ROSS EVOLUTION R FLY REEL

Ross best fly reel to date the new Evolution R is years of experience from our engineers’ and machinists’ artistic and technical achievements.

The new Evolution R is not only beautiful but also lightweight, incredibly rigid and durable, with a unique geometry that is as functional as it is stylish. The innovative shape of the ultra- large arbor spool is engineered to force the even winding of the line across the face of the spool as it is retrieved - something never before seen in a fly reel.

The new tech drag design is also an industry rst: a fully sealed, bonded carbon fluoropolymer and stainless steel interface that delivers smooth power in a lightweight, compact package. Start up inertia is virtually non- existent to protect the most delicate of tippet. The Evolution R’s extremely wide range of brake adjustment also manages to produce some of the highest drag pressure found in a fly reel.

This all is controlled by a subtle yet striking, frame-integrated drag knob that blends perfectly into the form of the reel. Its solid grip allows for easy manipulation of settings - even while wearing gloves. Couple this with the canvas phenolic handle, rst introduced by Ross Reels, the on-the-water functionality of the Evolution R is second to none.

MONTROSE, Colorado -- On the heels of a successful summer season, Ross Reels has released their 2017 Catalog. Highlights included the award-winning Colorado LT, the Animas S and a much anticipated new product, the Evolution R. "We're very happy with our complete line-up, and particularly satisfied that almost 100% of our reels are new product - all released in just a over a year," said Jeff Patterson, EVP and Dir. of Sales.

The Evolution R headlines the new line-up.  "This may be the best product we've produced in a long time, and that's saying something," added Patterson. The "R" series has been a secretive project for nearly 18 months at the Colorado factory, with product testing going on for a majority of that time. A painstaking sourcing of exotic materials and advanced machining methods make the "R" an angler's dream. Look for the Evolution R to hit Dealer shelves this coming April.

Ross Reels has evolved since our founding in 1973, but our mission has remained the same: to create the finest fly fishing tools available. 

MADE ON THE WATER® is more than just words; it is our commitment to quality, innovation, and rigorous testing built into every product, the guarantee of our skilled professionals to continually exceed expectations, and the satisfaction Ross customers feel when using our tools on the water.

Ross Evolution R 5/6

Review by Andy on 3/9/2021

I did a lot of online research for a new reel. Ross kept coming up as top rated. For the type of terrain I fish, I needed a hearty reel. After reviewing online sellers, I decided to call the Platte River Fly Shop. Lynn and Ryan were very helpful in discussing my fly reel choices and figuring out the best fly line for my needs. They are knowledge, helpful, and are very customer focused.

Came to me at a great price and in excellent condition. Even during this Pandemic, the folks at WFF worked with me to ensure I had the retrieve handle on the correct side, and that the line weight and backing were as I chose. Excellent service!

Review by Keith on 6/15/2018

Excellent reel, super smooth drag. Add in the free backing and a fly line from the crew at Platte River Flu Shop, you have a great value.

Ross Evolution R Fly Reel is Great
