Used Abel SDS 11/12 Black #2


For sale is a used Abel SDS 11/12 in fair condition. This reel has been fished hard and seen some action. Like many reels used in saltwater this one shows signs of use from salt corrosion but has been deep cleaned and has a lot of life left in it at a good price. The drag functions properly and remains very smooth, the hub and internal post show some signs of discoloration from corrosion, see photos. Overall the real is in good working order but shows signs of hard use. Some rim rash is also visible on the black finish.   

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 f, 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.
