Makes sense to me. On the suitability for salt, while I don't have any specific knowledge of this rod until mine comes in a week or so... When I was looking for reviews I found some sales introductions of the salt model and all they ever mentioned was a little more backbone for casting in wind. Never any sales pitch on enhanced corrosion resistance.
