Default Abel Beaver Meadow reel...thoughts

Was wondering if anyone has one or has heard anything about this line of Abel reels made for JP Ross fly rods. They're going for $200 right now...

Beaver Meadow Reel by Abel (classic design) | JP Ross; Small Stream Fly Fishing

Evidently you can't get these Abel reels from anyone else.

Thanks for your time!

The reel is a click and pawl style that is a special make up model for JP Ross. I do not know the dimensions of the reel.

This is not the first time that Abel has made special make up models for a retailer.

They look to be a non ported TR 0. If that's the case then they are definitely worth the 2 bills. I love my TR.
