With today’s modern fishing the line is not always merely cast out – in many cases it’s slung away to the target. With this thinking in mind we developed a rod series that lives up to the name “Slingshot”. With a deep action that becomes better and better the more the rod is loaded and a tip fast and powerful enough to handle even the heaviest sinking lines, this rod is a pleasure to fish with! The Slingshot series’ unique action makes it equally suitable for all levels of expertise. The Slingshot was developed by our tournament casters and professional instructors Trond and Knut Syrstad.
*These rods are new but have been light use as demo rods to show customers.
The LOOP Opti Stream is THE 5wt. Make a few casts with it and you'll already want it as your go-to. We've completely fallen in love with this rod. The Opti Stream overshadowed many in Yellowstone Angler's 5wt shootout taking the #2 spot – beating out other popular rods like the Sage One, Scott G2, Orvis Helios 2, Winston Boron III, to name a few. Doesn't hurt that it's a couple hundred dollars cheaper than said rods too.
These rods have the flexibility to cope with all casting elements. Even using an underhand-cast, you can place the line where you want it without any delay. The Opti Stream handles the situation when you need an accurate presentation. There simply isn't a better 5wt.
