30% OFF! ABEL SUPER SERIES 7/8 QC "BONEFISH" by Tim Borski to benefit The Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (formerly Bonefish & Tarpon Unlimited). One hundred of the individually hand painted, anodized and laser engraved Bonefish design reels will be produced.

No tools are required for the fastest and easiest change of any reel in the fly-fishing industry. Super Series QC models utilize 6061-T651 cold finished aerospace grade aluminum for the spool and frame. The drive system is C64200 silicon aluminum bronze. Buna sealed micro-bearings are ISO 9001:200 and AS9100 certified FAA TSO C149 aircraft bearings. Its large arbor design provides the proper ratio of hub size to spool width for optimum line capacity, pick-up and performance. WAS $2000 (I have #29 of 100), NOW $1400
