Abel Flashlight in Fish Graphics
A flashlight with a beam bright enough to light a rocky streamside mountain trail and sturdy enough to last a lifetime is now available from fly reel manufacturer Abel. The American-made and fully machined aerospace aluminum angler's light is produced under contract with SureFire, Fountain Valley, Calif.
Weighing 4.2 ounces at 5.40-inches in length, the flashlight is equipped with dual output settings of 15 and 200 lumens.
The light is powered by two SF123A lithium batteries, providing 30 hours of continuous use at low; two hours at the highest intensity.
The AbeLight LX2 by SureFire is available in six finishes: matte green, matte brown, brook trout, tarpon, brown trout and rainbow trout.
"Any fly-fisher walking a creek trail after dark, camping or working their way back home after fishing saltwater flats or a hexagenia hatch needs a small, high intensity flashlight. The light must be lightweight, sturdy enough to survive a fall or dunking and as reliable as a fine watch. The AbeLight LX2 by SureFire answers all those concerns," said Don R. Swanson, Abel president.
The "marriage" of Abel and SureFire was natural: both companies are noted for precision machine work and uncompromising quality. Founded in 1979 - about the same time as Abel - their ever-expanding family of high intensity handheld lights has made SureFire synonymous with the best illumination tools the world has to offer.
