Derek DeYoung Purple Cheeks
Scott Cherry one of Abel's five in house artists, sent me this time lapse shot of a Derek DeYoung Signature Series Abel Reel being handpainted in the Caramillo, California facility. Having just returned from spending a week at the Abel factory, I can honestly say the work they do there is incredible. Each one of these reels is a treasure. I know because I have one of these little bad boys for filming! Everything that goes into an Abel reel is precision machined right there in the factory at Abel. NO OFF SHORE... NO OUTSOURCING. 100% Made in America. Big shout out to the Abel team who treated me like family while I was there!
