Shimano® Chronarch® Mg 50 has anyone here used this reel? I am wanting to know how it holds up in salt water. God Bless
And in some cases even if you dont dunk it. Mine was never dunked...I did buy it used but very lightly used and the guy I bought it from is reputable on these boards. I didnt dunk mine although I didnt do any deep cleaning on it either till just before we took it to Mike. I had been using it for about 7 months, heavily for about 3 when it started to crumble on the inside at the thumb lever. Dont know what started it, maybe a scratch or a grain of sand. I always took extra care rinsing it off after each use no matter if it just rode on the boat or if I actually used it.Mike in Friendswood said:On the other hand, if you dunk it a few times straight out of the box, and don't maintain the reel properly, it will surely crumble into tiny little pieces right before your eyes.
