After many years of constantly challenging ourselves as a company to extend the boundaries of modern fly rod design, we take great pride in creating what we truly believe to be highest performance fly rod range we have ever made – the LOOP 7X
Our 7X rod series introduces the innovative design and performance advantages of an exclusive and pioneering heptagonal (7-sided) blank construction process. This patented technology optimises power transfer and enhances rod tracking for both accuracy and maximum energy efficiency.
The 7X’s superior casting performance is due to the geometric advantages inherent within its shape, resulting in accelerated and rapid dampening of the rod during the energy transitions of a casting cycle.
The 7X design, with its 2-3-2 structural support, eliminates “spine effect” and broadens the versatility beyond the conventional overhand cast and underhand casting techniques. The rod also provides equal precision and power in a multitude of casting actions, including the sidearm or backhand casting, which are often required in many demanding sport fisheries.
Finally, the 7X is both lighter and stronger than all circular fly rod constructions, and the ultra efficient energy transmission results in the enhancement of:
This truly is the most technologically advanced, high performance fly rod in the world.
