What kind of paint is used on fishing reels?

What kind of paint do you use on a fishing reel?

They are usually plastic and can be taken completely off. What kind of paint would you guys recommend? It will be done in just the typical flat black matte color to match the reel. Plan on using spray paint and making this a quick job, nothing too crazy.

Can you powder coat a fly reel?

The powder coating option simply starts to break down very quickly and does not provide a long lasting corrosion resistant reel. I took a die-cast/powder coated reel out for a season of striped bass fishing here in Maine (beaches and rocks) and the reel showed spots of corrosion within a few months.
