Surfing on Loops new webpage introduced me to some new graphite in the Loop line up the Goran Andersson Signature series in 9126-4 and a 10146-4....Great looking rods and am sure a pleasure to cast....Anyone have the chance to take either out for a test drive as yet???? Or soon too? Also noticed a mid belly line the "D" loop new in the line section head lengths of 62-66 ft....Off topic why is it Loop is relagated themselves to 8 weight and up for rods????

Juggy,

I cast a proto of the D-Loop lines last fall. The Andersson rods and the finished D-Loops are inbound to Fly Angler Distributing, LOOP's North American distributor and once they arrive and I have a chance to spend some time with them I'll post some notes as I did last year with the Quattros.

Loop's website

What is the address to Loop's new website? The only address I know is the old loopusa.com

Thanks,
David Dornblaser

P.S. - just did a little more surfing, would it be: http://www.looptackle.se ? Is there a new USA site?

The 12'6" Goran Andersson rod looks interesting.

Anyone got any leverage?

Hey guys, Dana-

I am just wondering if anyone has any leverage over there, because for the life of me I can't figure out why Loop isn't making any longer lightline doubles.

I have the CND 13' 6/7 Expert and I have found a zillion uses for it on a trout stream. I really want a top end, good looking, fast action but true 5/6 to throw a Windcutter 5/6 line, but I don't want to get an 11' or even a 12' rod. Those just don't offer enough of an advantage over the single hander to me.

Sage has the 12' 5 wt. CND has its 13' Expert. Could anyone convince Loop to make a 12'6" or 13' Gray Line #5? I have been trying to avoid going the custom route because I think the manufacturers are eventually going to come my way on this.

(In fact, I think double handers may start to grow even longer. Has anyone experimented with, say, an 18 or 20' *graphite* #10/11? If they did it with greenheart, why the limit at 15/16' now?)

I know I am crazy and I know I am way out here in the spey hinterlands, with no one influencing me or telling me why it can't be done, so maybe I try things no one in their right minds would try up north, but I think a long rod should be a long rod.
