After more than two years of development and testing, and two more in the hands of the fishing public, the Ross™ F1™ has revolutionized modern fly reel design.

The Ross™ F1™ is the perfect example of the cutting-edge technology that goes into the development of products at Ross’ state-of-the-art Montrose, Colorado facility. The carbon fiber, infinitely-adjustable drag system is one of a kind, utilizing eight independent points of contact for engagement, yielding a smooth, dependable drag ready for any challenge. Ten separate O-rings completely seal the system, making it impervious to the elements, regardless of where you fish. The use of carbon fiber is not limited to the drag surface itself, but is integral in the spindle, handle, and spool release. This creates both strength and a reduction in weight with a modern look that sets the Ross™ F1™ apart from any other fly reel on the market.

The Ross™ F1™ employs a Ross original clutch bearing that is fully sealed and enables easy retrieve conversion without removing the bearing- an industry first. The extensive use of carbon fiber in the drag system, spool stabilizer, handle and spool release produce system strength and rigidity, while at the same time reducing overall weight. Ten separate o-rings completely seal the system, making it totally impervious to the elements. The constant-torque drag knob employs a 56:1 mechanical advantage; resulting in uniform drag knob rotation and infinite drag adjustment.
