Re: Abel or Hatch
Agreed. I thought the lack of quick release would be a big deal, but realized the only time I switched spools on my other reels was in the evening or before heading to different type of water. I just have large loops in the backing and switch lines at home with a line winder. If I do think that I might use more than one line in a day, then I just load the other line on one of my older Ross or Lamsons. But to be honest, I can't think of the last time I used more than one line on a rod in a day to justify a spool.
