Free about fifty with no trouble (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

release

'free' is the definition.
(synonyms)

'about fifty with no trouble' is the wordplay.
'about' becomes 're' (common abbreviation for 'with reference to').
'fifty' becomes 'l' (roman numeral).
'with' says to put letters next to each other.
'no trouble' becomes 'ease' (I've seen this before).
're'+'l'+'ease'='RELEASE'

(Other definitions for release that I've seen before include "put out" , "Free from confinement" , "record" , "Set free - publish" , "Free - delivery" .)
