Default Roman Moser loops

Probably a stupid question but can anyone tell me what the difference is between Roman Moser loops and braided loops?

They are braided - but unlike a lot of the others it has a double wall of braid and is very small and neat - imo the best braided loops available.

Just put one on my DT 5 F yesterday - seem like good loops - time will tell. Easy to install though.

As far as I can tell then, the only difference is that when you insert your fly line it is gripped by two layers of braid rather than one?

I've been using the Roman Moser loop on a Di3 for a while now , if I remember right the idea is that the double wall makes it stiffer and helps turn over the flies, which I can't say I've noticed at all, the little sleeve on mine is red and I'm pretty sure I get line bites sometimes as fish have a nip at the sleeve, so all in all I'd say if you've got them use them but if your buying them for yourself your probably as well with cheaper lureflash ones.

Yes they have a double wall of braid but as stated they're small slim and neat and you're able to push the line right up to the beginning of the loop so they don't cause hinging.Never in all the yrs ive been using them have noticed any line bites,but i whip mine on rather than using the sleeve provided

Have you considered using a small loop of thick mono ( eg 10lb) instead. I think some people attach these with thread and a touch of glue ?

normal braided loops have double wall so far down from the loop about the same length as moser's, although i now use moser's for them that dont wish to pay the price for them ,just cut off the extra length of braid past the doubled wall section leaving around an eighth of an inch to start the feed of the fly line into the double walled section, once you have fed it upto the loop put a small drop of zap a gap at the point where the fly line ends, that serves two purposes ,1,it secures the line to the end of the braid,2, it seals the end of the fly line to stop ingress of water up the braided core,then put a tiny drop at the other end then whip the end onto the fly line or use the sleeve if you wish, if you whip it onto the line coat with a small amount of varnish or as i prefer to rub a very small amount of aquasure around the whipping which stays very flexible

zap a gap..its rubberised and waterproof ,not all superglues are ..

Arn't normal loops double walled only as far down as the loop and not the length that you pass the line up?.Anyway i don't like the thickness of the braid they're made from,Moser's are slimmer even with a double wall

Scrub that Bruce as just re read your post,moser's for me
