Product Description

The 2019 Animas takes the time-proven features that made the original Animas a guide favorite and incorporates new machined features that bring it into the modern era of Ross. A fully-redesigned frame and spool are highlights of the new Animas. The spool shows off the cutting-edge manufacturing techniques Ross Reels has developed, delivering a design that is incredibly strong and visually stunning. The Animas also re-joins the family by incorporating an ultra-light canvas phenolic handle which gets tackier when wet. A new trouble-free spool release yields zero-maintenance performance, allowing the Animas to be ready for any fresh or saltwater excursion. The frame is accented by a machined silhouette of the Colorado mountains in Ross Reels’ backyard. Its uniquely ported design and structural profile are eye-catching industry firsts. The two-tone drag knob sports an updated aesthetic with a lower profile and increased grip. An improved composite drag system delivers more power in an established Ross design used and loved by more than 80,000 fly anglers the world over.

Great Gearing and Finish

This is the first Ross reel I have purchased. The construction and finish exceeded my expectations and the gearing and drag work exceptionally and better than my other reels. I am very happy with this purchase!!

Awesome Reel!

You definitely pay for quality with this reel. Its not bulky and heavy nor is it annoyingly loud. One thing to look out for is the plasic drag clicker inside. It wears out making the reel quieter than is already is but if you like a smooth and quiet reel, dont worry about it. Ive owned an Animas for a few years now and I havent had any serious issues with it.

Great Reel

Stopped in the shop this past summer and picked up this reel. It’s a beautiful piece of equipment and very smooth to reel. The guys were very helpful as always and I’m very happy with my purchase so far.

Best Reel I’ve Ever Owned

This reel is so nice. It is extremely good looking on your fly rod and gives me confidence when I’m casting and playing fish. I would not change it out for any other reel I love it so much. The guys in Trouts did a great job helping me pick it out as well and gave me advice on what weight to get as well that would match up with the fish I was going after. Overall 10/10 experience and 10/10 reel

Ross Animas Rocks!

Paired the new Ross Animas with my Sage 6-weight for a recent trip to the White River. Cast streamers on the first day with a sink tip, and the reel worked perfectly. Next day, I used the same gear to fish a double nymph rig; again, the Animas worked perfectly. Reel has a great drag, smooth and easy to set, nice click sound, and is absolutely beautiful in the platinum finish. The Colorado flag, mountain, and stream etched into the side is a nice touch. Also, totally made in the USA.
