Liquid hand soaps are the modern day "tide" for clogging drains.

Remove the rod from the stopper. Put the rod back in the tail piece. Now just drop the stopper back in the hole. The stopper will work without being attached to the lift rod. Now you can just lift out the stopper and clean the drain. Lift rod will work without being attached to the stopper. Bin doing that in my house for over 20 years. Not connected on 2 bath sinks.

Also, a little trick I do once a month or so is put a pan of water on the stove and while it is getting up to boiling, take some baking soda, put it down the drain, then take a cup of vinegar, after heating it up in the MW for a minute, and pour it down the drain! That will clean out most of the crap, and when you get the pot of hot water boiling on the stove, pour it down, to rinse everything down! That is very easy maintenance, and keeps our drains clean and running good, here at home and in the MH also! Rail!

Blockages in drains are almost NEVER in the trap, and the fall of the piping isn't critical. At least that's my experience as a retired master plumber. The linkage in the drain mechanism is an invitation for accumulation of hair and goop from soap. Different styles of linkage will accumulate at varying rates, but most will require periodic regular maintenance.
Yup, I would say that my experience confirms that. With the new flow (due to the higher stopper) my guess is that it will clog up less than it used to.
