The Ross Reels Evolution series defined the modern trout reel. Now meet the Evolution LTX: the perfect combination of original Evolution LT feel and Evolution R performance.
The ultra-smooth drag found in the Evolution LT has a long and revered history, but the engineering team at Ross took this design to the next level. The drag debuting with the LTX is four times stronger than its predecessors’, while retaining the sound and feel that helped make the Evolution an icon.
The large arbor spool includes an innovative line channel for cleanly hiding arbor knots when winding on backing. The Ross Reels signature bell-shaped arbor design also adds strength, while helping to self-level the fly line across the face of the spool as it is retrieved.
The LTX also incorporates a handle machined from canvas phenolic rod (another Ross Reels innovation), which reduces weight, adds durability, and increases grip when wet. These improvements make the LTX a true light saltwater contender, perfectly at home on the flats as it is on the shores of a western river.
These meticulously designed features of the LTX converge in a light weight package, redefining the trout reel for another generation.
Solid reel, lightweight and balanced well on my Scott Centric 906FB. Landed a few 18-20 inch bows on it and no issues with the drag at all.
Love my new Ross Evolution LTX fly reel. Very smooth and the black with signature Ross logo looks great with my Sage R8. Also impressed with Trouts fast delivery - received the reel on the East Coast in a couple of days. Would recommend both Trouts and Ross.
Smooth and gorgeous. The large arbor picks line up incredibly fast. Very light, yet rugged.
Gorgeous large arbor design that performs as well as it looks. The drag is easy to adjust on the fly and love the handle that helps for traction when it gets wet. Very smooth!
I bought this for my trip to Montana and actually love it! It’s my go to in the Driftless region!
