    This large arbor fly reel is a machining masterpiece and the lightest in its class. The Evolution LT is fitted with an aluminum spool cap, aluminum drag knob and aluminum escapement cover. Our customers have been asking for more metal in their fly reel and that is exactly what you are going to get! To keep the weight in check with these improvements, we have also added ventilation to the spool and the frame, allowing for the addition of metal components with no measurable weight increase. This series is designed for those anglers who appreciate both art and function. The cosmetic innovation and precision workmanship of the Evolution LT series is only surpassed by its drag system which is precise and sensitive - capable of protecting the lightest tippets even when battling world-class fish. To guarantee the level of dependability consumers have come to expect from all Ross products, the Evolution LT series has been designed with a triple redundancy drag system, providing three backup systems to ensure dependability under the most demanding conditions

    Reviewer: Steve M. (Spokane, WA)

    I've been a Ross advocate for many years, and the new Evolution LT (2) further defines excellence in a reel that is not terribly expensive and yet outperforms most reels costing hundreds more. A smooth drag system that is remarkably consistent throughout its adjustment range. That's important for me, as is the toughness of the frame. Partnered with a Scientific Angler's textured GPX and fished with my 5100-4 Sage One, I'm fishing with components that complement each other to the max. 5 stars. Love it.

    I have 2 Number 4. They balance very nicely on a G Loomis Classic GLX Wt 5. I had one issue with the lock of the spool gettibg blocked after using the reel in saltwater though I did rince it extensively after each session. Otherwise very smooth drag. Very nice positive drag adjustment and very elegant click. Butter smooth drag which have played beautifully fishes. Quite robust as well as I have fallen on mine and did scratch it but did not damage it.

    Ordered the Ross Evolution LT 2 reel for fishing on the Yellowstone and Big Horn rivers in Montana. Extremely lightweight and well engineered. Drag system is second to none. Worth every penny. A real surprise was that the reel arrived loaded with backing and line. Thanks Fishwest!
