Ross ReelS CLA 5 8-10wt Fly Reel (Larger Components for bigger Fish!)

The CLA has set a new standard for affordable, hybrid large arbor Fly Reels. This Series incorporates a superior drag mechanism that is extraordinarily smooth, heat resistant and provides incredible stopping power. While the CLA is offered at a reasonable price, no design features have been overlooked. Each reel in this Series is designed with a specific diameter and width to maximize the Properties of drag consistency and quick line retrieval. The CLA has become our dealers' "go to" Reel for anglers that are looking for an American made, high quality, reasonably priced Fly Reel.

The mechanical design of all CLA Reels is consistent throughout the Series, but improvements have been made to the four Largest sizes (4-7) to support their use in battling bigger fish. When comparing the Larger CLA Reels to the Smaller sized 1, 1.5, 2 and 3 Reels, you will find that they have a larger sized drag knob, handle and spool cap, but most importantly, they have a STRONGER DRAG SYSTEM. To ensure smooth performance with Fast-running fish, the four Larger sized CLA Reels have also been equipped with oil-impregnated bushings for improved spool rotation. The frame and spool have been reinforced to eliminate flexing when battling heavyweights. With a wide range of sizes available, the CLA Series is appropriate for any fishing application, including Spey.
