Default Re: Abel Creek vs Abel Super

The Abel Super series is a draw bar cork drag, which is arguably one of the finest drag mechanisms every made. Very simple design and quite easy to maintain. The reels are excellent, high quality pieces of equipment. I'm a huge fan of them and have a number in my quiver.

The Creek series is no less beautiful and is a classic click and pawl design. I've not fished one and do not own one but I've fished click and pawl reels for trout and they get the job done.

My advice is to review the web for click and pawl vs. drag rather than go into the differences here. That's the key to your question IMO. Either type of reel will perform for you with your targeted quarry.

Cheers,
Mike.
