That's a good point. However, it should be noted that the price of the Abel CFO is half of what Orvis is charging for the current British-made version.

Also, the Abel Classic costs quite a bit more than the new CFO or the Trout or Creek reels offered by Abel, assuming that they all should be priced similarly, since they are all click & pawl reels.

I don't think the price point on the CFO is unreasonable.
