After many years of constantly challenging ourselves as a company to extend the boundaries of modern fly rod design, we take great pride in the launch of what we truly believe to be highest performance fly rod range we have ever made: The Loop 7X Double Hand Rod Medium Fast Action Fly Rod.

Our 7X rod series introduces the innovative design and performance advantages of the exclusive and pioneering 7X 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 over hand cast and underhand casting techniques. The 7X Series provides equal precision and power in a multitude of casting actions including the sidearm or backhand cast which are often required in many demanding sport fisheries.

The 7X Series is both lighter and stronger than conventional circular fly rod construction and the ultra efficient energy transmission results in the enhancement of:

•accuracy
•presentation
•performance
•versatility

Loop has a proud history of fly fishing tackle innovation and invite anglers to explore our latest fly rod technology. 

 

ROD TEMPO ACTION:

Each LOOP fly rod has a specific rod tempo classification to denote the flex curve/action of the blank during the casting stroke. The particular classification (Medium, Medium/Fast and Fast) informs our customers where power is supplied as biomechanical input from the hand/hands relates to energy transfer output through the rod and in to the fly line. In simplified terms, the Medium, Medium/Fast and Fast tempo designations indicate the blank’s curve structure and flexibility during the casting cycle.

 

M – MEDIUM TEMPO ACTION:

Our medium tempo rods have a full flex action designed for slow, stealthy and deliberate presentations with long, delicate leaders and small flies. This slower tempo is also most amenable to freshwater environments and requires long, deep power application through the blank to optimise this particular rod action. This action is ideal for short to medium casting scenarios and offers a high degree of sensory feedback from the blank both during the casting cycle and when playing fish.

 Casting Ability Level: Novice, Intermediate, Good, Expert 

 

M/F – MEDIUM/FAST TEMPO ACTION:

This classic LOOP rod action offers the fly fisher more structure and backbone in the lower sections of the rod. This allows a broad range of angling application due to the perfect balance of casting performance and fish fighting ability. When longer casts are required, the angler can call upon more power reserve in the rod’s blank compared to the medium action tempo, resulting in greater water coverage for minimal biomechanical output effort.

 Casting Ability Level: Novice, Intermediate, Good, Expert 

 

F – FAST TEMPO ACTION:

Our fast tempo rods are designed for more direct-to-target power application with minimal blank deflection when the rod is brought to a stop on the forward delivery. This transfers forward energy through the rod in to tight, aerodynamic loops and even in challenging wind conditions, longer casting distances can be achieved with ease.  With less flex in the blank compared to the Medium and Medium/Fast tempos, this action does however, require more finely tuned and accurate timing than the slower flex tempos to maximise performance of this classification of flex pattern.

 Casting Ability Level: Intermediate, Good, Expert

Great product

Peak is the best for fly tying

No other reel can compare

This is a high quality reel that is American made and engineered in Virginia. It has an exclusive lever drag that helps you to precisely apply the exact amount pressure during the fight. Truly a game changer!

i ordered a set of 4 nippas for $9.99. I received 1 pair. Your website clearly showed 4 nippas of assorted color. Please respond

Hello Dennis, Our apologies for the confusion. The picture was showing the different types of Nippas that are available. It should be Assorted, 1 pair for the option you selected. We will get this rectified.
Loop 7X 10’ 3wt.

Very impressed with the rod! Can do everything from Euro Nymphing, to throwing Dry dropper rigs with touch and accuracy. Loving the rod, possibly my new favorite.
