Abel SDF Series Sealed Drag Freshwater Fly Reels (Black) w/ Solid Frame

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 Abel's move to Colorado. Inspired by their new trout-focused, the SDF take freshwater fly reel performance 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. Taking what was learned from their SDS design, with the unmistakable fit and finish Abel is famous for, the exciting new Abel SDF Freshwater Series Sealed Drag System Fly Reels are sure to please.
