The All-New Ross Animas Fly Reel is Available for Pre-Order

Ivan Orsic / Oct 10, 2018

There's a good reason that we've had the Ross Animas on every guide rod for the past two years. They're dependable, durable, and American-made. Well, the good people at Ross Reels over in Montrose have given the old reliable Animas an update to match some of the recent upgrades they've made to their roster of reels. The Animas' drag system is an improved version of the original, reliable Animas drag - which is the most dependable drag system Ross has ever produced (only 5 failures out of the 80,000 plus units that have been manufactured and live out on the water).

Featuring an ultra-large arbor, canvas phelonic handle (that grips better when it's wet), and increased machining, the new Animas is lighter weight and stronger than it's predecessor. Let's not forget, the new Animas still free spools like a champ. The all-new Ross Animas fly reel, which 100% Made in the USA, is available in sizes 4/5, 5/6, and 7/8 in both black and platinum and are priced at $295.00 for all sizes.

The new Animas will ship in mid-November.
