Ross Saltwater V

Had big thoughts of using this reel on a 15' GL3 10-11wt. Sold the rod and really have no use for the reel any longer. This is a new in the box reel with all the paperwork. Has been loaded with backing, something like 400yds or so. Will handle any long belly Spey line and tackle tuna also. A highly praised reel. This model has the tarpons etched on the front and weighs 9.5 oz. I believe it cost about me $350 plus backing cost. Looking to get 280 outta of it. Just PM me if interested.

What reel is this ? The only "V" I know of is the Canyon, and
it doesn't handle 400 yds of backing. Is this an older series that
was discontinued a while back ?

To put you in the know.

Ross manufactured this reel up till about 2000. The specs are on the Ross Reels website under the Saltwater Series. They are highly prized for the fact that they take alot of backing and other than the clicker are bomb-proof. Super drag and good looks. Do a search on this forum and you'll see some of the comments.
