Aluminum level wind line guide carriage on a salt water reel,   What were you thinking??!!     Just removed the first corroded pawl from an obviously near mint 20LW.  Sadly worm,pawl, and idler gear of course will all have to be replaced.  The Capt. was not amused, she has trips to run.

    shadowwalker -

    the pawl is stainless steel, with the worm being plated brass. No aluminum in those parts, and the aluminum in the carrier itself is anodized the same way our international reels are. What you saw is certainly not normal, nor is it something that we have seen on these reels. I will have one of our service techs reach out to you.

    Thank you for the very quick resolution.  Ill be recommending the Warfare level winds as a good choice to my 'right sizing', Charter and private operator customers  embracing the whole family comfort concept when selecting tackle purchases.
