Abel has a long history of producing bomb-proof, elegant fly reels, that an angler can happily and proudly hand down throughout the generations. The craftsmanship, materials, and custom shop work are second to none in the industry, so it should come to us as no surprise that the sealed drag (SD) reels from Abel are no different. Departing from the tried and true system of the cork disk drag that the company built its foundation on Abel is now giving us a sealed drag (stacked Rulon and Aluminum washers) model for just about every fishing situation you can think of. Smooth drag and Abel quality ensure that the fish of a lifetime dancing on the end of your line will have to work a little harder if he plans on getting away this time. Function is extremely important to the people at Abel however, they also want you to look good on the water. Taking care of the form side of things are in-house artists that will give your reel a little extra love, anything from a custom color to actual artwork designed by some of the most famous artists in the industry. If you're interested in custom colors or artwork call us at the shop, we'd love to hear from you and give you a hand with your order.
Why pay for an Abel?
