Fly Fishing Reels: Abel's New Super 5 Narrow

The new Super 5 Narrow (“S-5N”) is a large arbor, narrow spool, disc drag trout reel expressly designed for 5- and 6-weight flylines. “The American-made S-5N is machined from cold finished 6061-T aircraft quality aluminum. ‘Cold finished aluminum is significantly more expensive than extruded aluminum; but the cold finishing process dramatically increases the molecular density. It creates a stronger metal. Reels are then precision machined (not die cast) on C.N.C. lathes and mills,’ said [Abel spokesman Don] Swanson.” Email Abel Reels for more info.
