Just picked up a new in box Daiwa Cross Cast reel (sealed and all with tamperproof packaging), it seems to be a bad leak but I'm not familiar with what might have caused it. As you can see from the photo one of the sides is totally slick with oil. Is it defective from the factory (meaning I should contact the retailer asap) or did someone just apply way too much oil (and it'll be OK if I just wipe it off)? Any advice is much appreciated!

if you pay for new,i will go exchange the reel for new reel,that is not your problem to figure out.could turn good or to **** later and you will be stuck with that.
