I use Woody Wax on my boat's deck and metal work and I was wondering if anyone uses it on their anodized aluminum reels? It seems to me that it would make them easier to clean and help prevent any water spots.

Yes, I also use it on the reel seat threads.
I also use Woody Wax on the surface of my reels- keeps them easy to clean.

BTW, how is woody wax on boats? As far as non skid areas too ? There are only 2 types ? For metal, and fiberglass ?

I've been using Meguiar's for years on new reels, particularly the spool before filling it with line that first time. The reels being made today are far superior to what was around some years ago but old habits die hard. I'd like to think the wax helps prevent surface corrosion but can't offer any proof that it works except for the fact I'm still using a few that I bought more than 30 years ago....
I rub my reels down with a rag sprayed with Corrosion Block, then rub them dry. Works for me. I also spray it on the hand tools that I keep on board.
