Thread: Abel TR

  1. #1

    Default Abel TR

    I just purchased an Abel TR 1 off the auction site for a decent price. It arrived today, and I have to say that it looks awesome on my Orvis Superfine Touch. The gold hardware on that rod would not have been my first choice, but it has grown on me since it fishes great, and this reel goes all in on the gold, rapper bling look. I hope the local brookies feel uneasy about this as I'll be pounding off the beaten trail with this setup on the local thin blue lines.

    Sweet rod and a very nice reel. I have 2 TR’s and find them excellent reels for small water fishing. I like the dual colors on your TR. Mine are both all black. I also scored a superfine touch rod this past winter and actually like the gold trim. This rod is really cool so enjoy and catch some fish. SR

    Nice looking! I am a big fan of the original Abel TR's. IMO, they make my trout rods complete. Another Abel I am fond of is the Creek 1 in standard arbor.

    I have several of the older model TR's and love them. Great looking setup!

    I really like the Creek series with it's larger arbor for faster pickup, and they way they balance on my other rods. I have a standard arbor AC1 and AC2 that I used on my 4 and 5wt setups. I found an AC1 with the brook trout finish a couple years back for a little over 2 bills brand new. Love fishing that reel.
