Ross has posted a brand new reel on their website- available for pre-order. The Colorado is a highly ported click drag reel, weighing 3.5oz in the larger 4/5 size. 2/3 size comes in at 3.2

Didn't or don't they have the Colorado already?
Colorado LT. This looks to be an update/replacement, though the site is unclear on that. It shows both designs. It will be nice to see some images of the new one loaded with backing and line- bet it comes alive with a bit of color.

Check our Ken Tanaka’s latest Wish4Fish video. He’s using the new model. On a new rod brand from Montana called NATIVE. He’s using a new size 4/5 Ross Colorado

Hmmm. A redesign of a redesign. I think the new one looks better than the LT/prior one (which I really don't care for -- I'm talking looks), but I'd rather spend an extra $60 and get an Abel TR. If I thought the TR was just too heavy for the intended rod, then I'd personally still go in another direction for a light reel. But to each his own. To me the best looking Colorado is the 0 from the original series.

Slightly different machining. Meh. Slightly heavier. Maybe not a bad thing. 40 bucks increase in price. Meh.
I'll stick with the 3 CO LTs I have.

Interesting. Not to get this thread off track, but I think anyone looking for a light, simple reel should check out the Danielsson Midge and Nymph, both part of their Original series. Not the most stylish, but well made and only $156 (as of today, Danielsson's USD prices understandably fluctuate a bit based on exchange rates).

I saw that also, I love my LT and I don't see a reason to change. I wonder why they redesigned? That new Hardy reel is pretty cool too but I really don't like the arrows machined in the spool.
