A MACHINING MASTERPIECE - LIGHTEST IN ITS CLASS
The Evolution LT™ is unquestionably one of the lightest fly reels ever produced and this series is designed for those anglers who appreciate both art and function. This large arbor fly reel is a machining masterpiece with cosmetic innovation and meticulous workmanship only surpassed by its precise and sensitive drag, capable of protecting the lightest tippets when battling world-class fish.
Anglers who have been asking for more metal in their fly reels will get exactly that as the Evolution LT™ is fitted with an aluminum spool cap, drag knob and escapement cover. To keep the weight low with these improvements, Ross added ventilation to the spool and frame, allowing for the addition of metal components with no measurable weight increase. To guarantee the level of performance 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.
Available in three color choices: traditional black, grey mist, and green. These reels perform just as good as they look.

1wt. - 9wt.
Designed for use in all freshwater, warmwater and saltwater fishing environments
I paired this reel with a Hardy Zenith 4 wt and have had excellent results. It compares favorably with other top quality reels and provides worry free function fishing small flies for big fish on the spring creek and in small fly fishing on larger streams. The drag is smooth and the adjustments are quick and easy. It's a good step up from the old Gunnison that I still fish and love.
