|Abel Surefire Light
The "marriage" of Abel and SureFire was natural: both companies are noted for precision machine work and uncompromising quality.

|Abel Spey Fly Reels
To meet the demands of steelhead, salmon and other big water anglers using Spey techniques, we’ve come up with the definitive tool: the Abel Spey Reel. It has been engineered, machined and anodized meticulously as you would expect, but also created with a specific design and capacity aimed at long-rod anglers.
|Abel Super Series Fly Reels
Large Arbor Models are heading into their fifth year - long enough to be on the winning end of a lot of big fish stories. The Expanded Large Arbor Super 7 is making its debut. Abel Large Arbor Super Series Reels have spools that are 100% interchangeable with spools of comparable-size standard Abel Big Game Reels. We call that InterchangeABELity. Example: with a Super 8 frame and Big Game #3 spare spool, you have created two distinctly different reels with different capacities and capabilities. The Super 8 holds an 8-weight line with 200 yards of 20# backing, the perfect weapon for bonefish, school stripers and reds; while the interchangeable #3 spool will hold a 12-weight line plus 250 yards of 30# backing for tarpon and sailfish. Nothing else can compare. No other reels have the ability to interchange spools and frame and no other has the Abel drag system that gives you the ability to Stop-a-Sub. All Super Series reels are ported 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.
