  • Fishing in the salt is a grueling endeavor. The conditions are tough, and the fish can be even tougher; so Ross 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.

    All of this comes together to create a fishing tool with a power-to-weight ratio never before seen in a saltwater fly reel, making the R Salt the most unique, best performing reel per dollar of any on the water today.
