The Flystart is a hybrid large arbor fly reel that is inexpensive, yet built with the same commitment to quality and performance as all Ross reels. The drag system is designed to be smooth, consistent and have a wide range of adjustment. Fly fishing is a sport that everyone can enjoy, but for many people, the price of fly tackle is often a barrier to participation. The Ross team was committed to producing an introductory priced fly reel that would perform to the expectations of even the most experienced angler, and the Flystart series perfectly meets this goal. You will be amazed with its quality in manufacturing tolerance, drag performance and sound. The Flystart is a great reel for first-time fly fishing participants that demand quality, but do not want to spend a fortune gearing up to fish.
