The F1 is a high-end reel for line weights 2 to 9. It’s got a totally sealed drag system, a machined reel foot, a whole bunch of carbon fiber and some really cool design elements that we’re barely smart enough to understand. It looks great, and we can’t wait to take one out on the water – this winter on South Andros, perhaps. These reels aren’t cheap – $425 – $525.
We were interested enough in the F1 that we asked Brad Befus from Ross to give us a walk-through of the reel on video. Besides being one of the authors of Carp on the Fly, Brad is the sales manager for Ross. Sit back, relax and have a listen to Brad telling you everything you want to know about the F1.
