SUPER 5N
 Just as the 5-weight rod has become the all-purpose freshwater choice for many fly fishers, great for everything from Trout to Carp and Bass, the Super 5N from Abel has been built to handle any virtually any situation thrown its way. The large arbor gives you great line pickup while keeping coiling to a minimum, and the narrow width and low weight of the reel lends itself to excellent feel on 5-weight rods.

Animas


Ross Animas Fly Reel






Ross Animas Reel
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.

Evolution LT


The Evolution® LT is unquestionably one of the lightest fly reels ever produced. This large arbor fly reel is a machining masterpiece and the lightest in its class. The Evolution LT is fitted with an aluminum spool cap, aluminum drag knob and aluminum escapement cover. Our customers have been asking for more metal in their fly reel and that is exactly what you are going to get! To keep the weight in check with these improvements, we have also added ventilation to the spool and the frame, allowing for the addition of metal components with no measurable weight increase. This series is designed for those anglers who appreciate both art and function. The cosmetic innovation and precision workmanship of the Evolution LT series is only surpassed by its drag system which is precise and sensitive - capable of protecting the lightest tippets even when battling world-class fish. To guarantee the level of dependability consumers have come to expect from all Ross products, the Evolution LT series has been designed with a triple redundancy drag system, providing three backup systems to ensure dependability under the most demanding conditions.

Momentum LT


The MomentumTM LT reel series is the strongest and most dependable big game fly reel on the water today. The drag system is based on Carbon Fiber technology, chosen because of its stiffness, strength, heat resistance, shock-dampening capabilities and infinite fatigue resistance. The Carbon Fiber used in the Momentum LT drag system is STRONG, measuring 700ksi (700,000 pounds of force per square inch) which is more than 10x the tensile strength of the aluminum frame that carries it. In fact, the Carbon Fiber used in the Momentum LT series is also vastly stronger than steel, and even titanium! With 6.3 square inches of effective drag surface, the Momentum LT series has three times the stopping power of every competitive reel tested. Simply stated - the Momentum LT is the strongest fly reel on the market today. A triple redundancy drag provides three backup systems to ensure dependability under the most demanding fishing conditions, and by adding in features like titanium drag components, a quick-release locking spool and water shedding grooves on the palming rim, you have the ultimate big fish fly reel.
