Done with Shimano
Have two 8000d Baitrunners approx. 18 months old. Bought new and used approx. 8 to 10 times in saltwater. Rinsed after each use and wiped down with wd 40. Both of the reels have serious corrosion under the paint on the bail arms and the bait runner lever, one handle knob is almost froze up and won't turn. Too much money for these to last only 18 months, would hate to see what they would look like if used often. Going to Penn LL and see if they are better.
