Re: Thoughts on Ross Evolution LT vs CLA
I own and fish the following: Evo LT 1.5, CLA 1.5, CLA 4, Ross Rhythm 3. All have more than adequate drag to handle anything that I have fished for (including Steelhead). Finish is impeccable on all the reels & backing capacity is dead on accurate. Only difference I noticed was in the weights and appearances. I believe the drag designs may be slightly different but to a user that is not apparent.
I suggest getting a CLA or an older Rhythm, save some bucks and use them towards other tackle.
