The Evolution LT is unquestionably one of the lightest fly reels ever produced, and as such this large arbor fly reel is a machining masterpiece. This series is designed for those anglers who appreciate both art and function, as 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. Our customers have also been asking for more metal in their fly reel and that is exactly what you are going to get, since the Evolution LT is fitted with an aluminum spool cap, drag knob and escapement cover. 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. To guarantee the level of dependability consumers have come to expect from all Ross products, the Evolution LT has been designed with a triple redundancy drag system, ensuring dependability under the most demanding fishing conditions.
