Abel Super Series Reel Review

Abel Super Series Dimensions

Few reels can do it all. Since 1999, the Abel Super Series has been one of those reels capable of fishing for any fish in any environment. It’s truly an all-around fly fishing reel. The Abel Super Series was revamped in 2017, but a few things will never change about it:

  1. The super-smooth, infinitely adjustable cork drag system will out last any other reel on the market if cared for properly.
  2. The Super Series has a machined frame made of 6061-T651 cold finished Aerospace grade aluminum & large arbor spool for unmatched line retrieval speed.
  3. These reels are badass!! The have an extremely appealing and unique design with many options.

Abel redesigned the Super Series reel with an all new line of light weight sizes that feature a quick change spool system achieved by eliminating the previously removable locknut and drag knob. The Super Series is on the cutting edge of fly fishing reels without compromising the integrity of its classic design.

No change on the impeccable drag system. It works on creeks for small trout and light tippet, and is completely capable of slowing down a big Tarpon intent on leaving the flat. 

Super Series Drag

There is a level of quality in every Abel reel that is hard to find anywhere else in fly fishing. All you need to do is pick one up to know what it's worth. The standard black color is their base model in the Super Series. The reel is also available in various other colors with a gloss or satin finish. From there you have the paint options of one of Abel’s signature designs or something from their Artist Series. The color and design options are seemingly endless. Call us to customize yours.

Looking good isn’t all you get with an Abel Super Series though. The reel is so smooth in every way that it makes fishing quite pleasurable. You can practically hear and feel the quality craftsmanship in the reel when retrieving line or playing a fish. This is a fly reel you will leave to your granchildren!
