Abel SDF 4/5 Custom Shop Fly Reel

This Abel SDF 4/5 fly reel features Abel's custom shop satin orange finish and black fade drag knob.  This in stock Abel custom shop fly reel adds an awesome and unique visual element to a super high performance fly reel.  Rosewood handle.

The Abel SDF Fly Reel, SDF stands for Sealed Drag Fresh, is a scaled down version of the award-winning Abel SDS (Sealed Drag Salt) fly reel. The Abel SDF has porting similar to the Abel SDS and features a stainless steel/carbon Fluoropolymer drag system. This reel has  a crazy amount of drag with an adjustment range that is 3 times greater than its previous model. One of the keys to protecting light leaders and not losing fish is its almost zero start up inertia.

Featuring the amazing Abel finish the Abel SDF may be the best freshwater fly reel on the water.


  • User convertible retrieval system
  • Large arbor increases line retrieval rate and reduces line memory
  • Almost a full ounce lighter than the original SD
  • 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
  • Quick change spool
  • Made in USA
