Abel TR Reels - Painted

Abel

$850.00 - $950.00

These hand-painted Abel TR reels are one of a kind, and absolutely stunning. Abel knocked it out of the park with the return of the TR reels, an iconic classic reel! The TR's are stunning pieces of functional art. Minimal porting brings out those classic aesthetics and strikes a nice balance between lightweight yet still with that solid Abel feel. The TR features a beautiful sounding click and pawl, a Rosewood handle and a large arbor spool that is easy to palm. 

All Abel TR Reels come with a very nice Cordura reel pouch.

The options shown are what we currently have in stock. If you would like a custom reel painted by one of their signature artists, or in one of their hand crafted finishes please give us a call at 425-742-2402 or contact us via email to place a special order.

Here is what Abel has to say about their TR Reels:

The return of a classic. The new Abel TR stays true to the roots of the original, but with a striking modern design and feel. The partial porting of the frame draws from the Abel lineage, and its unique features are as inventive as anything Abel has ever produced.

Crafted by our expert machinists in Montrose, Colorado, the TR is a lightweight masterpiece. An integrated precision-balanced clicker on the spool eliminates the need for a counterweight, yielding a clean look and retaining an iconic click-pawl sound. The pronounced palming rim is deliberately shaped to manually control drag pressure in all fishing conditions. The TR also features a large-arbor spool engineered to reduce line memory and increase retrieval rate. Machined stainless steel accents on both the frame and spool add that extra level of detail found only in an Abel reel.
