The Vexsis defines modern Ross technology and is built around a powerful drag system consisting of Carbon Fiber, Rulon and Ceramic. The Carbon supports mechanical strength, infinite heat and fatigue resistance and shock-dampening. The Ceramic provides an incompressible heat resistant surface that maintains drag consistency. By combining these elements in the correct sequence with self-lubricating Rulon, you end up with a perfect brake system! In addition to a world-class drag, the Vexsis series is loaded with modern reel technology, including the first ever Magnalock magnetic spool release system that powerfully pulls the spool onto the frame and securely locks the system. The drag knob incorporates a revolutionary multi-ball thrust bearing drag for an almost perfectly linear drag response, resulting in a constant, smooth feel through multiple knob rotations. Regardless of how much drag has been applied to the Vexsis system, the drag knob rotation is effortless. In addition, a dual radial pawl escapement provides a backup system to ensure dependability under the most demanding fishing conditions. The Vexsis truly is the pinnacle of modern fly reel design.

In addition to a world-class drag system, the Vexsis series is loaded with our most modern reel technology: Magnetic Spool Release

The MagnaLockâ„¢ spool release is a magnet-driven system that uses 4 Ni-Cu-Ni (Nickel Copper Nickel) plated NdFeB (Neodymium Iron Boron) grade N40 magnets to secure the spool onto the frame. With an operational life of more than 1000 years, this system will always perform flawlessly.

Linear Drag Knob Rotation
The drag knob incorporates a revolutionary multi-ball thrust bearing drag for an almost perfectly linear drag response, resulting in a constant, mechanical feel through multiple knob rotations. Regardless of how much drag has been applied to the Vexsis system, the drag knob rotation is effortless. This provides the Ross system with greater drag range and usability when compared to every competitive reel tested.

Instant Retrieve Conversion
The twin pawl "over-center" style escapement allows the user to convert the direction of retrieve from left-hand to right-hand with a quick turn of the escapement cover. In less than one second, this conversion can be completed without any tools or disassembly.

Each reel in this series is designed with a specific diameter and width to maximize the properties of drag consistency and quick line retrieval. A dual radial pawl escapement system ensures dependability under the most demanding fishing conditions, and by adding in features like a recessed counterweight that will not snag line, modern machining and a lightweight design, you have reached the pinnacle of modern fly reel design.
