Congrats on the Abel TR, I think you will like it. I have recently purchased a couple of these and after so many years of disc reels the C/P is a nice change. I have found that my Abels have just the right amount of tension that for most fish palming is not really needed. The reels has an internally adjustable drag by simply rotating the little hex nuts that control the spring tension. Currently I have my set on the lowest setting and the drag has a great balance between enough tension yet not too much that a light tippet might be at risk. The instructions advise to set the hex nuts on different levels depending on whether you are right or left hand. I have both set on the lowest setting and there is still a difference between incoming and out going tension.
