I recently took in a saltist 20 for service. The complaint was "Doesnt work". It did not. The handle would not turn, I could not push the lever into freespool and the drags seemed fused. It felt as if a part had come loose and bound the gears. Once i was able to work the right side plate off I found a large molded salt crystal. I have never seen so much crystalized salt in a a reel. I havent talked to the guy but I am assuming he is a kayaker. This thing had to be dunked and dried many times to get to this point. I was pretty sure it was going to be a write off. I tore it down and starting cleaning parts. I was amazed that most everything cleaned up very easily. Including the bearings. It took about twice as long to service as a normal service takes but when i was done it was a like new reel! Just thought I'd share. Daiwa has realy nailed it with this reel.
