    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

    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!

    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.
