  • Evolution LTX

    The Ross Reels Evolution series defined the modern trout reel. Now meet the Evolution LTX: the perfect combination of original Evolution LT feel and Evolution R performance.

    The ultra-smooth drag found in the Evolution LT has a long and revered history, but our engineering team took this design to the next level. The drag debuting with the LTX is over four times stronger than its predecessors’, while retaining the sound and feel that helped make the Evolution an icon.

    The large arbor spool includes an innovative line channel for cleanly hiding arbor knots when winding on backing.   The Ross Reels signature bell-shaped arbor design also adds strength, while helping to self-level the fly line across the face of the spool as it is retrieved.
     
    The LTX also incorporates a handle machined from canvas phenolic rod (another Ross Reels innovation), which reduces weight, adds durability, and increases grip when wet. These improvements make the LTX a true light saltwater contender, perfectly at home on the flats as it is on the shores of a western river.
     
    These meticulously designed features of the LTX converge in a light weight package, redefining the trout reel for another generation.

    Machined canvas phenolic handle reduces weight and adds grip

      Ross evolution LTX

      The reel arrived quickly and looked sensational. It was quickly paired with the Epic 686 I’d assembled. When winding the reel it made a noise, amplified by the rod. Swift service quickly assessed and corrected the (minor) noise and it is now a very elegant set up! Thanks for your help, and for such great quality, both gear and service!

      Ross Evolution LTX 5/6 Black

      This is the second Ross Evo LTX reel I have purchased from Swift in the past month. I bought the 4/5 for my small stream 4 wt rod and I was so impressed I also bought a 5/6 for my everyday 5 wt rod. As for Swift, they are a great company to deal with. Their on-line service is exemplary.

      Two Thumbs Up Ross Reels and Epic,

      It is my first Ross reel and everything I have read about the Evolution LTX is true. Superbly built reel, smooth powerful drag, aesthetically pleasing. Epic's customer service is first rate. As good as it gets.
