Yes it is very clean &
No- the tension is completely backed off in this picture.
On the 1540's as the tension regulator is turned the metal platform the springs rest on is raised increasing tension on spring & pawls.
The springs are very strong.

This is a super sweet reel for a great deal! It has plenty of capacity, I've put this on the new Echo Glass 7129 and balances the rod well. Someone is gonna get a hell of a deal!

This reel weighs 11.8 oz empty. These reels will hold any line you want to put on them. They have great capacity. 150 yrds backing plus any line not a problem with these reels.
First "I'll take it" gets it.

I can't believe someone has not picked up on this reel. I've had one in my collection since 1990, when I purchased it in Vancouver, BC from Mike Maxwell, one of the spey casting hall of famers.
