I don't have any knowledge about different draw bars at all. Perhaps your buddy was talking about dual paws versus one paw? All the newer reels have dual paws and out going clickers which can be removed very simply.

The standard super 12s I use will hold 500 yards of #50 power pro and just about any full fly line you want.

Abel also has a program for $100.00 bucks where they will re-finish your reels outside finish, and replace all the parts internally, which makes the reel brand new. Just shows me the confidence they have in there made in the USA products

I would have total confidence in buying just about any used Abel reel, like money in the 2 cents
