Hi all
I have been reading about this product for quite a while, and although I am sure a number of you know about it, I thought I would share the info around. Here is the link to the distributors in Oz.
Cheers

Capalaba is not too far from where I live, I might call in there and have a look at it.

Be interested to hear what you learn Gerard, as it would be good to wash the car roof after dripping kayaks above, and hose ban in place.

If you visit could you ask re effect on car polishes

Hmmmm. If the product can do what it is supposed to, that would be a very interesting proposition. I have to say, that it sounds a bit too remarkable, the chemistry must be very interesting.

I think I will adopt my "Lets sit back and watch what happens out there" attitude... a gold mine if it works!

Cheers all Andybear :lol:

I've used Salt-X on my reels and other items for a couple of years I'm not sure that it works quite as well as advertised. I used it according to the directions a couple of times and had unsatisfactory results. Spraying reels with Salt-X and then letting them air dry didn't work very well for me. I did that a couple of times and wound up with corrosion on several of the reels. There may have been other factors, but I don't feel comfortable using only the Salt-X to protect my gear. I still use Salt-X, but just as one step in my normal preventive maintenance routine. Now, I spray everything with Salt-X and let it sit for a short time. I rinse everything off with fresh water, dry and then apply a corrosion inhibitor. I'm having better luck with this method. I don't know if the Salt-X makes a difference, or if it is the whole process that is effective. All I can say is that I have very little corrosion on my gear.

I use too but I think it is best used right after you come off the water. It neutralizes the salt. Still a good idea to wash and lube the reel.

We Fisho's will buy anything. :lol:
