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 Able aside from it's peers.
A fly reel is made up of more components than many people realize, and most manufacturers only create a handful of these pieces in house. Not Abel!. At their Camarillo, California facility EVERY SINGLE PIECE of each reel is hand-made, hand-anodized, hand-polished, and hand assembled- right down to the handles and the screws that hold them in place. By eliminating outsourcing, they are able to maintain the level of quality control that others cannot begin to claim, all while helping to support the American economy.
