Giving Back

We are proud to donate 10% of each sale towards fishing conservation. We proud to have contributed over $2,100,000 cash to the Sport Fish & Wildlife Restoration program in our 27 year history. We’ve historically also created numerous reels to benefit outdoor conservations, and other worthy causes.  We’re proud to have teamed up with two more honorable organizations, and are offering either model at $700, of which $100 of each reel will  be donated directly to the beneficiary.  Reels can be purchased through Abel dealers, or the Abel website. Below are some of our most recent partnerships.
