Why are you adding nonsense commentary to my post Scierra ? …. How bizarre
Glyn,Don’t understand the negative posts on the 14’ Cross, it was a very nice rod indeed, cast floating and sinking lines with ease and casts were straight (well most times), rod also had a lovely feel, for me it was pushed into second place by the 12’, for me the best of that range.
now of course it has to be SL a bit biased of course but I’ve been using them exclusively for 6 years now and can’t see past them, they are a delight to fish with. It’s horses for courses though and it would be a boring world if we all liked the same things
Agreed mows, don't the lads at graham's of Inverness have the seatroot special and grilse special made of the whisker blank?, as for the spinning rods people are always after them season upon seasonDaiwa Whisker range.
Excellent troot rods.
Ok Double handers.
And still the most sought after spinning rods after 20 odd years of dominance.
Trout and spinning rods still go for more than they originally cost.
Glyn,I did have an early one as Did Bex on here no issues with them at all. Did Loop admit an issue? I,m surprised they put a rod out with a fault, how they didn’t notice an issue with a new range of rods amazes me
Michael I have been in manufacturing for over 40 years, I understand how it works. My point is and what I am asking is, did Loop agree that the rods were faulty because from all of the cross rods sold the only place I have heard that there was an issue was on here, I have never heard about this issue from any of the Loop team or any usersGlyn,
things can go wrong in production: all it takes is someone to make a mistake and put the wrong specification of pre-preg in the roll up, or put it in 90 degrees mis-orientated. Springer could give you a much more detailed answer.
After all, with one of their new models, a well known maker of 4x4 managed to send out an entire batch with the filter blocks in the exhaust system fitted back to front, which generated some interesting and expensive engine failures. Apparently the sub-component supplier had put the direction arrow on the blocks 180 degrees wrong.
I’ve got one and love it.I did have an early one as Did Bex on here no issues with them at all. Did Loop admit an issue? I,m surprised they put a rod out with a fault, how they didn’t notice an issue with a new range of rods amazes me
Looking forward to see how Frodins rods get onI really like Loop Cross 14, maybe mine is one of the redeemed ones. Or maybe it's me! I like Gaelforce Destination and LTS Explosive rods a lot too. Obviously all will be dumped immediately to make room for a full set of Frofin's new Salar2 rods, maybe with matching reels. I used Sage single handers for years and one Loomis GLXd and was happy until, maybe four years ago, I had play with a Scott Radian. Wonderful, as is it successor the Centric.
The 9ft 5/7 is a brilliant rod. Maybe slow compared to modern rods but puts out a nice line.This thread has made me dig out my late fathers rods. Daiwa Whiskers all. There’s a couple of 11’3” 7/8 he used for the sea trout and a 9’ and 9’6” 5/7. Sadly his spinning rod is a ‘glane’. Might take one of the rods out on Menteith at the weekend.
