Its not often we get completely new and innovative products from a brand like Abel but these are sure to get tongues wagging! The last time it happened it was with the Abel Nipper, which at an eye watering £50, split the fly fishing community between those who were happy to carry on with their £1.50 line snips and those who just had to have the best selling and by far the best quality nippers ever made, with these trinkets being proudly worn around the necks of 1000's of discerning anglers in a rainbow of custom colours like a badge of honour up and down the country! The high price of this premium product certainly didn't put people off and Abel will be hoping their latest product, the Abel Hemostat, will also become a best seller!
Usual Abel build quality!
These are the first images released of the Abel Hemostat, or forceps as we more commonly call them on this side of the pond, and they just as stunning as you would expect! Made in the USA from lightweight aluminium with stainless steel hardware and replaceable jaws these are a thing of beauty which, just like the Abel Pliers, and Nippers, will be made to last a lifetime. And don't forget the Abel guys will make these for you in any one of their signature custom finishes as well as the standard Coral Black we all know and love!
And the price? Well they haven't worked that one out yet but as soon as it is made public we will let you know, but they wont be cheap - quality like this always comes at a price (just check out the Abel reels!)! If you would like to pre-order a pair from Glasgow Angling Centre, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org or ask instore to register your interest. The Abel Hemostat will be available to order online as soon as final pricing is released and stock should be with us in the early summer - watch this space for more info!
UPDATE! These are now on our website and available to pre-order for delivery in early June 2013!
