Default Re: Abel Trout or Creek?

I own reels in the TR and Creek series. I have a TR1 that I use for 3 and 4 weight rods. Both are great reels. Personally speaking, I'd have no problem putting a TR2 on any light rod. The smaller reels mentioned no matter what maker wind so many tights loops into the fly line that it creates problems for me in casting. Depending on how long your 2 wt rod is, the balance of the set up likely will dictate how small a reel you want to buy. For any rod 8' or longer, I think you'd like the larger reel like the TR2 or the BBS III.
