Ross Evolution LTX Fly-Fishing Fly Reel
The Ross Reels Evolution series defined the modern trout reel. Now meet the Evolution LTX: the perfect combination of original Evolutuion LT feel and Evolutuion R performance.
The ultra smooth drag found in the Evolution LT has a long and revered history, but our enigineering team took this design to the next level. The drag debuting with the LTX is not only sealed but also four times stronger than its predecessors', while retaining the sound and feel that helped make the Evolutuion an icon.
The large arbor spool includes an innovative line channel for clearly 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.
The LTX also incorporates a handle machined from canvas phenolic rod (another Ross Reels innovation), which reduces weight, adds durability, and increases grip when wet. These improvements make the LTX a true light saltwater contender, perfectly at home on the flats as it is on the shores of a western river.
We are proud to announce that the Evolution LTX won Best New Saltwater Reel at the International Fly Tackle Dealer show in Orlando!
While the Evolution LTX 7/8 is a fantastic in-shore saltwater reel, it is also one of the finest trout reels ever made. It has a silky-smooth drag that can both protect fine tippet and crank down to fight big fish in the fastest water. All of this in a lightweight, precision machined design. Or, as Robert Morselli of Midcurrent said, "The [LTX] is brute force packed into an impressively light package."
These meticulously designed features of the LTX converge in a light weight package, redefining the trout reel for another generation.
