Custom Finishes

CUSTOM FINISHES

Every Abel® product is a one-of-a-kind design, anodized individually by hand in our Camarillo, CA anodize workshop using our proprietary artistic metallurgical process. Graphics take anywhere from 2 to 14 hours for a single technician to complete. All of our products come standard in a high gloss black finish.

BASE PRICE = High Gloss Black Finish

4hr hand crafted finishes

“These designs are actually painted by hand?” We get that question all the time when our products are on display at the fly fishing shows we attend, and YES, they absolutely are. We developed a proprietary anodizing process that allows our art department to painstakingly apply by hand the various colors on our products with a paintbrush. While these finishes are “painted” on, it is important to know that the colors are actually anodized, and will not chip or fade over time. Each hand-painted finish in our Tier 1 category requires a minimum of 4 hours artistic anodizing time to accomplish, and can certainly be considered a one-of-a-kind heirloom reel.

7hr hand crafted finishes

The detailed studies we conducted in our art department have proven that some of the graphics we hand-paint take much longer than others to complete, and only a limited number of our factory trained artists can execute our most difficult patterns. The complex designs in our Tier 2 category require at least 7 hours of our hand painting, and artistic anodizing process resulting in an iconic product available only through the team at Abel Reels.

Artist Signature Finishes

We’re honored to feature, and replicate the work of a few of the most talented artists in the fly fishing industry. Derek DeYoung, Andrea Larko, and Jon Osiris are also each great ambassadors for our sport, and we’re proud to have teamed up with them to provide select examples of their beautiful artwork on Abel Reels. As usual with Abel, we are not cutting any corners in order to bring you the best products available. The Artist/Signature Series of our tiered graphics require a minimum of 10 hours of hand painting and artistic anodizing time, and in some cases over 14 hours to replicate. Our top team members in the Abel art department utilize a single bristle paintbrush to accomplish sections of these difficult graphics, but in the end an incredible piece of artwork is completed and worthy of the original artist’s name engraved on the reel.
