Ross Flystart - Reels | Large

Description of the Ross Flystart - Reels:

The Flystart is a large arbor fly reel that is affordably priced, yet built with the same commitment to quality and performance as all Ross reels. The gear-to-gear drag is a low maintenance, high performance system that is dependable, smooth and has a wide range of adjustment. And don't be fooled by the price. This reel is everything a budget-minded angler needs to land the fish of a lifetime. The Flystart series is coated with our proprietary AGP finish. This coating is incredibly strong and substantially more durable than any finish applied to competitive reels. The Flystart is a great reel for the first-time fly fishing participant that demands quality, but does not want to spend a fortune gearing up to fish.

Features :

  • Manufactured out of 6061 - T6 aircraft quality aluminum
  • Self-lubricating, synthetic drag system that is virtually maintenance free
  • Electrostatically coated for the perfect balance of hardness and color
  • Seamless transition between line-in and drag engagement (no start-up friction)
  • Quick release locking spool
  • Easy left-hand to right-hand retrieve conversion
  • Exposed spool rim for palming
  • Backed by Ross Lifetime Warranty

Ross FlyStart Reel
Rating: 5 of 5 [5 of 5]
Reviewed by: turtlephish on 04/07/2011
Experience Level: Amatuer - Ownership: 1 - 4 Months
Pros: The Ross Flystart reel is an excellent reel for the price. My brother and I recently went fishing on the Hood and Sandy Rivers in Oregon and the reel performed flawlessly. I went with a second spool that was set up with a sinking line for the Steelhead and swapping the spools out was effortless. all in all an extremely great product and a price point to match
Cons: Nothing comes to mind as a con to this product. I would definitely purchase and utilize other Ross Reels in the future based upon this initial purchase.
