This is not a reel that is specifically built for saltwater. Of course you can use it in the salt. You should definitely give the reel a rinse with fresh water after every time in the salt and it will require more frequent cleaning. Even with that, you will eventually start getting corrosion faster than you would with a saltwater approved reel. If this reel interests you, I would look to buy a Zebco 808 Saltwater reel. I have a few of these myself and they are solid.
