Ross F1 fly reel series is destined to revolutionize modern fly reel design. The F1 is a complete departure from conventional thinking and incorporates the most innovative features found in any fly reel today. Inspired by the break system utilized in Formula 1 race cars, the F1 is an integration of carbon fiber and stainless steel; utilizing eight independent contact points to produce the smoothest and most dependable drag system on the market today. Two square inches of carbon fiber drag surface results in unsurpassed stopping power and heat dissipation. The spool fits to a carbon fiber stabilizer which utilizing two fully sealed stainless steel ball bearings to provide precision fit and smooth rotation. The F1 employs a Ross original clutch bearing that is fully sealed and enables retrieve conversion without removing the bearing- an industry first! The extensive use of carbon fiber in the drag system, spool stabilizer, handle and spool release provide system strength and rigidity, while reducing overall weight. Ten separate o-rings completely seal the system, making it totally impervious to the drag-changing effects of water. The entire system is controlled by a constant-torque drag knob with a 56:1 mechanical advantage; resulting in uniform drag knob rotation and infinite drag adjustment.

Ross F1 Fly Reel

 

Best New Fly Reel: Ross F1 #3 

A good midweight fly reel isn’t all about the drag, but if it can’t handle fish, who cares about the rest? The Ross F1 #3 (for 5- to 7-weight lines) has the right kind of guts. The carbon-fiber drag system incorporates 2 square inches of surface area and eight independent contact points for a smooth, uniform application of pressure through its substantial tension range; the drag knob turns through four full revolutions for pinpoint resistance settings. At the low end, it’s silky and consistent enough to handle 6X tippet on large trout. Crank it up and there’s plenty of muscle to hog big browns.

The system is entirely sealed by 10 separate O-rings, and the spool rides on two sealed stainless bearings for effortless rotation. An integral reel foot gives rock-solid stability, and the frame rigidity is worthy of a saltwater reel. The F1 comes in six sizes, from 2- to 12-weight. --TL
