The SDF comes on the heels of Abel's move to Colorado: the trout-based surroundings inspired them to take it up a notch.

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.

Abel took what was learned from their SDS (Sealed Drag Salt) design, made sure to include the unmistakable Abel fit and finish, and created the best freshwater reel they have ever seen.
