Abel Vaya Reel brings a new technical look and feel, paired with outstanding performance.
The partially-ported Abel Vaya Reel frame offers the unique combination of minimized weight, incredible rigidity, and just enough surface area to highlight Abel’s hand-anodized finishes.

The Abel Vaya Reel features a large-arbor spool with a precision-balanced, dual-pawl drag engagement design that eliminates the need for a counterweight. The spool’s mechanical incoming click compliments the audible, smooth feel of the outgoing drag. The carbon/stainless multi-disk drag system produces substantial resistance, while providing a wide range of adjustability for delicate tippet.
