The Award-Winning Abel SDF Fly Reel was selected as the best new freshwater reel for by Fly Fisherman Magazine and Won Best of Show at ICAST/IFTD. Based on the bomb-proof SDS (Sealed Drag Salt), the Abel SDF (Sealed Drag Fresh) is a smaller, lighter version of the award-winning saltwater titan featuring similar porting and a sealed, stainless steel and carbon fluoropolymer drag system that is impervious to the elements and maintenance free. The Abel SDF boasts an enormous amount of drag, an adjustment range almost three times greater than its predecessor, and virtually zero start up inertia. Abel took what was learned from their SDS design, made sure to include the unmistakable Abel fit and finish, and created the best freshwater reel we have ever seen. Whether you are stalking trout, steelhead, bass, or salmon, the Abel SDF Fly Reel is the ultimate freshwater fly reel to grace any high end fly rod.
