I'm with you on that Frank. I have 25 year old tanks that look just like my new ones, and all I've ever done is rinse them with hot water when I'm finished. My plastic reels, only look old, but they were old when I got them(1960's Yankee Clipper) Maybe its just the new stuff thats fussy. I have some new plastics, but have yet to use them.
