If it swims, there’s an Abel Reel for it. Reels are machined from cold finished 6061-T6 aircraft quality aluminum. As defined by Alcoa, “Aluminum rod is brought to final dimensions by cold working [finishing] to obtain improved surface finish and dimensional tolerances. Extra processing steps are taken to ensure enhanced product performance!” Reels are then precision machined (not die cast) on C.N.C. lathes and mills. They are then both machined and hand de-burred, hand polished, cleaned and inspected. The end result is a lightweight reel that’s tough as a moving van and destined to be fished by you, your children, grandchildren and theirs!
