If we are making a rod for you with an acrylic reel seat insert, we actually can make a matching handle for your ABEL TR to match the set up.  These are made to order, but we can turn them around in about 2-3 weeks.  Shown here is our "beehive" material that has been popular on our S-Glass Beaver Meadow, as well as "pinecone" and "red swirl."  Ask if you want to see more. 

Info on the Abel TR Reel:

The return of a classic. The new Abel TR stays true to the roots of the original, but with a striking modern design and feel. The partial porting of the frame draws from the Abel lineage, and its unique features are as inventive as anything Abel has ever produced.

Crafted by our expert machinists in Montrose, Colorado, the TR is a lightweight masterpiece. An integrated precision-balanced clicker on the spool eliminates the need for a counterweight, yielding a clean look and retaining an iconic click-pawl sound. The pronounced palming rim is deliberately shaped to manually control drag pressure in all fishing conditions. The TR also features a large-arbor spool engineered to reduce line memory and increase retrieval rate. Machined stainless steel accents on both the frame and spool add that extra level of detail found only in an Abel reel.
