The Orvis BBS is a much different reel than the Battenkill...IMO. The BBS
drag is very nice, and sizes I and II weigh less than 3.5 oz. I use a BBS III
on my 7'6" 4wts, and it balances very nicely. A Hardy at 2.7 oz sounds great!
YO! Those little screws for the Abel's spool are $6.25 each, and I'm sure shipping isn't free
