Geezus, you guys are assholes.
An Avet, and you didn't use handle condoms?
fish the iron.
Haven't had that problem however, Might try soaking it in warm soapy water (just the rubber handle, not whole reel) for a little while. Dry out and lube it where it pivots. .02
Grease the handle like your drag.
Just don't tell Avet your doing it.
Fookin Nate ,
The guy could kill , skin , pack a deer , but can’t figure how to remove scales
I find that a torch works even better...
Tuna blood works for me
Well now the damage is done, just clean each trip period, I had to redo a handle on a xrap rod that a buddy borrowed super sticky!
I used that one spell from harry potter "expecto patronum" and it kept the scales off my knobs... just saying...
Alternatively, wash ur reels after the trip and use your fingernail for the ones u cant get off. An old fisherman once told me "A reel which doesn't have battle wounds is a reel which doesn't catch fish".
When I"m catching barracuda. I rube the fish a little and no fish scales after that. Works well on the rod also.
Dip it in Olive Oil, just don't let Popeye catch you.
Try distilled water, works for me.
I have mega OCD when it come to this... I scratch every scale off after every stop. And then checked again when wrapping up my rods at the end of the trip. I may need an intervention. True story...
Grab a offset circle hook and pick away
Now that is funny!!
Avet told me when I replaced one of my sticky knobs their rubber handles have a bad reaction to some ingredients in SUNSCREEN - that causes them to get sticky and degrade - if your Avet rubber is getting nasty and rubbing off look at their exposure to sunscreen
