After each trip, I would “gently” wash them with water as I’ve been told/read that hitting them w water to hard actually drives the salt and grit deeper into the reel.
Got my rods out for respooling yesterday.... the reels seem fine, but the eyes, especially on the spinning reels are deteriorated as hell, one of which actually split, dropping the eyelet out and exposing just the metal.
What is y’all a me thing for keeping rods and reels clean?
I thought I was doing a good job.
I can’t afford paying that kind of money for gear that’s only gonna last two seasons
