Default Re: 9-12 wt what your pick and why

I would choose Abel over Islander if it were me...

Both reels will be cosmetically flawless and the drags are similar in quality, but the design "sizing" of the Abel reel is better in my opinion...

I would go with the larger arbor and narrower spool of the Abel Super 11/12N versus the Islander LX4.5 if it were me...

If you want a sealed drag, the Hardy Fortuna X rocks...
