It is nothing to do with clogging up the bristles of the brush, it is to do with the strength of the hair of the brush. Unless a sable brush is very short, the natural hair is too soft to really work that gel onto the surface of the nailplate for your first layer. Longer bristles would also tend to drag in the gel rather than move it effectively whenr you want to put it.

Not to say that one can't use a sable brush and if that's all you've ever used, no doubt you have perfected a technique with it that works for you ... however most find it easier to use a brush with synthetic hair (cheaper too)!!

Another point is that Sable is great for holding liquid... not really a need for gel ;)

Synthetic bristles for the reasons I mentioned.
