Now you have me looking at a reel to match my nippers argggghhhhh

What is the difference between Abel Creek std arbor and Large Arbor. Obviously I know what large arbor means but the diameter is the same ,so how is one std and one large if they are the same diameter ?

Read this first.

Abel Reels - FlexABELity

In theory, it's going to allow you to use the same frame with a greater variety of lines. If you purchase extra spools, this is obviously true. The problem is given the cost of spools, in some cases you might just be better off with another reel Avs, I think I warned you before when you got those nippers, but I'm going on record: Abel is a slippery slope. When you get one, there will be more. Just ask Chi, and grouch, and <insert other Abel owners here>.
