    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.

    I used that one spell from harry potter "expecto patronum" and it kept the scales off my knobs... just saying... :food-smiley-014:

    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".

    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...

    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
