Not trying to get off of topic, but once I save up a little money (and my Wal-Mart gets the new C3s in), I'd like to get an Abu Garcia reel (probably a 6500C3). Is this reel or the 6000 model suitable for saltwater fishing. If I ever get a chance to go to the coast, I'd like a reel that can pull double duty for some surf or pier fishing. (I might use it for Salmon or Muskie fishing if I get a chance also, but maybe with a different rod). I know that it is physically possible to use almost any reel for saltwater applications, but is the Abu meant to be used in such conditions. Some reels have components that would corrode very quickly if exposed to salt (magnesium reels for example). Anyone use an Abu for saltwater or know they answer? I'd like to hear some input. Thanks.
