Buddy of ours let me and my boys stay at his beach place and my boys were wanting to get him a decent spinning rod and reel he can use off his dock in the bay.
He isn't a huge fisherman or anything but the couple reels he has are junk.

Any suggestions on one that would stand up to all the saltwater and corrosion

Many thanks-

What would he be fishing for? and what is your budget?
Unless completely sealed, all reels will need a rinse and some maintenance if dunked or sprayed with saltwater.

Rod, a 7'Med or MH fast action would work. Not highly regarding to show off, but you can't go wrong with the Ugly Stiks. GX2 or Elite.

I like the new Daiwa BGs, best reel under 100$ and matches the stradics and other reels in the 2-250 $ range. I have not had it long enough to know about durability, but it is smoother than a Penn Battle II 4000 which is another great choice. (Daiwa 3000 is equivalent).

Others will chime in with more recs, but that setup will be around $150 and maybe less if you find sales, but ould be great for reds, trout and flounder. If surfcasting for bigger critters Iwould up the reel to a 5000 or 6000, maybe bigger and a heavier rod.

Would be just reds, specks and maybe flounder....that's what we caught last weekend anyway
