Hello, anyone fish a Loop Cross SX fly rod in 5, 6 or 7 weight. They are selling at half price and reviews suggest that they are a goodly rod. Any views and opinions out there about these rods? Thanks in advance.

Hi SH,

You see them using the Loop Cross a lot in New Zealand on the trout hunter videos. They seem to have plenty of backbone in the lower sections but a sensitive tip.

Where have you seen them at half price out of interest?

It seems to be the S1 that is more widely used in NZ YouTube content.

Thanks for the response above. I will be using the rod for still water trout (I may encounter a fish in the region 6 to 10lbs). Its the discount that catches the eye (but that is possibly a manipulative intent) but also the rods just look superb.

Have a 10' #6 , bought early spring.
Like it a lot, well built pretty fast action.
Depending on your casting abilities I would probably use a #7 weight forward.
Quality cork and tube.
Worth the money in my opinion.

Extra discounts this weekend Sodahead.

I just bought a Loop Q kit, as a budget saltwater outfit, for £236.00 - rod, reel, line and leader. Would have been rude not to buy it.
