Default Re: Abel Creek vs Abel Super

I too own both and I have fished the area you're targeting. If you skilled at palming the reel or using fingers against the line to apply drag, the Creek is a winner for its classic looks. Knowing the size of fish that you may encounter in these tailwaters, I'd say the Super series (or Big Game, as standard arbor versions used to be called) may be the way to go. I have a BG .5 (point five) and a #1 which I would use down there. The .5 could be considered a four weight reel, but the #1 if likely too large for your rod. I also have a Super 2 with a LA spool that I like a lot, but it doesn't hold much backing.
