These are the original one you posted:

008   3/16   5/16   0.176"   0.316"   Durometer 70A (Medium)   ASTM D2000   -70° to 300°   Black   100   1289N108   6.31

Is this also the ones Three se7ens is referring too?

Thanks,

Frank

Ted, If the ones posted above are correct I already ordered 100. Thanks.

That part number referenced EPDM o-rings, so those are the right ones. 

Viton (as Tom mentioned) will work well too.  But I dont see the extra cost of viton adding any benefit over EPDM for saltwater and sunlight exposure.  Where viton excels is its resistance to a broad range of harsh environments and chemicals, but a reel isnt likely to see much that would degrade EPDM but not viton.

I don't worry much about the sun and salt, it's the oils, lubes, and solvents that degrade o-ring material.
