Great reel that won’t let you down. High quality parts that are built to last. This is one that will be passed down.

I have this reel in platinum and I really like the look - especially from the handle side. I like the sound of the drag better than the LTX/R, but when taken apart, there is what looks to be a bit of plastic. I like that the diameter of the spool on the 5/6 is smaller than on the LTX/R of the same size.

Recently acquired an Animas 5/6 (Matte Black) to pair with my Helios 3F. While I haven't had the opportunity to put it through true trial by fire at this point, I have to say it checks all the boxes when it comes to first impressions. It is extremely light, looks great, has a smooth easy to adjust drag and makes a great sound! Can't wait to take it out west next summer. This reel deserves more than the local panfish here in Louisiana.

Extremely lightweight, and the drag is very effective for catching 25+" trout on 5x or 6x tippet. It's also very quiet on both the retrieve and drag.

What a great reel, just paired it with my 5wt Radian and this bad boy looks “smart” and even catches fish. Played a 23” Cutthroat for 10 minutes magically this past weekend. I have a few Ross reels and this one did not disappoint- and the price is right.

One of the best reels out there. Smooth as butter

I purchased the Ross Animas 5/6, and put it on a 5 weight Scott Radian. This setup has amazing balance. The reel is extremely smooth, and beautiful to look at.

I got my 5/6 Ross Animas reel last week. This reel is everything asked for! Reel Fly Rod, sent it on time and all was great.... No damage, I recommend them, you won't be disappointed!
