ROSS REELS GUNNISON
The most reliable, best-selling fly reels were inspired by the Gunnison river, cutting through the Black Canyon on the Western Slope of Colorado. It's just 10 miles from the Ross Reels factory.
Keeping in line with the original aesthetics, the Ross Reels Gunnison Fly Reel 2018 is designed with octagonal machining, round porting, and a leader groove on the frame. However, that is where the similarities part ways. The new Gunnison represents the best in modern reel design while retaining all the reliability and ruggedness of the original.
The unique frame geometry and spool profile echo the original Gunnison while 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.
Ross overcame the formidable task of replacing what was the favorite and in many cases the first fly reel of so many anglers. These were huge shoes to fill, but the new Ross Reels Gunnison has risen to the occasion.
