Is this saltwater ready or just for fresh water fishing ?
1 Answer
Hi John, The Abu Garcia Zata Spinning Reels are designed and intended for Fresh water fishing applications. However, they can also be used for light inshore saltwater fishing applications and would need to be rinsed down after every trip or each use. Please let us know if theres anything else we can assist you with. Tight Lines.
