We’re starting to get into the very best saltwater reels. Enter the Ross Evolution R Salt: long name, amazing results. It’s Ross’s first true entry into the saltwater game since the Momentum was discontinued a few seasons ago. While the Momentum was kind of a meh reel, they’ve done tons of R&D and this reel is a game changer.
Based in Montrose, Colorado, Ross is one of the world's leading fly reel manufacturers. Over the years, Ross Reels have become a virtual household name in fly fishing. We really liked the Ross F1 fly reel the last time we tested it, and we were particularly excited to see how it would fare in a freshwater-oriented test.
