Default Re: Abel or Hatch????

Well as usual things never quite go to plan!!!
I have bough 1 reel....and neither of the ones I mentioned. I am still going to get another.

I got an incredible deal (way below list) on a Sage 8080pro...their latest offering.
It is marketed as an 8wt, however from the little info available I understand it will take a 10wt line with 200yds or so of gelspun backing.
I will put some pics up when I get a chance. The quality is excellent (Korean I know) and the drag.....wow! The drag was designed by Jack Charlton of Mako fame.

Many thanks for the suggestions etc.....I'm still looking
