I guess it depends on your location.  After four years in Aruba I replaced 
my big-grips.  They were corroded so bad I could break the end strands off 
with two fingers.

Fwiw after almost 25 years I had some 1/4" ehs replaced that was showing
signs of surface rust to the point it was getting rough to the hand.  After
replacement I pulled a couple of chunks and took them apart and down inside
they were solid, it was just on the outside surface of the strands that
there was rust... And all the deadends I took apart for inspection looked
almost like new inside.
