Do it Brian. What's the worst that could happen, you have to send it back for a new one? One of the guys I work with uses his every day, all he does is rinse it and oil it every once in a while. He's even caught YT on it, and still has the original drags. This was what convinced me to at least try them. His has been used 5 days a week for at least a year. Quite the test I'd say.
