ROSS REELS EVOLUTION R SALT 11/12 FLY REEL : 11-12WT
Need the best of the best for your saltwater fishing? Welcome the Ross Evolution R Salt Reel. The strongest disc drag on the market with the highest braking power for the hardest pulling fish.
Fishing in the salt is a grueling endeavor. The conditions are tough, and the fish can be even tougher. The Evolution R Salt was developed to stand up to anything the sea can throw at it. The R Salt builds on the foundation of its smaller sibling, but instead of the Evolution R’s 7-disc system, the R Salt features a supercharged 16-disc sealed drag system comprised of stainless steel and carbon fluoropolymer, producing nearly 30 pounds of drag pressure. Additionally, the R Salt features two smaller counterbalances on the spool, this reduces mass and creates perfect, vibration-free performance when line is being ripped off the spool on long runs.
This exceptional braking power is housed in a lightweight, yet incredibly strong frame and spool that is based on the Evolution R’s unique design. The large, frame-integrated drag knob allows for easy on-the-fly adjustments with just the palm of your hand during long fights with oversized quarry. The R Salt's geometry is reinforced throughout, yielding an incredibly rugged, yet elegant reel that performs in the most challenging of environments.
All of this comes together to create a fishing tool with a power-to-weight ratio never before seen in a saltwater fly reel, making the R Salt the most unique, best performing reel per dollar of any on the water today.

Wonderful reel! I researched 11/12 reels for days before pulling the trigger. I compared this, the Abel SDS, and a Hatch 9 Plus for my new 11wt Meridian. I chose the R Salt because it's very similar to the SDS with a better price tag, and it's much lighter than the Hatch 9 plus. The reel balances perfectly with the 9011-4; light rod, light reel. The drag is smooth and way more than I'll ever need. The design is beautiful. I'm pleased with my decision.
