    The Ross Evolution LTX is the next generation in premium, high-end trout reels. The award-winning Evolution LTX is an engineering marvel, with a drag system 4x as strong as its predecessor, in a beautifully crafted, lightweight package to perfectly balance fly rods weighing mere ounces.

    The new, ultra-smooth drag system retains the sound and feel that made the Evolution an icon, but now incorporates a stacked disc drag system based on the Evolution R saltwater reels, resulting in a powerhouse drag system that would be overkill if it wasn’t so lightweight. This allows it to perform not only as a perfect trout reel, but also has the power to take on saltwater game fish like Redfish, Bonefish, and Snook.

    The Evolution LTX drag system is built on an oil-impregnated bronze brushing, rotating on a stainless steel spindle post. Ross Evolution LTX reels are CNC machined to exacting tolerances in Montrose, CO from proprietary aircraft grade T-6061 barstock aluminum. These gorgeous reels are then hard anodized for the perfect balance of durability and color. The large arbor spool includes an innovative line channel for cleanly hiding arbor knots when winding on backing. The Ross Reels signature bell-shaped arbor design also adds strength, while helping to self-level the fly line across the face of the spool as it is retrieved.

    The LTX also incorporates a handle machined from canvas phenolic rod, another Ross Reels innovation, which reduces weight, adds durability, and increases grip when wet. The meticulously designed features of the LTX converge in a light weight package, redefining the trout reel for another generation.

    Nice reel, but…
    C.M.T. (NC) | May 10th, 2024
    First let me say this indeed a nice, well made reel and I like it. However, it is not made for rough conditions. In order to achieve its light weight some rigidity was sacrificed. I can squeeze the frame and effectively stop the reel from turning. I cannot do this on my other reels (Galvan). If you drop it on something hard it will probably bend as it has for me. Again, this is a nice reel, but if you do a lot of rock hopping, brush busting, or just kinda clumsy, this is not the reel for you.

    Little “Hulk” of a Reel
    AC (CA) | March 8th, 2024
    Got the 3/4 in matte olive (green) and it’s a great reel to balance to my scott g 883 and when 20” browns are on the smooth and strong drag it’s like the incredible HulK saying “I got you you little puny fish” Great esthetics on an strong but extremely light reel.

    Great Reel

    I am a huge fan of this reel and have both colors. Especially like the handle that gets grippy when wet. Highly recommend.

    Ross LTX Review
    Dave (Charlotte, NC) | November 8th, 2020
    Purchased 3/4 in black and couldn’t be more pleased with performance and feel. Top quality product as you would expect from Ross. The textured handle helps prevents slippage even when wet. Besides the aesthetics and light weight, I really appreciate the ‘knot slot‘ in the spool when trying backing to reel. They aren’t cheap, but IMHO, Ross makes the best freshwater fly reels In the business. ReelFlyRod customer service was exceptional when I called to exchange 3/4 for the 4/5 model in order to improve balance with rod.
