Abel 3 antireverse
Looking for opinions/experiences on the Abel 3 antireverse. I have a family member who has been spending the winter months steelheading in NY. His current reel keeps freezing up on him and getting the drag blown out. Not sure I am suppose to say the name of the reel mfr but lets just say it is suppose to be one of the higher quality brands. Anyways after the third return, he is now just looking at the Abel 3 antireverse as an all purpose big salmon and steelhead/ Salt water reel. But at the price, there is some (okay a lot of) hestitation. Anyone out there have any experiences or knowledge on this reel that they can share? Thanks in advance.
