"Aluminum Fishing Reel Corrosion"





March 18, 2010

I have a aluminum anodized spool on my Shimano Fishing Reel.I removed the line and found corrosion on the spool hub.The spool does have a stainless pin installed in the hub to tie the line off to.I am wondering if the saltwater causes this corrosion to accelerate coupled with the galvanic reaction of stainless to aluminum..Should I remove the pin to decelerate this corrosion?
Thank you

Hi, Steve. An end user redesigning an OEM item usually won't work. I'd suggest that you clean and clear coat the aluminum. There are simple "brush-on" clearcoats like Everbrite [a finishing.com supporting advertiser] that you can reapply at any desired frequency.
