New Design for 2007
The Flywater is a hybrid large arbor fly reel that is beautifully crafted with cosmetic innovation and precision workmanship. The open back frame design and extensive spool ventilation is attractive and lightweight, but the series is built strong to support a lifetime of flawless performance.
The drag system is strong, sensitive and dependable; The Flywater drag system is identical to the system that was used in Ross' award winning Gunnison USA series. This is pretty impressive considering that the Gunnison sold for more than twice the price of the Flywater series, and during it's twenty plus years on the market, the Gunnison was awarded more industry awards than any other fly reel in the world.
It is the perfect reel for those anglers who are equally concerned about impeccable performance, gear aesthetics and rugged durability.
