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. Now available in 3 sizes from our Authorized Dealers, 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
