- Q & A
Can this reel be used for saltwater fishing?
Although it is not specifically designed for salt water it can be used, however it needs to be rinsed and the interior pieces need to be oiled after every salt water use. If you are looking for a dedicated saltwater reel i would look at something that has a fully sealed drag as well as being an anodized aluminum reel.
Take a look at the TFO BVK reel.
Or the Lamson Guru Type 2.
Do you have these in 7 at.?
We currently have the IV (6-9wt) reels on order. We are expecting them to arrive by early May, possibly sooner.
do you have spare arbors for clearwater large arbor reels ?
Hey Richard H,
At this time we do not have the arbor in stock for this reel.
