Orvis BBS IV Reel- Salt?

Orvis says their Battenkill Bar Stock reels ( the IV is for 7-9 weight line) is suitable for "light salt water" and uses it in their Clearwater combos (for salt).
What is "light" salt- occasional use (I don't want that!) or regular use but for smaller species like trout and red fish?

So...if anyone has used this reel in salt water on a regular basis- how well did it work?

Since the reel is anodized bar stock, "light saltwater use" refers to fish size. I would still rinse in freshwater after use in salt.
