Vaya-(MSRP $495 and up) Sizes: 4/5, 5/6 and 7/8: The Vaya series debuts an all-new technical look and feel paired with outstanding performance. The partially-ported frame offers the unique combination of minimalized weight, incredible rigidity, and just enough surface area to highlight Abel’s hand-anodized finishes. The interior frame also features varying 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 5 disk alternating carbon/stainless multi-drag system produces substantial resistance, while providing a wide range of adjustability for delicate tippet. Users can also convert the retrieve direction. At $495 this should be everyones “Go” to reel!
