Cabelas XSS fly reel

Hi Does anyone has a Cabelas XSS fly reel for saltwater fishing? I would like to hear some comments about this fly reel. The price is right but I am worry about the quality of the reel. Thank you

Not familiar with the reel, but in a former life, Pflueger Medalist was the go to reel for saltwater, and it was not designed for that environment. A daily soak and rinse in freshwater kept them relatively rust free.

There are a lot of inexpensive reels out there for saltwater, e.g. TFO, Orvis, Albright, etc.
