Ross added 9, 10, 11, and 12-weight models to its RX series of flyrods this season. These are 4-piece, admirably appointed and engineered rods right around the $300 price point. For complete details, click here. Having not had the chance to cast one yet, I'll relate, below, what the company has to say about its premium rod lineup. Ross is likely best-known among Florida fly fishermen for its modest-priced, solid-performing reels.

Cast just one of these exciting new rods and you'll want to own it! This 4-piece rod series has a beautiful deep amber finish with nicely appointed silver accents. The reel seat is carbon fiber with anodized aluminum hardware, and the handle is hand-shaped premium cork. The proprietary Rx™ graphite design is a fast action taper that rivals the most expensive rods on the market today. These rods are lightweight, perfectly balanced, powerful and precise. The RX is one of those series that no matter what distance you cast, you will always feel perfectly connected with the rod, and it will never fall short on power. The RX series dispels the myth that all premium fly rods come with a premium price. This is an extraordinary fly rod series that won't leave you with sticker shock!
