I've had 5 of the Lew Childer's reels and used them all exclusively in Salt Water for many years. I loved them for their ease of maintainence and cleaning as well as durability. The only things I changed out were the bearings every 3-5 years, but I do that on all my reels... The only modifications I ever made were changing out the handles because they would get too slick when wet, so I installed aftermarket handles on all of them.
