The Evolution is certainly the "sexier" reel but it cost $100 more dollars. Will pair the reel with either a TFO Mangrove 6wt, TFO BVK 6wt, TFO MiniMag 200-300gr or Sage Approach 6wt (still need to test cast)
Right now it is all a wash to me. Any input, thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!
Back in the day when I used to work in the industry I thought about bringing in Ross CLAs as demo reels. They are built very solidly and have reliable drags. Also costs are very attractive. The #3 reel is just light enough to balance well with most single handed 6 weigh rods.
