Doesnít the DC spring loaded dog sit on that same post where it could also get stuck to it? You figure with the spring, itíll stay in motion and wonít stick to the post? At least you can hear that click and know itís engaging! I can hear it in both my Toriums.

this thing was a mess on the outside.  spent 15 minutes just scrubbing the slime off with an old toothbrush.  has anyone used an electric toothbrush to clean up reels?  i'm going to order one and see how it works out.

found this one for $10.99!  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BT5PBWG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have nothing to say but wanted to reply to this thread just so it will show up in the short list of "Show new replies to your post".  Sometimes that list is all there is time for.  Thank you Alan.

by chance do you have a pic of how it looked thar reel before you clean it up?

I used to use toothbrush too until finding sometimes the bristles where too small or short to reach certain areas, so I switched to a 1" paintbrush, I cut the bristles 1/2" (depending) from the tip to make them firmer and brush the reel parts much better, this way I cover more are of the reel faster and easier than using a toothbrush.

Are they swimming with them? I caught a tonnage on my Lexa 400hs-p and it was pristine. As is my newer Lexa 400hd.
