Ross Reels

Animas – A Hand-Crafted Workhorse

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 single-piece spool is elegantly ported for both aesthetics and weight savings. And in a first for Ross, the handle of the Animas is fully-anodized machined aluminum with a reverse taper for increased control and excellent grip. The hours of engineering and design time taken to deliver the Animas ensures the highest level of quality, something expected from every product wearing the Ross Reels logo. The Animas is sure to be the go-to favorite of every angler to pair with their favorite rod.

Cimarron II – Proudly Made In The USA

We are proud to introduce the new Cimarron II. A bold, new, Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired porting design yields a lightweight reel while maintaining both strength and rigidity. The frame and the spool are each machined from a solid piece of 6061 aerospace grade aluminum alloy and are Type II anodized for a hard, durable finish.

Ross Reels’ proven Delrin® 500AF, Teflon-impregnated drag system has been upgraded with new composite materials and stainless steel components, resulting in over twice the drag strength of its processor, the CLA. The new stainless steel thrust washer gives the Cimarron II the ability to withstand years of abuse while retaining a silky smooth start-up inertia that protects light tippets.

Central to the Cimarron II is an all new ruggedly designed, square-shaped drag knob that provides a strong, positive grip in all types of fishing conditions. It is constructed from a precision molded, high-performance polymer designed to withstand years of abuse.

The all new machined Derlin® composite handle has an engineered hourglass shape for improved grip and control. The micro-grooved finish provides a tacky surface even in the wettest conditions.

The new spool hub and quick-release housing are now made of fully machined aluminum that is hard anodized for increased durability and ease in exchanging spools.
