Designed for anglers who appreciate both art and function equally, the Evolution is a high-performance hybrid large arbor fly reel that is a machined masterpiece. Upon first sight, you can see and feel that the Evolution by Ross Reels virtually defines perfection. The innovation and precision workmanship of the Evolution is only surpassed by the reel’s silky smooth drag system which is both precise and sensitive, to protect super-light tippets even when playing world-record fish.

This reel is unbelievably light so you won’t experience fatigue even after thousands of casts and long days on the water. Even though it is among the lightest reels in its class, the Evolution is built to endure and offer you a lifetime of smooth operation. Each reel model in the Ross Evolution series is machined with a unique arbor diameter and spool width to maximize the properties of drag consistency and line retrieval.
