but if you are fishing rivers then a closed face would be better, you could get both because you can get closed face abus really cheap on ebay at the moment.

Abu 706 for river fishing, can't go wrong best reel on the market for that type of fishing.
You would be better of with a normal reel for still waters.

I've been using a Daiwa TDR (small one) with my Drennan 13ft Matchpro waggler rod on a silver fish lake for a while now & it's great!
