Just picked up a slammer 3 5500 and I noticed the spool makes a weird noise in between the drag clicks. It is kind of like a “shhhhh” noise if that makes sense. It’s brand new, never been fished. 
 

Curious if anyone has heard this before and if it’s a problem. Maybe it just has a lot of grease from the factory? I attached a video. 
 

Thanks!

That knocking is never going to go away even with new internals. Best to get a new one or just live with the knocking. Doesn’t really affect anything anyways but I’d imagine it might if you hook something big enough that will make you regret not getting a replacement lol better to be safe than sorry
