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.
