The introduction of the Ross Evolution was the most successful launch in Ross Reels' history. Although the Evolution has only been on the market for two seasons, it has set the standard by which all other large arbor reels are judged. The first time you pick up the Evolution you will know right away that this reel defines perfection in every way.
The Evolution is the best in large arbor technology. It is the perfect reel for 1Wt. through 8Wt. rods. No detail was overlooked during the two years we devoted to developing what is arguably the finest mid-priced trout reel on the market today.
To guarantee the level of dependability consumers have come to expect from Ross, we modeled the Evolution's drag system after the highly successful Canyon Big Game series. Even though the drag design is probably more than one will need for light tackle pursuits, it is guaranteed to handle any species your rod can match. Because a durable drag system is only one component of a perfect reel, great time was also invested into developing a drag system that is precise and sensitive; capable of protecting the lightest tippets, even when battling world-class fish.
The Evolution series was designed to balance with today's modern rods. It is lightweight but built sturdy to ensure a lifetime of flawless performance. The spool has the perfect ratio of width to arbor diameter that provides all the benefits of large arbor technology. While other manufacturers settle for a standard width for their entire series of products, Ross has assigned each of the six sized Evolution reels a different width, ensuring the best match between diameter and width for each size. The Evolution will surpass the expectations of the most discriminating angler, and as with all Ross Reels, the Evolution is guaranteed for life.
Drag Material A friction based Delrin® material that is impervious to heat, compression, glazing, aging and crumbling.
Drag Engagement An escapement (one-way drag) that provides smoothness, simplicity, redundancy, corrosion resistance and ease of conversion (L/H to R/H wind). The escapement is totally corrosion resistant, uses no springs that are easily lost or rusted and has quadruple redundancy. This redundancy provides three backup systems within the drag to ensure dependability under the most demanding fishing conditions.
