I have thought of the mag lev before. I don't think you would need any power even. Adhere a cylindrical magnet around the spool shaft ends and screw in a magnet with a hole in it. Make sure all four magnets have the same polarity and stand by to tear off every bit of meat on your thumb right down to the bone!

The old Ryobi V-Mag 3 (one of my favorite reels) predates the use of neodymium magnets so it had two large magnetic discs with an aluminum cup attached to the spool riding between the two magnets.  These things cast like a bat coming out of a cave, but I don't know if there was any levitation involved.

Would mag field accelerate electrolysis/corosion though?

It doesn't seem to, but the stainless shell coating on neodymium magnets is really fragile.  If one magnet jumps across the bench onto another the shell can chip. Neodymium must be really vulnerable to corrosion because if the shell is chipped it will turn into a blob of rust.
