I should mention that the reason I switched to the braided lines is that I fly off grass and the soft aluminum "loop" in front of the gear leg was taking a beating from tall weeds. Braided lines are routed behind and are shielded by the gear leg. Zero problems for almost two years now...

Jim===possibly the master cylinder was slightly depressed, allowing some residual pressure, and not allowing the piston to 'retract'. Some have installed springs on the masters to aid the master cylinder piston retract.
You might check to see how much free play you have in the master piston.
