All......

FedEx showed up this afternoon with my Super 4N. Looks, and runs, like the day I took it out of the flyshop. Abel brought it right back to factory specs. At the lowest drag setting it now ......again......almost free spools; just like its supposed to. All done at no charge.

I truly have no idea how this happened......but apparently I own the problem......not Abel. Three feet of tippet (???)had wrapped around the shaft......under the drag plate. I have no idea how that could even happen, but, at least theoretically that couldn't have happened if the reel had the new sealed drag. Who knew??

Anyway......I'm very happy with Abel's service.

I've heard nada from Arch with my CFO, but at least I have the Abel to sit on the ass end of my 5 wt rod for this fall.
