Abel or Hatch????
I'm in a real dilemma. I'm going to get 2 new saltwater reels for my 8wt & 10wt Helios rods.
Where I'm based means that getting to handle the reels in question is difficult though I have checked the Abels out (Super 8 & Super11N) but unable to find Hatch reels other than mailorder. ( I have checked out the other usual suspects but have narrowed it down to these two because of of either: reviews, costs, quality, aesthetics or availability).
I've not been able to check the reels out on a Helios for balance either.
Hatch for the 8wt and a Super 9 for 10wt?
