CUSTOM FINISHES
INDIVIDUALLY HAND CRAFTED

Every Abel® product is a one-of-a-kind design, anodized individually by hand in our Camarillo, CA anodize workshop using our proprietary artistic metallurgical process. Graphics take anywhere from 2 to 14 hours for a single technician to complete. All of our products come standard in a high gloss black finish.

BASE PRICE = High Gloss Black Finish Simply add the base price of the reel to the price of each graphic shown below

Abel now offers 16 anodized colors in either a hand polished high gloss, or a textured satin finish that give you a total of 32 options to choose from in 2019. Take advantage of Abel’s ability to aesthetically pair up reels to compliment a fly rod brand, match a favorite sports team, or score some points with your “better half” on a product that shows you put some extra thought into a gift item.

4hr hand crafted finishes
Abel is the only company in the fly fishing industry that offers hand painted, and hand anodized products. The proprietary process we developed takes an incredible amount of time to accomplish, and requires even more patience from our team of factory artists to create. Each hand painted finish in our Tier 1 category requires a minimum of 4 hours to complete, and can certainly be considered a one-of-a-kind heirloom reel.

The complex designs in our Tier 2 category require at least 7 hours of our hand painting, and artistic anodizing process resulting in an iconic product available only through Abel Reels.
