Not sure if its a common problem but a friend I fish often with had his Torium 30 HG frame start corroding terribly and actually spread after about 6 months of normal use. He assured me that the reel was washed after use.

I on the other hand own a Daiwa Saltist BG 40 and since 2011 or so and had nothing but awesome performance from it. I service it maybe once in 2 years and wash thoroughly after every use. After installing an adjustable mono mag and it casts extremely smoothly even for someone new at multipliers.


leave your wife alone for two weeks and see if she also did not start to corrode.
salt water is a bastard!!!

back to teh point:

I think Daiwa, in sales is past shimano, in this range, nearly teh distance between the moon and earth.

Daiwa had some good marketing done, and sales went well.

i did contact Kingfisher last month, just to enquire the sales. they did not want to tell.....

but i will get some more information on teh sales...word of mouth is always better.
