  • Ross-Colorado LT

    Simplicity at its finest: when you are able to focus on everything except your equipment. The water moving around the rocks and in the riffles. The fish rising in front of you. The cast. The fly. That glorious take. This is what inspired us while designing the newest (and lightest)  member of the Ross Reels family, the Colorado LT.

    Harkening back to the Colorado™, our original click and pawl reel, the new Colorado LT retains the same ruggedness and the signature all-metal clicker of its older brother. However, that is where the similarities end as the Colorado LT is built with a new aesthetic and modern design evident in its large arbor and highly detailed porting.

    Although it is the lightest reel in its class, you will not find any plastic here. A super-strong, fully machined aluminum frame and spool are paired with a handle machined from canvas phenolic rod - an industry first. This innovative material is found in the handles of high-end custom knives and also has the very useful property of increasing grip when wet.

    Adding to its elegant simplicity, the Colorado LT boasts only 15 total parts, all designed, machined, and assembled in Montrose, Colorado USA. This heritage is reflected in the Colorado flag milled into the frame and the mountain silhouette found on the anodized aluminum clicker cover.
