The Abel Super Series originally started life as the Abel Big Game reels and quickly built a reputation for being solid and reliable. Over time they have evolved into what we know today as the Super Series Large Arbor reels. Still as solid and reliable as ever, but lighter, larger arbors and color options are just a few of the choices one can ponder over while building that one of a kind heirloom.
Available since 1999 in a size for every fish that swims, the Abel Super Series has proven itself time after time as the premier American-made reel. While there have been various improvements and adjustments over the years, there are things that have never changed. Specifically, a super-smooth, infinitely adjustable cork drag system married to a strong aluminum frame & large arbor spool for increased line retrieval speed.
For 2017 we have redesigned the original Super Series reel with an all new line of lighter weight sizes that feature a quick change spool system achieved by eliminating the previously removable locknut and drag knob.
The proven drag system is what makes the Super Series equally at home on the trout stream, the salt flats, and demanding deep blue water: It can be set light enough to protect the finest tippet, but can also be cranked to slow down the toughest Bluefin. No matter what species you prefer to chase, a Super Series reel is there to help you land it!
