• SD 4|5

    The smallest of our Sealed Drag models, the SD 4/5 provides an ultra smooth drag when utilizing the lightest of tippets for finicky fish in delicate water. The virtually non-existent start-up inertia featured on our sealed drag system will give you the additional confidence needed when also chasing those trophy sized fish on a 4 or 5 weight rod.


    • Reel frame, spool, drag knob and foot
      Made of 6061-T651 cold finished Aerospace grade aluminum
    • Multi-Stacked machined drag system
      Our fully sealed, proprietary Rulon® machined composite stacked discs are smooth enough to protect the lightest tippets but still capable of stopping large game fish. The fully sealed design means no corrosion and no failures.
    • Infinitely adjustable cam
      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.
