    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.

    I have the platinum version and it exudes saltwater ruggedness. It’s quite a beautiful reel. Lightweight as well. I have smaller hands so don’t have an issue with the atypical drag knob. It is a bit different though.

    Great reel

    I have this reel in black on my Salt HD 8wt. I like how light the reel is and the drag adjustment is very cool. I haven’t had any monsters on this reel but I have tested the drag lightly on some smaller fish.
