Abel Dancing Bears Grateful Dead Series Reels

Following the success of their individually hand-painted Grateful Dead ® ‘Steal Your Face’ logo reels in 2013 the group’s iconic ‘Dancing Bears’ design has been licensed by Abel as the second pattern in the series.





Calling all Deadhead anglers…

As a leader in machining technology Abel wanted to continue the special tradition of the Grateful Dead reels by utilizing a new machining procedure that CNC mills the Dancing Bears .020” into the aluminium frame at a speed of 40,000 rpm before filling them in with an epoxy paint, resulting in an ultra-clean image with a texture that can be felt as well as seen.

Set against the ‘outdoorsy’ feeling forest green tie-dye background requested by the band the limited edition of 250 reels is likely to sell out just as quickly as the first series did!
