The TR is Abel’s new-and-improved version of their classic reel with a click-and-pawl drag system. The new TR features a striking modern design with a huge range of color options and style choices. The TR is lightweight, strong, durable, and efficient. This is the perfect reel for trout junkies who prefer a modern aesthetic and traditional performance.
Classically Modern - Similar to the new VAYA reel, the TR has a partially ported design for increased rigidity and durability. The TR also features an integrated precision-balanced clicker, a classic click-and-pawl drag system, and a quick-change spool with a threaded release cap. This reel was built for performance but also includes milled fly silhouettes inside the frame and other aesthetics that make these reels a true work of art.
Hand-Anozied Finish - The finish on the TR is made to protect the reel when it’s dropped or dinged. Hand-anodizing is strong and durable for increased reel life and worry-free angling. Many major manufacturers use this finishing because of its lightweight makeup and rigid protection from the elements. This finish also allows Abel to hand paint all reels and the TR comes in a variety of color schemes.
Machined Aluminum - The TR is built with machined Aluminum which has a few benefits. Aluminum is both abrasion-resistant and corrosion-resistant. If you happen to drop or ding your reel, machined aluminum resists corrosion even when abraded. This type of aluminum is commonly used in aircraft and boat/automotive construction and contributes to the TR’s lightweight, durable build.
Type - The TR is built on a classic click-and-pawl drag system for an old-fashioned aesthetic. The reel also features a pronounced palming rim that allows anglers to manually control the drag pressure of the reel in any angling scenario.
Materials - The drag system utilizes stainless steel to produce an iconic click-pawl sound and to prevent over spooling and to protect light tippets. These drag systems are time-tested and engineered to preserve the tradition of click-and-pawl while using modern technology.
Large Arbor - The large arbor of the TR increases line pickup and helps anglers fight the largest fish in both freshwater and light saltwater scenarios. Most contemporary fly reels are made with a large arbor design to allow anglers to pick up as much line as possible with as little work as possible.
Abel Warranty - As of December 2019, Abel products carry a lifetime warranty that covers the repair or replacement of parts due to defects in material or workmanship. This warranty is not transferable and is only valid when an Abel reel is purchased through an authorized dealer. Abel also repairs reels for an additional cost.
