    I like this reel so much that I bought another one. I use the reels primarily for surf-fishing. The casting range is phenomenal, even with just two ounces... more

    Giant Trevally and striped bass
    This reel worked flawlessly for striped bass and giant trevally. I replaced the line with 20 lb. Ande.

    Looks good. Heavier than I thought.
    I have not tried this reel yet, but I will say that it has a solid feel to it, but is a little bit heavier and larger than I was expecting. This should... more

    I would have to agree. Purchased two for my grandsons for a beach trip. Only one is still working. Its a fine reel until you get it around salt water. Not up to usual Bean standards.

    Rinse your reel with running fresh water after a salt water outing. Never soak a reel overnight in fresh water. And most surf reels (irregardless of manufacturer) are not meant to be dunked in salt water - if they get dunked you need to take the reel apart, remove all the contaminated grease, reapply new grease, and reassemble it. Your other reel, the Penn Slammer, costs 3 times the cost of the LL Bean surf reel and has an IPX6 rating - it can withstand a jet of salt water without water intrusion. But even the Slammer should not be dunked in salt water. I would have thought the Bean reel would have been fine for the surf in Galveston - there are not the big crashing waves that are ever present on the Atlantic or Pacific coasts.

    Rheath51.... saltwater attacks everything. There is not a reason that Penn's cost $500 plus as they make $60 reels too. The key is that you wash them. Soaking overnight in freshwater just reduces the concentration of salt that is on your equipment. Buy some J&J baby shampoo and WASH your equipment, rinse, and allow to air dry-- it will last longer.
