Ross Colorado Reel
The Colorado LT set the bar for lightweight click pawl reels. The new Colorado takes it to the next level.
This thoroughly updated design brings a beautiful aesthetic defined by aerodynamic shapes and surfaces. The look of this reel is different from anything on the market today. A novel, all-metal external clicker accentuates the back of the reel, complete with a machined silhouette of our local San Juan Mountains and a classic click-pawl sound. The spool is even more open than its predecessor, making the face of the reel appear spacious and clean, with the beveled large arbor showing off the backing and line just as well as it picks it up.
The semi-caged frame adds unmatched strength and rigidity, but with only a minimal weight gain - just enough to balance out a wider range of lightweight rods. The industry-first bushing is fully machined from Vesconite - a material specifically designed to be used in the toughest marine bearing applications, guaranteeing a lifetime of flawless operation.
Classic sound and feel meets modern strength and design to make the Colorado a functional piece of art - both on and off the water. With every angle and material carefully analyzed and considered, the new Colorado is designed to be fished from small streams to big rivers and everything in between.
- New semi-caged frame provides unprecedented strength in a lightweight package
- Vesconite bushing for a uniquely smooth feel
- Unidirectional click-pawl drag
- Crisp, audible sound
- Canvas micarta handle enhances grip when wet
- Large arbor for fast retrieval and reduced line memory
- Available in sizes 2/3 and 4/5
Cleaning & Maintenance
The Animas series of reels are fully anodized, making them ideal for use in both freshwater and saltwater. We recommend that you clean your reel after each use, especially after exposure to a salt or alkali environment. When cleaning the reel, the drag must be fully disengaged with the drag knob rotated counterclockwise until the stopping position is reached. Use fresh water (distilled water is preferred) to flush salt and debris from the reel. For better cleaning results, separate the Spool (1) from the Frame (2), soak both in warm fresh water and then rinse in fresh running water. Let the Spool (1) and the Frame (6) completely dry by placing the drag knob up and spool face up before storing.
REMINDER!!! Do not lubricate this reel. Lubricants will degrade the drag system’s performance or make it inoperable. This reel uses a permanently self-lubricating bearing surface and therefore does not need additional lubrication
