Product Overview:

Following the success of their widely successful "Steal Your Face" Grateful Dead Edition reels, Abel has released the second series of these limited edition reels. Only 250 will be made, and Trouts Fly Fishing has been allotted 6 in sizes 4N - 11/12N. These will be sold on a first come, first served basis, and should be available around the middle of September. All sizes are available for Pre-Sale.
Price From: $850.00

Product Description

As a leader in machining technology, Abel wanted to continue the special tradition of these reels by utilizing a new machining procedure that actually CNC mills the Dancing Bears .020" into the aluminum frame at a speed of 40,000 RPM before filling them in with a proprietary epoxy paint resulting in an ultra clean image with a texture you can both see and feel.

Set against the "outdoorsy" feeling forest green tie-dye background requested by the band, this limited run of 250 reels is sure to sell out as quickly as the first edition reel.
