Abel SDF Reel

Based on the success of the SDS (Sealed Drag Salt), the  Abel SDF Reel (Sealed Drag Fresh) is a scaled-down version of the award-winning saltwater titan.   With 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.


  • This Model – 6/7 Weight – Basic Black Finish – Ebony Handle
  • User convertible retrieval system
  • Large arbor increases line retrieval rate and reduces line memory

  • 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

  • Made in USA

Each Abel reel is a combination of superior function and fishing art.  There are so many combinations of color for us to stock them all.  If you would like to custom order an Abel reel that we don’t have, simply jump on the Abel USA website and select Outdoor Pros as the Authorized Dealer who helped you.  Then we can spool your new reel with your favorite line, help with switching retrieve or offer you other Abel products.  Have you seen our Abel nippers?
