At first glance, it would appear that the new Evolution R Salt from Ross Reels is just an upsized version of last year's new Evolution R. Of course, the machining is flawless and the design is impressive. But, what separates the Ross Evolution R Salt from the Ross Evolution R?
For those that have hooked into a strong saltwater fish on a fly rod, you know that stopping power and low start up intertia are musts when it comes to wrangling saltwater species. You can confidently check both of those boxes with the new Evolution R Salt.
The Evolution R Salt is like the Evolution R on steroids. The really good kind that Barry Bonds took (allegedly). More than doubling the number of stainless steel and carbon flouropolymer discs with a grand total of 16 discs (the Evolution R has 7 discs), the fully sealed, super lightweight, large arbor Evolution R Salt generates nearly 30 pounds of drag pressure. That makes the R Salt the most unique, best performing reel per dollar of any on the water today.
Check a couple more boxes for asthetics and pedigree, as the Evolution R is truly a beautiful reel made in Montrose, Colorado.
Come on down to the store to check them out. The Evolution R Salt is available in sizes 7/8, 9/10, and 11/12 in both Matte Black and Platinum colors and starts at $595.
