Default Re: Abel Model Confusion - Please Help

The problem is with the names. The older Abels with small arbors were known as Big Game and there were 3, 3.5, 4 etc. This referred to the reel size in inches. The 3N you refer to is a narrow, with larger/mid arbor hence the lower line rating.
What you want is either a Super 7 or 8 for 6-8 at lines, even 9wt.
Don't give up, they are great reels.
