Default Re: Should I buy an Abel Super8?

I realy like my Super 6 and 5, but have heard the same concerns about winter use with Abels, or any cork drag reel. I think as long as your not in freezing temperatures you are ok. As for the weight, I think the a little heavier reel is needed for the longer rods to help not be so tip heavy. My Super 6 is on a Scot S4 956(9'6" 6wt) and the balance is better and is more comfortable than when I have my Bauer MSL2 mounted to it. I'd say if your already looking at Abels, might as well buy one, if not you'll be buying one in the future anyway.....
