Answering customer and dealer requests, Abel will be adding four new reel models to its Super Series for 2011. 2011 marks the 12th year Abel has manufactured large arbor Super Series reels. These reels are constructed from aerospace grade aluminum, feature Teflon sealed bearings, and a drag system made at Abel’s factory from high-grade Portuguese cork (with a little neat’s-foot oil in it). Reel sizes 6 and above feature Abel’s double-pawl system.
Another popular feature of the Super Series reels is that they allow you to interchange back and forth between large arbor and standard arbor size spools.
The new models Abel has added are the Super 6N in both large (MSRP $625, spare spools are $285) and standard arbors (MSRP$575, spare spools are $250). Abel is also adding the Super 7/8N, in both a large arbor(MSRP is $700, and $315 for spare spools) and standard arbor (MSRP is $650, and $290 for spare spools).
