Model SD - Rainbow Trout Finish

The Abel SD (Sealed Drag) is the first Abel with a smooth and fully sealed drag that can be counted on in even the harshest conditions that Mother Nature throws your way. It features a virtually non-existent startup inertia that will keep your tippet from breaking when even that monster brown trout strikes hard, and bolts off towards the horizon. Not limited to just freshwater, the SD reel also bridges the gap between heavy fresh and light saltwater use. From cranky steelhead weather to tough saltwater environments, the fully sealed design means no corrosion or failures.


  • Reel frame, spool, drag knob and foot made of 6061-T651 cold finished Aerospace grade aluminum
  • Alternating stacked Rulon®, and anodized aluminum disc drag system
  • Adjustable 330 degree angled cam system drag knob features 24 detents (clicks) of adjustment for virtually infinite settings using a reliable, proven draw bar tightening system
  • Quick change spool
  • Made in USA
