Gear Review: Ross Vexsis Fly Reels

March 3, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

MidCurrent reviewer Robert Morselli looks at a new Ross reel that caught our eye at last fall’s Fly Fishing Retailer Show. The Vexsis reel attempts to combine some innovative new features into a lightweight, modern design. Does it succeed? Yes, Morselli says, with one caveat.
Excerpt: “If you’re thinking ‘ideal mid-priced bonefish reel,’ you wouldn’t be wrong. In this price range, the last reel I tested that offered this level of tow-truck-stopping power as well as smoothness was the Gunnison.”
