The CLA has set the standard for affordable large arbor fly reels by incorporating a superior drag mechanism that is extraordinarily smooth, heat resistant and provides incredible stopping power. While it may be offered at a reasonable price, this is by no means a budget "compromise" reel as no options have been overlooked. The series is fully machined out of a proprietary aluminum alloy, fully anodized for protection and built to take the type of abuse applied to a reel that is used every day of the season.
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 sport of centerpin fishing is loaded with incredible history and tradition, but rather than simply reproducing a reel design that so many have done before us, we have incorporated our fifty-plus years of fly reel design into the Flow; a reel that has become the new standard for all centerpin reels.
The Momentum LT™ is designed with drag system is based on carbon fiber technology, chosen because of its stiffness, strength, heat resistance, shock-dampening capabilities, and infinite fatigue resistance. Additional features like titanium drag components, a quick-release locking spool, and water shedding grooves on the palming rim give you the ultimate big fish fly reel and ensures dependability and performance under the most demanding fishing conditions
