 I used my bass rod once striper fishing brought it home and threw it in the garage and never even thought to wash it off or anything went to haul it out the next weekend and it looked like somebody poured a cup of battery acid all over it that salt is brutal on the reels.

Send it my way, I will try it out in the salt.

Voice of experience:  if a reel does not specifically say that it is for salt water, do not use it in salt water.  I had a medium low price range Daiwa spinning reel the right size for steelhead and sockeye salmon, and used it for about three hours in salt water from my kayak one time.  It took me an over an hour to drive home so it was likely two hours after fishing that I washed it in fresh water with a garden hose as I do all gear after using in the salt.  The next morning when I went to put the dried gear away, the reel made a LOUD grinding noise when I turned the handle and felt rough rather than smooth turning. It still worked but after more washing (too late) and a few uses as a back-up reel I got rid of it.  I replaced it with a Cabela's brand Salt Striker made to handle salt water.

Started dating a woman a month ago. I belive it is written in the stars that I should be dating her. She lives not 2 mile from a big Bass Pro shop.  I am going to go visit in the morning. Might even stop by to see the girlfriend.
