    I understand it is milled from solid, aircraft grade, aluminum barstock, rather than being stamped, like similar ladders at a lower price point. Also, it is made in the USA, and not imported from Asia.

    Rumor has it that for an additional $699, you can get your ladder custom-imprinted with graphics representing a brown trout, brook trout, Lahontan cutthroat or a Mt. Whitney rainbow.

    But Kent, will it come with burl steps? And in four pieces? Will TSAS allow it in an overhead bin?

    Saw this one yesterday at Pyramid. It was custom made.

    But if you want to buy a cool one, Crosby's Lodge sells one for only $275. You'll have to add your own Abel sticker however with the money you save, you could buy some spray paint and give it trout colors and spots, lol.

    Freestone. I assume you are in Reno or near there. I truly hope you are fishing the Truckee river out east. If you take the mustang exit ant hang a right on the offramp you will immediately see a small parking lot. Walk down stream until you get to the rapids. Monsters lurk in there! Especial in the calm water in the side channel. Huge fish are on the hunt right now with browns and bows pushing 8lbs possible!

    Thomas, thanks for the tip! I wish I were still there but I left last night. I'll save your tip for next time though.
