Damn you bait monkey. I see they make a low-profile frame for this reel now, making it sit 7mm lower on the reel seat so it's easier to palm. Not that this is hard to palm, but it would also shed an ounce of weight on top of it. I swear these Abus are like Barbie for fishermen.

Wish they made these for the 4500/5500 series, they could also really benefit from lowering. They can get uncomfortable to palm at times.
