Winner of best new saltwater reel at ICAST/IFTD 2016
The Abel SDS (Sealed Drag Salt) fly reel has got the big three: power, reliability, and smoothness. All masterfully engineered into a sealed package qualified to take on saltwater’s toughest inhabitants. The unique multi-disc drag system with an industry-leading 20+ pounds of braking power is completely sealed from the salt, dirt, and whatever other reel-destroying ingredients you get into. The Abel SDS comes in three sizes. Starting with the smoothness to protect your light tippet connected to sprinting bonefish, to the power to stop a dogging tarpon, and everything in-between.
