Ross Reels are manufactured right up the road in Montrose, Colorado, by folks who fish the same rivers as we do. We’ve been tight with Ross for over 20 years — what a great manufacturer!  There are no better reels on the market, at any price.

The Ross reel lineup is headlined by the Evolution Series.  Models Evolution R, Evolution R Salt and Evolution LTX represent a family that shares an overall design strategy but offers varying levels of drag sophistication based upon the task for which they are intended.  Many trout anglers will find the Evo LTX to exceed their needs on the trout stream.  It’s a beautiful reel with a large arbor spool and smooth drag system.  The Evolution R has a fully sealed drag for a lifetime of use in both fresh and saltwater, while the Evo R Salt offers all of those qualities with an enhanced drag that achieves the best ratio of stopping power to weight of any reel in the industry.
