Ross Canyon 3 weight Reel NIB

10 posts in this topic

The Colorado was a fully machined reel made from bar stock aluminum. Durability is consistent with quality machining; although character marks will appear should you decide to drop it on streamside rocks or asphalt.

 

The click style drag was based on one of two sizes of flat metal spring; one light and one heavy (both included with the reel). All that is required to change the springs is a small phillips head screwdriver.

 

It comes in a small, cloth carry bag and is a relatively nonreflective "gun metal" gray. The spool is removed with the press of a lever and is exposed for palming; the latter being the true "drag system" as the spring only really provides enough resistance to keep the line from backspooling. The reel can be set up for right or left hand retrieve by loosing the single screw which holds the drag spring and setting the clicker peg in the appropriate one of two holes depending on your preference.

 

Reel is NIB with 3 wt floating line ( name escapes me) but it was around $ 40 and has 200 yds of braid backing.

 

$ 75.00 shipped.
