A large arbor, narrow spool, disc drag reel expressly designed for 5- and 6-weight fly lines is the latest addition to the Abel arsenal of precision-machined products. It is sure to be a hit among the growing legion of saltwater anglers targeting bonefish, small reds, seatrout and others with lightweight gear.
The Super 5 Narrow or S-5N the reel was in development for about a year in an attempt to determine the precise ratio of narrow spool to large arbor. The combination of a narrow spool with a large arbor gives anglers rapid line retrieval capabilities and allows line to lay on the spool in larger coils, combating memory.
Abel’s newest reel was designed for small Gulf Coast reds, speckled trout, sea-run cutts, small stripers or blues and any other fish on a 5- or 6-weight rod. The 5.7-ounce reel employs Abel’s 100-percent cork disc drag system, is fully anodized and finished for both fresh and saltwater use.
