Designed around our original Colorado’s click and pawl system, the new award-winning Colorado LT retains the same ruggedness and the signature all-metal clicker of its older brother. However, that is where the similarities end as the Colorado LT is built with a new aesthetic and modern design evident in its large arbor and highly detailed porting. Adding to its elegant simplicity, the Colorado LT boasts only 15 different parts in total, all designed, machined, and assembled in Montrose, Colorado USA.
Less is More.
Simplicity at its finest: when you are able to focus on everything except your equipment. The water moving around the rocks and in the riffles. The fish rising in front of you. The cast. The fly. That glorious take. This is what inspired us while designing the newest (and lightest) member of the Ross Reels family, the Colorado LT.
Harkening back to the Colorado™, our original click and pawl reel, the new Colorado LT retains the same ruggedness and the signature all-metal clicker of its older brother. However, that is where the similarities end as the Colorado LT is built with a new aesthetic and modern design evident in its large arbor and highly detailed porting.
Although it is the lightest reel in its class, you will not find any plastic here. A super-strong, fully machined aluminum frame and spool are paired with a handle machined from canvas phenolic rod - an industry first. This innovative material is found in the handles of high-end custom knives and also has the very useful property of increasing grip when wet.
Adding to its elegant simplicity, the Colorado LT boasts only 15 total parts, all designed, machined, and assembled in Montrose, Colorado USA. This heritage is reflected in the Colorado flag milled into the frame and the mountain silhouette found on the anodized aluminum clicker cover.
All of this thought and attention to detail was put into the Colorado LT so that you will have a simple, elegant reel to use on any fishing adventure. A reel that allows you to focus on your passion and your surroundings, wherever the river may take you.

The Colorado LT set the bar for lightweight click pawl reels. The new Colorado takes it to the next level.
This thoroughly updated design brings a beautiful aesthetic defined by aerodynamic shapes and surfaces. The look of this reel is different from anything on the market today. A novel, all-metal external clicker accentuates the back of the reel, complete with a machined silhouette of our local San Juan Mountains and a classic click-pawl sound. The spool is even more open than its predecessor, making the face of the reel appear spacious and clean, with the beveled large arbor showing off the backing and line just as well as it picks it up.
The semi-caged frame adds unmatched strength and rigidity, but with only a minimal weight gain - just enough to balance out a wider range of lightweight rods. The industry-first bushing is fully machined from Vesconite - a material specifically designed to be used in the toughest marine bearing applications, guaranteeing a lifetime of flawless operation.
Classic sound and feel meets modern strength and design to make the Colorado a functional piece of art - both on and off the water. With every angle and material carefully analyzed and considered, the new Colorado is designed to be fished from small streams to big rivers and everything in between.
New semi-caged frame provides unprecedented strength in a lightweight package
