High Country Outfitters is pleased to announce a new addition to our brand range, with the introduction of the LOOP product range. LOOP have long been a name synonymous with prestige reels in Europe for many years and have also a large following with their fly rod range.

Fly Rods.

LOOP CROSS S1

rrp $999.Loop Tackle_cross_s1_Fly Rod_690_01

Over a period of two years we have developed these fly rods where we used new nano-particle composites. The result is amazing, the strength associated with the new composites generates a lightness and controllable elasticity that just must be experienced.
We have carefully restricted the inherent elasticity of the LOOP Cross S1 so that the rod is working evenly over a much wider range than other fly rods. We have managed to make super-strong featherweight fly rods, with an emphasis on fishing where the rod is working with minimum vibration through an entire load range – from close-in and out to even extreme distances. The design requires minimal input power where the rod does the job. It has never been so easy and taken so little effort to deliver precision loops at 10-metres or 30-metres while easily controlling the line or changing the pace of the cast.
