Classic design with awesome sound.
Lighter and slightly smaller than its big brother, the Abel Switch reel was introduced to be the perfect tool for the burgeoning switch rod community. It will easily hold 5/6/7 weight Switch or Spey lines with plenty of room for backing, without adding excess weight. Deep and throaty this reel has a loud ratchet and sounds amazing when connected to a large aggressive fish!
This is a great reel for most rods under 12'6" in the 7wt and smaller category.
“Simple yet elegant. My Abel Switch Reel is the perfect match for my old school reputation. It balances both my Switch and light Spey rods nicely and screams like a banshee when I hook up on a hot NW Steelhead. Not the choice if you want to go full stealth mode. I’m rocking the solid spool in Deep Green, love it.”
