Slammer III dunking

Went for a swim with it the other day lol. No harm done but still need to take it apart and confirm. Didn’t think to bring my VS that night.

The Slammer III should handle repeated dunkings with no problems whatsover.

 

But if you want to check, it's easy: remove the four screws on the reel, remove the sideplate, and look inside. If it's there's grease, but no water, inside; the seals did their job. If there's water inside, then you have a problem. The entire process of removing the screws and the sideplate, and putting them back, will take you about 3 minutes. 


But my guess is you'll be fine. The sealing on the Slammer is more than adequate to withstand being dunked.

For whatever it's worth I have popped the side plate on any reel I have owned after a wet day. If there is water dump it. Leave sideplate off until dry. When grease becomes discolored service. Simple as that
