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.
In the picture Frank posted, I see a little silver lever sticking out from under the center plate that looks like a spool release lever to me.
