Was there not a heavier rod too :?
Seem to recall there being an 8 (or something like it) at 'loops Scottish 2012 gathering.
Maybe I'm imagining things.

Hi to everyone, first post here.
So, I measured a Sexyloops Pro 6wt, the ERN is 7.9 and AA is 72.
There is an 8wt prototype you have seen but Alejandro is working on another. We should have it in a couple of weeks.

Cheers,

Ákos

Hi Ákos ..... welcome to the forum :z16

Thanks for posting the details, I still haven't been out with my rod yet, the weather here is a pain!

Best wishes
Mike

Sounds like an excuse is being built for a road trip for rod testing/product development Mr B :z17  :z13

My PB distance with a #5 and #7 has been steadily improving with the GT125 line :z16

I was out for a few casts with Ben today and finally got a chance to play with the new Sexyloops rod. Great fun, I like the Competitor rod very much and I even managed to add a few more inches to my PB #5 at 103 ft and 6 inches :cool:

Top casting today Mike, looking very tidy  :z16

The rod is nice, I like it a lot although it took me a little time to tune to it as I've been casting 5wt lines on 10 rated rods recently  :z4

If I was looking for a 9' #5/6 rated rod in that price bracket, I would buy one without any hesitation.


Cheers

Ben
