AVID ANGLER PRO NOTES:


This is our favorite saltwater reel without question!  We have extensively put this reel through a multitude of harsh conditions and it has always come through with no issues.  Christmas Island bonefish, Abaco bonefish, Louisiana redfish and more have proven to be no match for this elegant and dynamic reel.


The award-winning Evolution R Salt is a breakthrough product, designed with a power-to-weight ratio never before seen in a saltwater fly reel. This makes the R Salt the most unique, best performing reel per dollar on the water today, all in a stunning package.

Fishing in the salt is a grueling endeavor. The conditions are tough, and the fish can be even tougher; so we developed the Evolution R Salt to stand up to anything the sea can throw at it.

The R Salt builds on the foundation of its smaller sibling, but instead of the Evolution R’s 7-disc system, it features a supercharged 16-disc sealed drag system comprised of stainless steel and carbon fluoropolymer, producing nearly 30 pounds of drag pressure. Also an industry first, the R Salt features two smaller counterbalances on the spool - this innovative design reduces mass and creates perfect, vibration-free performance when line is being ripped off the spool on long runs.

This exceptional braking power is housed in a lightweight, yet incredibly strong frame and spool that is based on the Evolution R’s unique design. The large, frame-integrated drag knob allows for easy on-the-fly adjustments with just the palm of your hand during long fights with oversized quarry. The R Salt's geometry is reinforced throughout, yielding an incredibly rugged, yet elegant reel that performs in the most challenging of environments.

All of this comes together to create a fishing tool with a power-to-weight ratio never before seen in a saltwater fly reel, making the R Salt the most unique, best performing reel per dollar of any on the water today.
