I use this rod for freshwater LM bass fishing. I wanted something well build but i don't need a fully sealed drag. So far this reel has performed well. It is ultra light weight and looks well built. I will be purchasing another for my 7wt.

I can’t say enough about Ross reels. Quality and functionality is absolutely unmatched. Sure you can spend money on a more expensive reel but you won’t get any more performance. They make some of the best reels I’ve ever fished! 10/10 would buy it all over again

Reel is lightweight, lighter than previous model, has a very good drag. Line capacity is as specified. 7/8 reel held up to a week of hard streamer fishing including two browns 24", both drift boat fishing and wading.

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!

I own one in every line weight offered and they have been fantastic. Hard to complain about these!

Beautifully machined reel. So far so good.

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.
