Ross Evolution Fly Reel

Ross Reels pioneered true large arbor technology, and not just by making the spool wider!  The fly fishing industry has changed considerably since Ross Reels introduced their first fly reel almost thirty years ago. One of the reasons for Ross' long-running success is their ability to adapt as the fly fishing market continues to evolve. That is why Ross believes the "Evolution" is the perfect name for their latest reel. The Evolution is the best in large arbor technology. It is the perfect reel for 1wt. through 7wt. rods. No detail was overlooked during the two years Ross devoted to developing what is arguably the finest mid-priced trout reel on the market today.
To guarantee the level of dependability consumers have come to expect, Ross modeled the Evolution's drag system after the highly successful Canyon Big Game series. Even though the drag design is probably more than one will need for light tackle pursuits, it is guaranteed to handle any species your rod can match. Because a durable drag system is only one component of a perfect reel, great time was also invested into developing a drag system that is precise and sensitive - capable of protecting the lightest tippets even when battling world-class fish.
The Evolution series was designed to balance with today's modern rods. It is lightweight, but built sturdy to ensure a lifetime of flawless performance. The spool has the perfect ratio of width to arbor diameter that provides all the benefits of large arbor technology. While other manufacturers settle for a standard width for their entire series of reels, Ross has assigned each of the five sized Evolutions a different width, ensuring the best match between diameter and width among the full range of sizes. The Evolution will surpass the expectations of the most discriminating angler, and as with all Ross Reels, the Evolution is guaranteed for life.

Ross Evolution Fly Reel Specs.

Drag Material: A friction base DelrinŽ material that is impervious to heat, compression, glazing, aging and crumbling.

Drag Engagement:
An escapement (one-way drag) that provides smoothness, simplicity, redundancy, corrosion resistance and ease of conversion (L/H to R/H wind). The escapement is totally corrosion resistant, uses no springs that are easily lost or rusted, and has quadruple redundancy. This redundancy provides three backup systems within the drag to ensure dependability under the most demanding fishing conditions.

  • Fully machined out of premium bar stock aluminum
  • Advanced space-age disc drag system resulting in perfect, controlled, repeatable drag settings
  • Lightweight design with a fully ventilated, perfectly balanced spool and frame
  • Pleasant incoming and outgoing click
  • Seamless transition between line-in and drag engagement (no start-up friction)
  • Quick release locking spool
  • Easy LH/RH retrieve conversion
  • Rapid retrieve
  • Exposed spool rim for palming
  • Saltwater approved
  • Guaranteed for life
