The Abel SDS Fly Reel in my opinion is a beautiful , functional piece of equipment, designed tough to withstand the rigours of saltwater water. Great for Bonefish, Mactuna, Trevally & any smaller Pelagics
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 Tie ‘n’ Fly Outfitters, 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.
“The Abel SDS 7/8 reel is excellent for medium sized saltwater speedsters. Here in Australia perfect for small Golden Trevally, Blueys, Tuskies and heaps of trevally species.” Gavin
