Ross F1 Reels

The Ross F1 is a large arbor, carbon fiber fly reel that's built for serious anglers. With its eight point contact system, lightweight design and high tech appearance the reel is one of the most innovative on the market.

The Ross F1 fly reel features an eight point drag system which offers smooth performance you can depend on. Drag is created by a carbon fiber disc system, with a full two square inches of surface area. This increases the stopping power of the Ross F1 fly reel and dissipates heat far more effectively than other models.

The spool, drag system handle, stabilizer and spool release system are made almost entirely from carbon fiber. This provides extra durability and strength while decreasing the overall weight of the reel. The reel is also designed with a one piece frame and spool, making it a strong and durable model.

The clutch bearing of the Ross F1 fly reel is designed "in house" by Ross. It's fully sealed, meaning it isn't exposed to moisture or dirt that can negatively affect performance. The full drag system is sealed by ten o-rings.

Ross F1 fly reels are available with line weights from 2 to 11 depending on your chosen application. The reels are designed to deal with saltwater, freshwater and warm water environments. Three colors are available – black, silver and Guide Finish – and all Ross F1 fly reels have an anodized finish for extra durability.

Ross F1 Fly Reel Reviews

Great Review by Will
Posted on 7/20/15
I bought this reel a little while ago for my main fly rod, a five weight sage, and it is one of the better reels I have purchased. The drag kicks in great on bigger fish and makes me feel I like I have great control over the fish. I have dropped this reel many times on pavement, rocks, boulders and mud and it has never made a major dent or scratch. I have not had any problems with it so far!
disappointed Review by mark

I purchased this reel with some reservations about spending $500 on a reel. The drag seemed to engage slowly when I hooked a larger fish. I also question the durability of the outer rim of the spool. It is a grooved edge that fits onto the reel. I fell and the rim bent, I sent it in and Ross "repaired" it. I was disappointed that it is not up to par and that they did not replace the spool. Overall I feel the F1 is not worth the price.
