Abel Reels are in a class by themselves. American craftsmanship, quality componentry, unmatched hand-painted finishes – these are just a few of the things that set Abel apart from its peers.
To meet the demands of steelhead, salmon and other big water anglers using Spey-rod casting techniques, Abel designed and machined the sport’s definitive tools: the Abel Spey Reel and Abel Switch Reel for 2012
Featuring fully enclosed frames and Abel’s time-tested external adjustable pawl-click drag, the reels are styled in an "old school” fashion, reminiscent of classic European Spey reels, but with a craftsmanship only possible in a made-in-the-USA version
The Spey, weighing 9.5 ounces, at 1.100-inches wide, is the newest reel is designed for 8- to 10-weight Spey lines. The Abel Spey is machined from 6061-T650 cold finished aerospace-quality aluminum.
