Ross Evolution LTX reels are lightweight, beautiful, strong, and butter smooth.  Hitting all the key features anglers want in a quality fly reel, it is no surprise the Ross Evolution LTX has won numerous industry awards.  Building on the legacy of Ross Evolution series reels from the past, the LTX is the best one yet and is worthy of consideration from the most discerning fly anglers.  

Ross Evolution LTX are true large-arbor reels for fast line pick-up and minimal line memory.  They have an incredibly smooth drag, which is a standout feature the moment you have one in your hands.  At first glance, however, the intricate machining of this fully machined aluminum reel will instantly catch your eye.  Lightweight enough to feel great on the rod, but with strength and integrity built into the frame and spool, the Evolution LTX is a contender for both freshwater and light saltwater action. 

Here is what Ross has to say about their Evolution LTX Fly Reels:

The Ross Reels Evolution series defined the modern trout reel. Now meet the award-winning 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 our engineering team took this design to the next level. The drag debuting with the LTX is over four times stronger than its predecessors’, while retaining the sound and feel that helped make the Evolution an icon. This allows it to perform not only as a perfect trout reel, but also has the power to take on saltwater game fish like Redfish, Bonefish, and Snook.
 
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.
