Product Description

Ross F1 Fly Reels are a large arbor series that is destined to revolutionize modern fly reel design. The F1 is a complete departure from conventional thinking and incorporates the most innovative features found in any fly reel. Inspired by Formula 1 race car brake systems, the F1 is an integration of carbon fiber and stainless steel; utilizing eight independent contact points to produce the smoothest and most dependable drag system on the market today. Two square inches of carbon fiber drag surface results in unsurpassed stopping power and heat dissipation. The spool fits on a carbon fiber stabilizer with two fully sealed stainless steel ball bearings that provide precision fit and smooth rotation.

The F1 employs a Ross original clutch bearing that is fully sealed and enables 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 drag-changing effects of water. The F1 employs a constant-torque drag knob with a 56:1 mechanical advantage; resulting in uniform drag knob rotation and infinite drag adjustment.

Additional features of the Ross F1 Fly Reels include:

  • 6061-T6 proprietary aluminum alloy frame and spool
  • Carbon fiber and stainless steel drag system (8-point friction system with reversible clutch bearing engagement)
  • Fully ventilated, balanced spool and frame
  • Perfect ratio of spool width to arbor diameter
  • Stainless steel spindle rotating inside of fully sealed, stainless steel ball bearings
  • Carbon fiber quick release locking spool
  • Carbon fiber handle
  • Easy retreive direction conversion
  • Seamless transition between line-in and drag engagement (no start-up friction)
