The Best New Freshwater Reel at the 2017 ICAST/IFTD Show
The SDF (Sealed Drag Fresh) is based upon another award-winner, the SDS (Sealed Drag Salt). It's a scaled-down version 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. Abel took the best from the SDS design, such as the unmistakable Abel fit and finish, and created the best freshwater reel on the market.
Features of the SDF Ported Fly Reel:• 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
