It goes without saying that the machinists at Abel are masters at creating bulletproof fly fishing reels that continually breach the limits of high performance drag systems. What's more is that they are pieces of art. We just unboxed a brand new Abel Mode
Description

Winner of the best new saltwater reel at the 2016 ICAST/IFTD show, the Abel SDS (Sealed Drag Salt) takes all the power, reliability, and smoothness of its smaller counterpart and combines them in a larger package capable of taking on saltwater gamefish of all sizes. A unique multi-disc drag system yields an industry leading 20+ pounds of braking power, and is completely sealed from the elements. Available in 3 sizes beginning in January, 2017, this makes the SDS perfect for fighting big bones on light tippet as well as providing the power needed to halt hard-fighting tarpon in their tracks.

  • Reel frame, spool, drag knob and foot made of 6061-T651 cold finished aerospace grade aluminum
  • Alternating stacked carbon composite and stainless steel disc drag system
  • Quick change spool
  • User convertible retrieval direction
  • Made in USA
