Abel SDF Reel in "Native Cutthroat" Colors

*Note: The reel pictured here is "ported" but it is also available with solid side at no extra charge. Free backing is also available on request. Most Abel reels are special order, please call us to confirm availability: 941-483-6847

Winner of the best new freshwater reel for 2018 by Fly Fisherman Magazine and Best of Show at the 2017 ICAST/IFTD industry trade show, the SDF comes on the heels of our move to Colorado: the trout-based surroundings inspired us to take it up a notch.

Based on the SDS (Sealed Drag Salt), the SDF (Sealed Drag Fresh) is a scaled-down version of the award-winning saltwater titan featuring similar porting and a stainless steel / carbon fluoropolymer drag system. The SDF boasts an enormous amount of drag, an adjustment range almost three times greater than its predecessor, and virtually zero start up inertia.

We took what was learned from our SDS design, made sure to include the unmistakable Abel fit and finish, and created the best freshwater reel we have ever seen.


SPECIFICATIONS

    • User convertible retrieval system
    • Large arbor increases line retrieval rate and reduces line memory
    • Almost a full ounce lighter than the original SD
    • Drag pressure ranges from zero to an amazing 10 pounds
    • Incredibly wide range of drag adjustment from zero to max
    • Designed & machined by trout junkies in Colorado
    • Quick change spool
    • Made in USA

     

    Note: Left Hand Retrieve is the default configuration. If you would like the Right Hand option, let us know either by phone or email. Note that this reel can be converted by the user, so it is not critical to decide now.
