I had a rhino reel I received as a gift. ONe trip to the salt killed it. EVERYTHING rusted, corroded, froze... and it never touched the water itself. (canal fishing)

 

Rinse well!

I bought some 9' daiwa eliminator rods 10 years ago at the big chain store that starts with W. I paid 10$ a piece for 9 and 10 footers. Needless to say some have broke and I upgraded since. they were ok for a couple of seasons. Went back to look for more for a few friends and they were back up to 30-50$ a pop. 35$ sound so for the 11 foot if in great shape. and If ya can salvage the braid if the reel fails..not a bad price.
