Default Re: Van Staal VS Abel - Which Reel is better?

I used a Van Staal on a redfish trip 5 or so years ago. It was new at the time, and it performed great. I was told shortly thereafter that the drag seized up to the point that the local shop couldn't even get it open, and it had to be sent back to Van Staal. I have no idea what happened from there.
