You can't go wrong with either from what I've read and seen about Abels. I don't own one but would like to.
Besides the mechanics (the reel and foot are completely integrated, no screws, and the drag is completely/truly sealed) it was the looks of the Hatch that was the deciding factor.
Hatches tend to run a little heavy as you can see for a superlight Helios rod.
