I can't answer all your questions. However I do know that the super 12 Abel reel is as smooth as silk, as sturdy and reliable as an old John deer tractor and will bring most fish to there knees in a hurry. I did switch over to that Tibor grease on the cork drag, It seemed to be worth the money.
When I go on far away on expensive trips, I always take the best tools money can buy, however in this case you can buy an Abel super 12 on ebay for $400-450 and it still retains the life time warranty, Best investment in fly fishing. my 2 cents
