    ABEL SDS 11/12 FLY REEL (Tarpon Finish Shown)

    The Abel SDS (Sealed Drag Salt) Fly Reel is one of the finest saltwater fly reels ever made, and won the best new salwater reel at ICAST/IFTD. The Abel SDS takes all the power, reliability, and smoothness and combines with a larger, more powerful drag system capable of battling on saltwater gamefish of all sizes. A unique mulit-disc drag system yields an industry leading 20+ pounds of braking power, and is completely sealed from the elements. This makes the SDS perfect for fighting big bones on light tippet as well as providing the power needed to halt hard-charging tarpon in their tracks.

    I never thought the super series would every be upended, but these SDS reels are as good as it gets. They do what they're suppose to do every time without fail. They're light, strong and have the smoothest drag on the water. They also happen to look great as well. Abel has done a masterful job with these. ReelFlyRod customer service is second to none. Questions answered promptly and prices can't be beat,
