It's an Abel, how bad could it be? The biggest thing with Abels is getting the right one to pair with your rod. Other than that, my guess is that it will be like any other Abel. Stellar performance.

The Abel cork drag system is one of the better ones on the market. It has a rather large range of adjustment. I have never lost a fish to reel failure (user error, yes - many times).

I have issues with the dimensions. I have never been a big fan of a wide reel with a short body. Two issues with that type of aspect ratio are slower retrieval rate and possibility of line stacking. On 10 weights, I prefer to use a Super 11. By using a taller body and a narrower spool, there was less chance for line stacking, and the retrieval rate was faster.
