Ross Evolution LT Fly Reel

The Evolution LT is unquestionably one of the lightest fly reels ever produced. This large arbor fly reel is a machining masterpiece and the lightest in its class. The Evolution LT is fitted with an aluminum spool cap, aluminum drag knob and aluminum escapement cover. Our customers have been asking for more metal in their fly reel and that is exactly what you are going to get! To keep the weight in check with these improvements, we have also added ventilation to the spool and the frame, allowing for the addition of metal components with no measurable weight increase. This series is designed for those anglers who appreciate both art and function. The cosmetic innovation and precision workmanship of the Evolution LT series is only surpassed by its drag system which is precise and sensitive - capable of protecting the lightest tippets even when battling world-class fish. To guarantee the level of dependability consumers have come to expect from all Ross products, the Evolution LT series has been designed with a triple redundancy drag system, providing three backup systems to ensure dependability under the most demanding conditions.

Ross Evolution LT Fly Reel Reviews

Ross Evolution 1.5 Review by matt
Posted on 5/1/17
Ross continue to refine their products and produce beautifully engineered reels. The evolution is another example of this. I believe they are the number 1 selling reel in the usa. No surprises.
A Really GOOD trout reel. Review by George

I have owned a Ross Evolution 1.5 in green for my Winston GVX 9' 4wt for several years and I LOVE it. It does everything a trout reel should do, does them well, does them with beauty and style. I would buy this again and again.
great reel for reasonable price Review by Colt

I have a 1 and a 2 sized LT reel and both are fantastic. They are made in Colorado which is a plus because I am also a loyal Scott Fly Rod collector. The drag is everything I need for trout fishing. The reels balance my Scott G2's extremely well and look great. If you want a quality reel that is reasonably priced and Made in the USA, the Ross Evolution LT Reel is the way to go.
Sweet Reel Review by richC
Posted on 7/19/16
It's a super sweet reel - if lightweight is important to you it's a feather. I don't believe in 5 stars for everything and I actually felt this was *too* light for me. It didn't have enough heft or substance to feel solid on my 5wt rig. Now, that is not a flaw in the reel - the thing is rock solid and the drag is great, it just didn't feel perfect in my hands, pulling line of the drag felt a little strained - hard to explain. I think above all, its a terrific reel if you are a minimalist. The ability and ease to change spools was incredible, push a button. Good value. Put it on your short list.
Your Last Reel Purchase Review by David
Posted on 8/2/15
I own the 1.5 model which I use with my 4 weight. For a number of reasons, this reel is perfect for the trout angler. First, so many people have a really light rod but then buy a bulky reel to go with it which causes lots of problems. With the Ross Evolution LT, this isn't a problem at all.
Moreover, the drag system used in the reel is something which will leave you drooling. It has basically no start-up inertia and it's range of drag will let you dial the drag into whatever you need whether it's small mountain trout or some hog from the Yellowstone.
Aesthetically, this reel is in a class of it's own too. It has the classic Ross craftsmanship and a nice (almost) large arbor design. It's going to look great on any reel.
Reel will last a lifetime Review by Risso

I have this reel in the #2 black model for over 2 years and couldn't be happier with it! Light, durable, easy to clean, excellent drag, made in the USA, and great looks. I live in Colorado, and it's nice to buy locally made products. This reel is SOLID!
