AAAHHH......the Pflueger Medalist. I am still using them too. Even in the salt. I just rinse everything in warm soapy water after each outing.
I don't get to fish the salt much though. Just a few weeks each year. I do use saltwater taper lines on my heavier outfits from 7wt and up and they work just fine for bass too. I did recently buy a 9wt outfit for the salt. I hope I get to get it in the brine this winter.
