Just as the 5-weight rod has become the all-purpose freshwater choice for many fly fishers, great for everything from Trout to Carp and Bass, the Super 5N from Abel has been built to handle any virtually any situation thrown its way.
The large arbor gives you great line pickup while keeping coiling to a minimum, and the narrow width and low weight of the reel lends itself to excellent feel on 5-weight rods.
