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 our engineering team took
this design to the next level. The drag debuting with the
LTX is not only sealed, but also 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.
