New For 2007

The Momentum series has been in development for more than two years. Our primary focus has been the incorporation of carbon fiber into the drag system so the entire reel could benefit from the desirable properties of this incredible material. Stiffness, strength, heat resistance, shock-damping capabilities and infinite fatigue resistance are all properties of carbon fiber that will help make the Momentum drag system the strongest and most dependable big game reel on the market today. The question remained - where do we begin? The answer was obvious - Kestrel USA - The First Name in Carbon Fiber!

Momentum Fly Reels by Ross Reels USA and Kestrel USA

Kestrel USA bike company was a perfect choice for us when choosing a carbon savvy company as an engineering partner for the development of the Momentum's carbon fiber drag system. Kestrel's corporate philosophies embody the same values and principals that we have promoted at Ross for over 30 years. Our vast experience in fly reel design and manufacturing is equally matched by Kestrel's expertise in design and production of carbon fiber components. Kestrel has been manufacturing the world's finest carbon fiber bikes since 1987. In fact, Kestrel designed and produced the very first all-carbon bike frame. They are pioneers in the carbon fiber industry and we were thrilled that a company of their caliber agreed to join us in the development of this new drag technology. When it comes to engineering, development and production of carbon fiber products, Kestrel has written the book and their expertise with carbon fiber is simply unmatched.

Welcome to the next generation of Ross products! The Momentum series represents a cosmic departure from current Ross designs in both function and style. The carbon fiber we have employed for the Momentum drag system is incredibly strong! The measurement of the strength for this material is "ksi", which denotes tensile strength in thousands of pounds per square inch. So just how strong is our carbon fiber drag system? To get a good perspective on this, the aluminum used to produce Ross products is 45ksi; meaning it can resist a tension load of 45,000 pounds per square inch of material. This is pretty impressive until you realize that the carbon fiber used in the Momentum drag system is 700ksi vastly stronger than aluminum, steel and even titanium!

The first time you handle a Momentum reel, you will be amazed with its meticulous machining and ergonomic design. We have custom fit this series with a large but unobtrusive drag knob - easily found for adjustment during the heat of battle, but never in the way. Additionally, the Momentum handle has been designed to fit comfortably between your fingers, but will never slip free when taking on a monster fish. Each reel in this series is designed with a specific diameter and width to maximize the properties of drag consistency and line retrieval. With 6.3 square inches of effective drag surface, and 12 pounds of dead lift weight, the Momentum series has three times the effective stopping power of every drag tested. Put simply, the Momentum is the strongest fly fishing reel on the market today; and it costs considerably less than many competitive brands. A triple-redundancy drag system ensures dependability under the most demanding fishing conditions, and by adding in features like a titanium drag components, a quick-release locking spool and water shedding grooves on the palming rim, you have the ultimate big game fly fishing reel. With a wide range of sizes available, the Momentum series is appropriate for any fishing application, including Spey.
