ROSS REELS EVOLUTION R SALT 11/12 FLY REEL
The award-winning Ross Evolution R Salt Fly Reel is a marvel of engineering, with a power-to-weight ratio never before seen in a saltwater fly reel. At its heart, lies an ultra-smooth, supercharged 16-disc, completely sealed drag system comprised of stainless steel and carbon fluoropolymer, producing an incredible 30 pounds of drag pressure – enough to stop an Abrams tank. This exceptional braking power is housed in a lightweight, yet incredibly strong frame and spool that is based on the Evolution R unique design. Evolution R Salt reels are incredibly lightweight, tipping the scales at a mere 8.85 ounces.
Ross Evolution R Salt 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 color and make them impervious to the harshest saltwater conditions. R Salt is also the first fly reel to feature a large, frame-integrated drag knob allowing for easy on-the-fly adjustments with just the palm of your hand during long fights with big fish. The R Salt's geometry is reinforced throughout, yielding an incredibly rugged, yet elegant reel that performs in the most challenging of environments.
Also an industry first, the R Salt features two smaller counterbalances on the spool - this innovative design reduces mass and creates perfect, vibration-free performance when line is being ripped off the spool on long, blistering runs. 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. Evolution R Salt reels are truly a beauty, while also being a ferocious best. Meet the next generation of big-game saltwater fly reels – the Evolution R Salt.
