Abel Reels without built-in obsolescence!
The biggest thing that separates Abel Reels from the rest of the herd is no built-in obsolescence. Abel Reels were proven before they went to market and in all these years very few improvements have been necessary.  If you bought an Abel in 1987, it is still totally reliable today.  That is because instead of adding glitzy du-das to the mechanism, Abel concentrated on simplicity and craftsmanship.  The fewer parts involved, the fewer parts to break down.  Abel Reels are are hell for stout.  Mark Bachmann and Patty Barnes use Abel Reels on all of their saltwater adventures.

Get A Grip With Abel's Aluminum Handles
Abel 6061 aluminum reel handles are 1/8th inch longer than the standard wooden handles. They feature knurled finger grip and are fitted with a hand-pressed DelrinÆ insert for the absolutely smoothest feel this side of vanilla ice cream. Their weight precisely matches the weight of the counterbalance. They won’t chip, fracture, splinter or snap no matter the temperature or conditions. They are, in a word, forever. In Small, Medium and Large sizes for various sizes of Abel Reels. Available in any color finish. $25-75 on a new reel.
Two Pawls Are Better Than ONE!
All Abel Super Reels feature the "Double Pawl" system in the internal mechanism of Super Series reels #6N and larger reels.  We never knew any of the old single pawl reels to break down.  So this insignificant change becomes very significant in the way that the folks at Abel think, "Eliminate problems before they happen!"  We have tested several Abel reels that were built with double pawls. You're going to like the sound they make.
