HANDLES

Aluminum - Rosewood - Walnut - Zebra - Ebony

Aluminum handles have a slip-resistant knurled finger grip and are fitted with a hand-pressed Delrin® insert for smooth cranking. Their weight precisely matches the weight of the counterbalance. They won't chop, fracture, splinter or snap no matter what the temperature or conditions. Available in all finishes.

Laminated wood handles are highly engineered wood composite known as DymondWood™ made for us in Rutland, VT. Handles have the physical and mechanical properties of high-density hardwoods, acrylics, polycarbonate plastics and brass with compression strength of 25,600 psi. Available in Rosewood, Walnut, Zebra or Ebony.

ABEL ARM™

The Abel Arm™

A high percentage of our reels are now ordered with an Abel Arm™. By hanging the reel below and slightly forward of the casting hand and moving the center of gravity away from the reel seat, the improved balance offers greater comfort and significantly less fatigue. If you suffer from tennis elbow (tendonitis) or arthritis, you will feel the difference when you use the arm.

Abel Arms may be fitted to any model and size Abel Reel.

CUSTOM ENGRAVING

Utilizing a precision U.S.A. made laser engraving machine, Abel craftsmen can add a unique finishing touch to your reel - a tarpon, bonefish, tuna, rainbow trout, permit or steelhead to name a few.
