Ross Animas Reels

Ross Reels

 

The Ross Animas fly reels offer the smooth operation and flawless performance Ross is known for.  Ross Animas reels feature full machined aluminum construction with anodized finishes for freshwater or saltwater conditions.  The drag system is adjusted with a large drag knob and is butter smooth with a very low startup inertia, yet has the power for big, saltwater action.  The spool's large arbor design picks up line fast and minimizes line memory.

Ross Animas reels are very easy to convert from left to right-hand retrieve.  Each reel comes with a protective neoprene case and Ross's lifetime warranty for the original owner.

Here is what Ross has to say about their Animas Reels:

The Animas River flows rough and wild through southwest Colorado. Like its namesake, the Ross Reels™ Animas® reel will keep running no matter what it faces. With a custom two-tone anodized finish and solid aluminum frame components, the reel is coupled with a liquid-smooth and powerful drag system with low start-up inertia. The drag has a tool-less, simple right-to-left hand conversion and protects even the lightest tippet, vital when demanding quarry makes blistering, unexpected runs. The large arbor aids in retrieving all the line that just went through the tip-top.

The single-piece spool is elegantly ported for both aesthetics and weight savings. And in a first for Ross, the handle of the Animas® is fully-anodized machined aluminum with a reverse taper for increased control and excellent grip. The hours of engineering and design time taken to deliver the Animas® ensures the highest level of quality, something expected from every product wearing the Ross Reels™ logo. The Animas® is sure to be the go-to favorite of every angler to pair with their favorite rod.
