    Head for the sea.

    The Ross Evolution R Salt Fly Reel is ready to help you haul up a megalodon. Just kidding, you should stay away from those things, they’re dangerous. However, this reel does mean business for some big fish. The supercharged, sealed drag system gives this reel a power-to-weight ratio that keeps you from going for a ride when you hook a creature who would very much like to return to the depths. As the line is pulling off your spool, count on the two spool counterbalances to provide vibration-free performance. An anodized finish resists damage from long-term exposure to salt water, so this beautiful reel stays looking sharp for many adventures to come.

    Love this reel!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    First off, it's gorgeous! So smooth. Super easy to adjust, drag on the fly and retrieves line very quickly. I put my biggest fish to date in the net with it no problem!

    Beautiful Pike/Bass/Redfish Reel

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The Evolution R is one of the best designed and beautiful trout reels on the market. The Evolution R Salt is similarly a work of art but when you are chasing big game likely to send line screaming off the reel, adjusting the drag in real time can be a tricky affair to make sure you don't get your finger tips caught against the spinning inside reel.

    For fast moving fish like tarpon, false albacore, tuna, bonefish, etc. I would stick with a reel with a sealed panel or a drag adjustment bumped back further from the inside reel to make fast adjustments on drag.

    For bigger fresh water fish like pike, muskie, bass and slower moving salt water fish like stripers or redfish, this is still one of the best and elegantly designed reels on the market.
