So, I posted a thread earlier this week asking about saltwater rod/reel combos and how to get a cheaper but still good quality one. And after a few replies to my thread, I realized that it is true what they say, "you can't get something for nothing" and you will have to "pay to play". So, knowing that I will have to "pony up" at least $160 to $200 for a somewhat decent saltwater rod/reel combo, and keep in mind that I live in the Central Florida area, and I usually do a lot of pier and surf fishing on the East Coast(Ormond Beach, New Smyrna Beach, Ponce Inlet area) as well as some on the West Coast(St. Pete Beach, Clearwater Beach area) and I end-up catching small reds, saltwater sail catfish, Sheepshead, mangrove snapper and shark(small ones). Therefore, I was wondering, is it possible to buy "used" saltwater reels and then just go online and research replacement bearings, rings, seals, etc in order to refurbish them and then use them to fish with? Has anyone any experience doing this, if so, is it worth it, and what brands are easier to find parts for? Any advice guys?? Thanks!!
