Abel TR Reel

R10,500.00 incl.


The return of a classic. The new Abel TR stays true to the roots of the original, but with a striking modern design and feel.

The partial porting of the frame draws from the Abel lineage, and its unique features are as inventive as anything Abel has ever produced.

Crafted by Abel’s expert machinists in Montrose, Colorado, the TR is a lightweight masterpiece. An integrated, precision-balanced clicker on the spool eliminates the need for a counterweight, yielding a clean look and retaining an iconic click-pawl sound. The pronounced palming rim is deliberately shaped to manually control drag pressure in all fishing conditions. The TR also features a large-arbor spool engineered to reduce line memory and increase retrieval rate. Machined stainless steel accents on both the frame and spool add that extra level of detail found only in an Abel reel.
