GUNNISON

All new for 2018

Availability: Out of stock

Made in USA


Cutting through the Black Canyon on the Western Slope of Colorado, and only 10 miles from the Ross Reels factory, the storied Gunnison river inspired the name for one of the most iconic, reliable, and best-selling fly reels ever produced.


As a tribute to the original aesthetics, the Gunnison is designed with octagonal machining, round porting, and a leader groove on the frame. That is where the similarities part ways, as the new Gunnison represents the best in modern reel design while retaining all the reliability and ruggedness of the original.

Cutting through the Black Canyon on the Western Slope of Colorado, and only 10 miles from the Ross Reels factory, the storied Gunnison river inspired the name for one of the most iconic, reliable, and best-selling fly reels ever produced.

As a tribute to the original aesthetics, the Gunnison is designed with octagonal machining, round porting, and a leader groove on the frame. That is where the similarities part ways, as the new Gunnison represents the best in modern reel design while retaining all the reliability and ruggedness of the original.

While the unique frame geometry and spool profile echo the original Gunnison, the contemporary porting and large arbor design make this a modern, bulletproof package with retro styling. The Gunnison also has a high-performance drag based on the same platform as the new Evolution LTX, creating a reliable and powerful system impervious to the elements.

At the end of the day, replacing what was the favorite (and in many cases the first) fly reel of so many anglers was a daunting task. These were huge shoes to fill, but the new Ross Reels Gunnison has risen to the occasion.

I am truly impressed with the new 2018 Ross Reels Gunnison Reel. Review by In the Riffle

I am truly impressed with the new 2018 Ross Reels Gunnison Reel.

The Gunnison has a great look to it! A blend between old/new looks, as well as classic/modern technology. The Gunnison is a beefy reel, made to take punishment and abuse. The Gunnison Reel has been updated with a modern stacked drag system, large arbor and increased porting. The beauty in the Ross Gunnison is it's simplicity. The matte black finish is understated and classy. The simple round porting is a nod to it's simple but classy roots. Just what I look for in a reel.

The reel also purrs just like a fine watch with a incredibly adjustable drag system that can be fine tuned for any situation. This one finds it's way into my kit and is absolutely In The Riffle approved!!

AN ODE TO A CLASSIC Review by Blake Katchur
Quality
I fished my first Ross Gunnison over 20 years ago. At that time the Gunnison reel was known to be a fish every day, all day super durable classic, that would handle big fish runs and do it in style. And perform just the same year after year.

I can attest to that longevity as I have fished my original Gunnison all around the world and it has never faltered in my hands.

When I heard that Ross was bringing out a new Gunnison reel I was excited and anxious. I have had the opportunity to fish this new design a few times during its development and Ross knocked it out of the park. While keeping to the aesthetics roots of the old design, the new reel is a completely different animal. With a serious disc drag to match its tough look, I have no doubts this reel will last a lifetime and handle the hardest hitting fish in our waters, as its predecessor has done so well for me and countless other anglers.

Bravo Ross Reels
