Re: Abel or Hatch????
I have a Hatch 7+ and over 250 yds of backing with 9wt. bonefish taper. Hatch has a new Backing out that is 65lb breaking strength and smaller diameter than most 20lb dacron. Best reel I have had so far. But like many have said before me. They are all quality reels. When you pick one, it will be the best one for you.
