LOOP Cross S1 5wt Custom build ...

Post by tony@hce » Thu Aug 21, 2014 11:08 pm

Just thought I would share some pics of a recently finished LOOP Cross S1 5wt. Great blanks, very light in the hand and a delight to cast. Looking forward to giving this one a good workout in the new river season :D

Hi Johnno, we (HCE) are an authorised LOOP rod building partner, we get the blanks direct from the LOOP distributor who is located in NZ.

Cheers,
Tony.

My apologies Tony :oops: Never the less, it is a gorgeous build. Still really like the finish/thread work.

Cheers,
JD

Check with local LOOP dealer(s) ... they should be able to get the blanks in for you.
