Why is it that there seems to not be as many domed Abu reels in US Distance events? I see them in the UK (youtube) but not to many over here.. Maybe it's just the people I know...

Thanks Guys... Now only if I can look half as good as the reel.. LOL With Earl Blake, Bob Sales, Charlie P helping me I'm sure I'll be ok... Although it's very humbling having three guys old enough to be my dad (im 31) kicking my butt on the field.. LOL

There is nothing wrong with the dome sided Abus but I prefer the flat sided. One of the great thing about the Abu's is that they work very well with not that high of tolerances. I feel that the flat sided dual knob gives finer adjustment without having to rework the internals of the reel. For fishing reels I would say both could be tuned to operate about equal. I have a few Ultramag II and Ultramag III reels that I would never get rid of and they only have one knob to adjust the spool, except for my Ultramag III with the Benfield conversion. I love the ultramags but to get them field ready takes some tweaking of the internal workings, not hard to do just a little trial and error.
