Introducing the new Ross Reels Evolution R Salt. The Evolution R Salt is a breakthrough product, designed with a power-to-weight ratio never before seen in a saltwater fly reel. This makes the R Salt the most unique, best performing reel per dollar on the water today, all in a stunning package.

Fishing in the salt is a grueling endeavor. The conditions are tough, and the fish can be even tougher; so we developed the Evolution R Salt to stand up to anything the sea can throw at it.

The R Salt builds on the foundation of its smaller sibling, but instead of the Evolution R's 7-disc system, it features a supercharged 16-disc sealed drag system comprised of stainless steel and carbon fluoropolymer, producing nearly 30 pounds of drag pressure. Also an industry first, the R Salt features two smaller counterbalances on the spool - this innovative design reduces mass and creates perfect, vibration-free performance when line is being ripped off the spool on long runs.

This exceptional braking power is housed in a lightweight, yet incredibly strong frame and spool that is based on the Evolution R's unique design. The large, frame-integrated drag knob allows for easy on-the-fly adjustments with just the palm of your hand during long fights with oversized quarry. The R Salt's geometry is reinforced throughout, yielding an incredibly rugged, yet elegant reel that performs in the most challenging of environments.


- Fully machined in the USA from our proprietary 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, models start at just 7.5 ounces | Innovative dual mini counterbalances reduce mass.

- Industry leading power-to-weight ratio in a fully sealed system | Proprietary carbon fiber and stainless steel disc stack.

- All internal components are machined stainless steel, finished with a special coating for saltwater durability.

- Fully machined canvas phenolic rod, resting on a 7075-T6 chromated aluminum post yields reduced weight and increased grip when wet.

- Type II anodized for the perfect balance of hardness and color.

- Quick release spool and easy left-hand to right-hand retrieve conversion.

- Available in 7 to 12wt line sizes.

This thing has some brakes!! I love the palm designed drag as well as the notch on the spool to keep line in order. Holds plenty of backing and you get it back each crank with is large arbor beast!
