Winner IFTD 2019! Abel VAYA Fly Reel in Solid Colors
Abel VAYA Fly Reel for Fresh or Saltwater is available in standard or custom colors and fish graphics. This new reel is uniquely machined to provide modern aesthetics. Features include 5-disc alternating carbon fiber/stainless steel drag and CNC-milled fly engravings on frame interior.
The Vaya series is hand-crafted by knowledgeable Colorado anglers. Get ready for the innovative technical look and feel paired with outstanding performance. Due to the partially-ported Vaya frame, this reel boasts minimized weight, incredible rigidity, and just enough surface area to highlight Abel’s hand-anodized finishes. The frame interior also features beautiful sets of CNC-milled fly patterns, relevant to each size of reel.
The large-arbor spool features a precision-balanced, dual-pawl drag engagement design that eliminates the need for a counterweight. The spool’s mechanical incoming click compliments the audible, smooth feel of the outgoing drag. The carbon/stainless multi-disk drag system produces considerable resistance, while also providing a wide range of adjustments for delicate tippet.
