NEW rods that feature state-of-the-art tech!

LOOP’s new and improved Z rods are the spiritual successor to the brands iconic Cross line, and are the result of several years of research, development, and rigorous testing, all with the purpose of providing the best combination of quality and value in a fly rod.

Each rod in the Z series is manufactured from 40-45 tonne nano graphene carbon fibre of the highest specification possible, ensuring the smoothest, most powerful action of any circular shaped rod we’ve ever come across thanks to the use of state-of-the-art nano resin technology.

Each rod in the series has a cork grip of the best quality, a specially designed lightweight reel seat, ceramic lined titanium stripping guides, and titanium plated stainless steel snake guides.

The single-handed ZX provides superior distance, control, and accuracy in a fast action, and is available in a variety of versions to suit any occasion or desire.

Recommended Applications

There are four rods in the range with each one designed for different applications. Here’s what LOOP recommend –

693 – A rod for pretty much all freshwater species or light saltwater sea trout. Will give you all the desired distance without the loss of any feeling.

6100 – Great rod for stillwater fishing, but also a really good option for smaller rivers holding grilse or sea trout.

790 – The perfect option for coastal sea trout or even light tropical saltwater. We look at it as a tool for streamers or other larger flies where line speed is a necessity.

8100 – The most powerful rod in the series, designed for those who chase salmon with a single-handed rod or frequently battle windy conditions.

The ZX series of rods are available for around £540
