All Abel reels can be switched to either right or left hand retrieve. We will call you upon purchase of your reel to confirm retrieval as well as the color of your free backing.
ROVE: /rōv/ - travel constantly without a fixed destination; wander.
Built to fish anywhere and everywhere, the ROVE series of reels was created to give anglers the ultimate peace of mind on the water regardless of conditions or location. The field-serviceable, proven Abel cork drag system along with the simplified design approach from our engineering team make this the reel that even guides in the Seychelles will trust in their arsenal.
This is not your delicate, ultralight, classically elegant reel for alpine meadow fishing. We already have that model in our lineup. This is your ultra-tough, ultra-reliable, high capacity, beat-me-up adventure reel that will go where you want to go without feeling a need to have a backup reel in your limited carry on space. Get out and wander the world with it!
