Super Series #12W Fly Reel
The Abel Super 12W (wide) - equally at home in the salt fighting a Mako shark or on a spey rod. The new Super 12W has a fully caged frame for increased durability and to eliminate the possibility of ultra thin running line finding it's way between the frame an spool. It has a diameter of 4.45 incehs and a spool width of 1.375 inches. This reel is for 12 and 13wt fly lines.
* Since 2007, all Super Series reels size 6 and larger and all Big Game reels size 3N and larger have been fitted with the new Double Pawl system. Two pawls instead of one are a bit more reliable when big fish are headed for the horizon; but the best thing is the really neat sound they make. Instead of click, click, click...double pawl reels hum a merry tune of clickclickclickclick. Cool!
The Abel Super 12W weighs 10.7 ounces. It holds 400 yards of 30lb backing with a 12wt fly line and 350 yards with a 13wt.
