The Bauer mentioned above isn't a sealed drag which brings me to question why you wanted it sealed? The top reels, the Tibors, Abels, Bauers and some such as the Old Florida reels were unsealed, and of a cork against teflon or other slick material design. These reels account for most of the Salt Water Records and rate veery high when reels are tested.
