With the Z series, the Scandinavian premium manufacturer Loop presents the follow-up to the legendary Cross rods. The familiar classification of the rod models has been adopted, so that experienced Loop fans will quickly find their way around. Accordingly, the ZT series includes the Travel models, which are particularly suitable for transport due to their division and travel-friendly packing size. So the 6-piece Loop ZT two-handed is the perfect choice for all fly fishers who go abroad for salmon fishing by plane or for all those who appreciate a handy rod tube.
However, the similarities in the designation of the rod models are matched by many interesting innovations that distinguish all Z rods from Loop. First and foremost, it is the modern design of the Z fly rods from Loop that catches the eye. It starts with the high-quality aluminium reel seat, which features a striking Z, and ends with a beautiful blue finish on the part of the blank where all the information about the particular model can be found. The real highlights of the Z fly rods, however, are in the details. After almost two years of research, development and rigorous testing, the product developers at Loop can claim that they have found a harmonious combination of power and lightness that all fly fishers can benefit from. Thanks to the unique inclusion of graphene particles in the nano resin used, a balance has been achieved that allows both the powerful casting of heavy sinking lines and the fine presentation of small salmon flies on the floating line. A versatility that is very relevant in the field of salmon fishing and allows you to react with confidence to many different situations on the river with just one rod. The action of the lightweight rod blank varies between Medium Fast and Fast, depending on the model, and allows for very different casting styles. You can use these rods just as well with a long spey line as with a very compact shooting head. We like that a lot!
In short: The Loop ZT series is made from 40-45 ton nano-graphene carbon fibres of the highest specification available, providing one of the smoothest and most powerful actions of any travel rod we know. These rods also feature a Class AAA+ cork handle, a specially designed lightweight reel seat, ceramic-coated titanium stripping rings and titanium-coated stainless steel rings. A classy finish that will delight demanding two-handed casters and rounds off the attractive technical features of this modern Travel Series.
