I think the difficulty in changing spools on the Abels are blown out of proportion...it takes just seconds and would do it anywhere (aside from standing waist deep in a flowing river....but how often do we do that with a Spey rod).
Tibor's on the other hand are a b*tch!!!
If you are going to drop that kind of dough and want a kick ass flyreel but want simple spool changes, purchase an Evotec 11-14 HD...it will balance that rod perfectly!!
Plus it is super large arbor, sealed drag with fairly inexpensive spools and I know many that have been through Hell and back and are still going strong without ever skipping a beat!!
Plus they are totally wicked looking, hold too much backing....and well, Loop sponsors The Forum!!
You will not go wrong!
