"James Prosek-Inspired Striped Bass Super 8
A limited edition Abel Super 8 fly reel in a striped bass (striper) design inspired by artist and conservationist James Prosek to benefit the Coastal Conservation Association.
One hundred of the individually colored and anodized reels will be produced. Reels will be accompanied by a signed and numbered 11×14 gicleè print of a striped bass by Prosek. The print number will correspond to the reel number.
Reel number one and gicleè print number one will be donated to the Coastal Conservation Association by Abel. The reel and print will be sold at an on-line auction with all proceeds to the CCA.
Like all Abel Reels, the Super 8 is machined from cold finished 6061-T aircraft quality aluminum. Reels are then precision machined on C.N.C. lathes and mills. The reel was designed for an 8- or 9-weight rod in fresh, estuary or saltwater conditions. The 9.1 ounce reel is fitted with Abel’s 100% cork disc drag system and is fully anodized.
With a diameter of 3.900 inches and width of 1.125 inches, the Super 8 will carry an 8-weight line and 220 yards of 20-pound backing or a 9-weight with 190 yards."
