Abel Automatics Switch and Spey Reels
To meet the demands of steelhead, salmon and other big water anglers using Spey techniques, Abel designed the the definitive tool: the Abel Spey Reel. It has been engineered, machined and anodized meticulously as you would expect, but also created with a specific design and capacity aimed at long-rod anglers.
Featuring a fully enclosed frame and Abels time-tested adjustable pawl-click drag, the reel is styled in an old school fashion, reminiscent of classic European spey reels, but with a craftsmanship only possible in a made-in-the-USA version.
But more than just being a good looker, its the perfect instrument for Pacific Northwest steelheading or classic Atlantic salmon, with a drag capable of putting a big hurt on these hard-running fish.
The baby-brother to the Abel Spey reel is the Abel Switch reel, designed to be the best all-around tool for those switch-casters looking for the perfect reel for the job. Sized to fit the lighter spey and Skagit lines preferred on these versatile rods, the new Switch reel offers the right size, capacity, and super-strong drag Abel is renowned for. The pawl-click drag is full adjustable, surrounded by proven Abel corrosion-resistant anodized enclosed frame along with that sleek Abel made-in-the-USA feel.
