    2019 ROSS ANIMAS 7/8 FLY REEL

    The new Ross Animas Fly Reel takes the time-proven features that made the original Animas a guide favorite, while incorporating machining features that bring it into the modern era of Ross. A fully-redesigned frame and spool are highlights of the new Animas. The spool shows off the cutting-edge manufacturing techniques Ross Reels has developed, delivering a design that is incredibly strong and visually stunning. You will not find a more beautiful, powerful, durable, or functional fly reel in the sub $300 price range. 

    The Animas also joins the family by incorporating an ultra-light canvas phenolic handle which gets tackier when wet. A new trouble-free spool release yields zero-maintenance performance, allowing the Animas to be ready for any fresh or saltwater excursion. The frame is accented by a machined silhouette of the Colorado mountains in Ross Reels’ backyard. Its uniquely ported design and structural profile are eye-catching industry firsts. The two-tone drag knob sports an updated aesthetic with a lower profile and increased grip. An improved composite drag system delivers more power in an established Ross design loved by more than 80,000 fly anglers the world over. 

    FEATURES:

    • Fully redesigned frame and spool geometry with a bell shaped arbor, large arbor design, and intricately machined details
    • Precision CNC machined from aerospace grade T6061 bar stock aluminum
    • Ultralight weight with increased strength 
    • Machined canvas phenolic handle is incredibly durable and increases grip when wet 
    • Beautiful, two-tone aluminum accents
    • Powerful, improved composite disc drag system with stainless steel components
    • Maintenance free, completely sealed, self lubricating drag system
    • Innovative, modern style combined with a time-proven design
    • Backed by the Ross Reels Lifetime Warranty

    Ross reels are exceptional, and this Animas continues to be a workhorse. 8wt smallmouth rod and some light salt are destined to be in the reels future!

    The spool no longer goes on the reel. I have to take it apart to fix it in place. I've been able to deal with that but recently the drag stopped working and the reel freespools. I contacted Ross and they were very responsive and offered to service it for free, but in the meantime it's prime fishing and my reel is broken...

    I’m really happy with this reel and the quality is top notch. I use this on a rod I fish carp with and it holds up very well. The reel is a bit on the heavy side but it doesn’t bother me at all.

    I got this last year as a back up for my Evolution. Ended up putting a sinking pike line on this and a floating line on my evolution and used them both. This reel is heavier but not in a bad way. For sure this is better than a back up reel. It is a full time rig now!

    Where do I start with this review, I have been eying the Ross Animas since the newest model was released thanks to a great girlfriend I got one for Christmas in 2019. Like it or not the we are influenced by the look of things as much as the use, the Animas reel is a sexy reel between the platinum color and the porting, it’s a looker. Besides the great looks the reel is lightweight and paired up with my Orvis Recon to make a great rig to throw some streamers at both Texas bass and some redfish on the coast. It’s a real catch of a reel, it will catch the attention of fellow anglers and the fish you reel em in.
