Reel Opinion

Hello all...wondering if anyone in here has any experience with the Abel TR2 reel. I just got a new Winston GVX Select and am looking at maybe getting a new reel for it. I currently have a Lamson Guru 1.5 that I use for my 5wt and have another spool loaded with 3wt line and use the same reel for two rods. I have never used a click and pawl reel before. It would be strictly a trout rod used on mostly tailwaters. Any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Great looking reel and expensive of course. One thing you may not like is there is no external drag adjustment. Like the new Battenkill where the pawl spring pressure is adjusted by removing the spool and turning a hex nut. So you pre-set the drag prior to fishing with no adjustment while playing a fish. It's kind of an old school thing. If you're used to setting the drag to prevent overspool and then applying all subsequent drag on the rim it's no big deal. It's the way a lot of people grew up fishing and still do.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I know Abel's are crazy expensive, but I found a guy selling a mint condition TR2 on eBay, and am looking at probably getting it for less than $200. The click drag shoudn't be a big issue on the Little Red, which is my home water. I think palming the spool will be kind of a cool new (old) way to fish. My auction ends in a few hours. I'll let ya know what happens. Thanks again!

LOL,looks like the spammers have glommed onto this thread. If you're going to spam, at least make it intelligible.
