  The VR series uses the same body and inner  components for the 125,150 ,175 and 200  reels . The 125 and 150 use the same rotor cup and the 175and 200 use the same rotor cup. , just the spools are different.You can change spools between a 125 and 150 with no other modifications . Also spools between a 175 and 200 interchange. The VR series are made for the new lighter surf rods and are easily taken apart to service .

So the level of sealing is the same? Can be submerged and even reeled under water.? And it has a titanium shaft as well?

 The level of sealing is the same ,both can be reeled under water. The VR is a lighter version for the new light wight rods made today.I think the VR series has a stainless steel shaft. Have a few friends that swim out to the rocks with them in Montauk for 2 seasons now and when they were serviced there was no water inside them. Give Craig a call at van staal he is a great guy to talk to .

The phone number for pure fishing headquarters is 1-800-334-9105 maybe they can give you a phone or email address for Craig Cantelmo He is the field service manager . I think he is from Cutchogue NY . There is a you tube video on VanStaal by surfcasters journal that shows the VR series getting fully disassembled / reassembled and showing the differences in parts
