I have had a few tackle warehouse reel covers (for a few nicer reels) been using them for about a yr
That have started melting, or dissolving at the seams.. kind of counter productive to keep my nicer reels nice..
I'm curious if anyone else has had an issue? Or any better cover recommendations?
I have some of the rubber wrap around also, that I don't use because they kinda suck

I had a few neoprene does this exact this....so I ditched them. Nothing beats the crown royale bags for storage. When they're in my boat, I don't protect them.

I have the academy ones and the Steez covers. Neither have shown signs of deterioration. The Velcro does collect stuff over time, so I clean them by putting them in the laundry once a year. You must have gotten bug spray with Deet on them, or something.

I have about 2 dozen of the Academy covers that are several years old and all are holding up just fine.

Reel Glove or the H20 Xpress ones from Academy work perfectly fine... no issues

I can say don’t waste your money on the Lews Baitcaster covers. They look cool, but do not fit any Lews model, past or present! cheers

My nephew gave me a couple of these: https://www.academy.com/p/h2o-xpress-stretch-fit-silicone-reel-cover
Kind of a pain to get on but work great [Linked Image]

Looks useless for reels that are on rods.
