Reduced $350 shipped, or would also consider trading for a Meiser in
the 3-6 range plus cash.

I have two of these rods only need one.

I live in Arkansas, I use this rod on the White River swinging for trout.

This rod is in excellent plus condition, shows no wear from use.

One of my favorites. It's also great with a 5/6 Aero Head. I find myself reaching for this one a lot.

Is my understanding that Loomis, unlike Sage, don't repair older rods like this one?

Correct, LowWaterDouble. I recently purchased this rod on eBay and it broke first cast; I sent it to G. Loomis for warranty and they gave me a new rod that's a fair substitute (upgrades are not available), which was an IMX PRO #6 for $120. Overall, I was very happy with G. Loomis, especially considering that I did not have the warranty card and was not the original buyer. Always wanted the Metolius Trout Spey 5/6 (in working condition), I had the 5/6 Aero Head on it.

G Loomis Streamdance Metolius 13'4" 5/6

FYI
I have two of these rods, the one I'm selling I've only used a few times.
Condition is as described.
The one I'm keeping, I have used a lot.
Never experienced any problems with the rod including breakage.
These are great rods, kept two because the're kind of hard to find.
Only now selling a few rods now to fund another project.
Hope that helps.
Thanks

Have you tried a Rio Short Head Spey 5/6 on it? I am looking for a good rod for that particular line.

Thanks,
Sean

Hi
Haven't tried that. Right now I'm using a Windcutter II 49' 5/6 365 gn,
a little light, I think something in 390 to the low 400's would be better.
Thanks
