Ross Colorado Fly Reel
Designed around the Ross click and pawl system, the Colorado provides ruggedness and the signature of the all-metal clicker. Designed, machined, and assembled in Montrose, Colorado USA.
The Colorado's beautiful aesthetics are defined by aerodynamic shapes and surfaces. The look of this reel is different from anything on the market today. An innovative, all-metal external clicker accentuates the back of the reel, complete with a machined silhouette of our local San Juan Mountains and a classic click-pawl sound. The spool is more open than its predecessor, making the face of the reel appear spacious and clean. Notice the beveled large arbor shows off the backing and line.
The partial caged frame adds unmatched strength and rigidity, but with only a minimal weight gain. It's just sufficient to balance out a wider range of lightweight rods. The industry-first bushing is fully machined from Vesconite - a material specifically designed to be used in the toughest marine bearing applications, guaranteeing a lifetime of flawless operation.
Anglers will find this classic sound and feel meets modern strength and design to make the Colorado a functional piece of art - both on and off the water. With every angle and material carefully analyzed and considered, the new Colorado is designed to be fished from small streams, as well as medium and large rivers.

Another fantastic Ross Reel!
Of all the reels I own, this one is sure to be a favorite for years to come. The appearance and function of this simple click pawl are fantastic, it is truly fun to fish with. I have it paired with a lighter weight graphite rod, but it would work well on a glass rod too.
