Ross San Miguel

Ross San Miguel

The classic San Miguel is instantly recognizable because of its high-gloss black finish on a solid frame, and the “flower petal” porting on the spool. This is the reel that built the Ross brand more than 20 years ago.

The new San Miguel has the same design aesthetics, but the updated version returning to store shelves in December of 2019 has a smooth, wide-range sealed drag system constructed of stacked disks of carbon fiber and stainless steel.

The new version also has an updated canvas Micarta handle, a material used in knives to improve grip when wet. We’ve used the same type of handle on larger Ross saltwater reels, and the material provides more traction—especially when wet—than machined aluminum or plastic handles.

The large-arbor spool has a stainless steel push-button release and is available in three sizes: 3/4, 4/5, and 5/6. $595 | Rossreels.com
