2014 marked the 15th year Abel has made Large Arbor Super Series Reels Super Large Arbor
All Super Series reels come standard ported (ventilated) using a "rounded oblong" design that maintains total strength and rigidity in the metal. They're light, yet retain all of Abel's traditional strength and integrity. Super Series reels are also available with a solid frame if you wish same price. (All weights given are for standard ported models.)
Reel frame, spool, drag knob and foot are 6061-T651 cold finished aerospace grade aluminum
Teflon sealed bearings are ISO9001:2000 and AS9100 Certified FAA TSO C149 Aircraft Bearings
Cork Drag System is made entirely in our factory. We use a superior high grade Portuguese cork with a little neats-foot oil on it.
Double Pawl System: Super Series reel sizes 6 and larger are built with our recently upgraded double pawl system. Advantages include: increased reliability, back-up strength and unique sound.
Reels also have the option of coming with a rosewood, ebony, zebra, walnut, or Aluminum handle.
With Abel's unique FlexABELity of spools and frames, it substantially increases your options. FlexABELity means spools from the Big Game Series fitting into the frames of Large Arbor Super Series and vice versa. Please see Reel Specifications for their FlexABELity - a feature that essentially gives you two separate reels for the price of less than one-and-one-half.
