Default Re: Abel Trout or Creek?

The Abel Trout series Light weighs 3.1 oz, but the Trout 1 weighs 4oz:
Trout Reels/TR Series

I'd buy an Orvis BBS II with a 2.75" diameter, and an honest weight of 3.5oz.
Pocket the difference, or buy two .

EDIT: The last Abel trout reel I played with required removing a small screw to remove the spool. That
was a deal breaker right there.
