Abel Grateful Dead 50th Anniversary Fly Reel Set 5N,6N,7-8N,9-10N,11-12N

This unique combination of a machined, and hand painted anodized graphic is limited to only 500 total reels, and is available in 5 sizes of Super Series reel models. In this one-of-a-kind set, you will be receiving all 5 sizes (5N,6N,7-8N,9-10N,11-12N). Though only 38 11-12 WT Grateful Dead Abel reels were ever made, this rare set will give you the ability to own every size of this beautiful reel. Additionally, there are only 15 11-12 WT reels that are not either owned by Streams of Dreams or sold to Streams of Dreams customers. A reel set such as this is a true future-classic that is certain to appreciate as the Dancing Bear or Steal Your Face models have already. There were a decreasing amount of reels created as the reel's Weight Class increases, so a full, unused set with the 9/10N and 11/12N WT reels is quite special.  

The 50th anniversary logo for the Grateful Dead ® is by the far the most sophisticated graphic Abel has ever accomplished on their reels. The intricate skull, roses, and EST. 1965 banner are precision milled .020” into the reel frame before partially filled with a proprietary epoxy paint resulting in a stunning image that you can both see and feel. The additional details are meticulously painted by hand with an anodized finish that not only looks great on display in your home or office, but can be confidently fished in a fresh or saltwater environment without damaging the reel. The spool of the reel is then finished off with a gold anodized handle to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead ®.
