Bass Pro Shops Extreme Spinning Reel
When we upgraded our Bass Pro Shops® Extreme® Spinning Reel, we asked ourselves a simple question: what does the hard-working American fisherman want in a spinning reel? The answer immediately became clear: you want an exceptional reel at a reasonable price. So we rounded up all the usual suspects from our proven past models: minimal weight, efficient and powerful gearing, rock-solid frame—and then we bundled them with a few special touches that you can only get at Bass Pro Shops. These include our Mag Spool Technology™, with a 30% wider spool for faster pickup and less twist; an oversized titanium-nitride coated roller; our smooth and powerful Carbon Fiber Drag System with a stack of three carbon/three stainless steel discs; and our six stainless steel bearing system with Powerlock™ instant anti-reverse.
We believe our updated Extreme is the answer to all your spinning reel needs. It’s built to perform flawlessly; it’s designed to endure years of hard fights and keep coming back; and we’ve kept the price down to a level that allows anyone to own one. Plus, with four models to choose from, you can tackle just about anything that swims. Standard features include: one-piece aluminum frame with sealed sideplates; ported, forged aluminum spool; super-light graphite rotor; left- or right-hand retrieve; stainless steel shaft and bail wire; titanium nitride-coated roller; machined-aluminum handle with Soft Touch knob; and a FREE spare aluminum spool.

strong but light. It can handle about 20b.
So it is good for both salt and fresh water.
my recommendation is to use EX50B
and give it a quick wash after use in saltwater, do not forget to lubricate it to keep it for long time.
I believe you should add some appropriate tape (I hear cloth surgeons tape or electrical tape or cloth friction tape work, but I do not have the experience to confirm), or add an appropriate amount of monofilament first.
I do not see anything on the box or in the insert indicating this reel is braid ready..
