Loop CROSS SX Fly Rod

Loop

Delivery 5-7 working days

Anglers requested a slightly faster action rod for certain fishing conditions and LOOP listened. The brand new next generation series of Cross SX fly rods has been carefully designed and tested over a two year period to provide modern fly fishers with a proven combination of proprietary nano-resin and high tensile carbon called Cross Core Technology System. This construction has enabled us to fine tune the extensive benefits of this material combination creating a fusion of strength, power and pinpoint accuracy. Our world renowned designers and team members tested and re-tested each model around the globe against multiple species, in a wide range of climates and fishing conditions before submitting the rods for final evaluation. Our ultimate criteria became fulfilling the requests by some of the world’s best anglers while maintaining the distinctive LOOP action. 

- Blank in aesthetic matte smoke finish. 
- High-grade cork handle with Cork mix reinforcements  
- Triangular 3-pin aluminum reel seat in Gun Metal finish 
- Titanium stripper guides 
- Black Nickel snake- and tip guides 
- Rod model inscription and dot mark on ferrules for correct fit 
- Delivered in matching aluminum tube and cloth bag

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, Exper

Peak rotary vise

Great Vise! Fast delivery! You guys rule!

I took this fishing rod (9' #10)for a two week trip to the Kola Peninsula in the hunt for salmon. She gave me the fight of my life! Rod minimizes the attempts of the salmon to escape, but I still lost her. Great fishing rod!!!

Awesome choice for bonefish

I used this reel for bonefish and it worked great. It is super light and easy to use on the flats.

Love it!

This is an absolutely awesome fly reel! It's build like a tank and will last several lifetimes. It looks stunning on bamboo rods, but while a bit heavier than the modern aluminum counterparts, it balances nicely during casting. The line included with the reel is a high quality Scientific Anglers Mastery line in the weight of your choice. If you've got a few extra bucks to invest in a fine reel, this is the one!

Pretty much bullet proof

I have owned my 811 for about 4 years now and have put it through the mill. I am not the most graceful of people, I have dropped it on several occasions, smacked it up against rocks, even dropped my rod in the river as it rolled down the current and ended on the bottom of a deep pool. We fished it out and it wasn't even dented! Love this reel!
