

After a bit of use of my van staal, as mentioned by Barry the mental pattern of using a bailess reel dissappears.
