The LOOP Opti River is a five piece 7-weight rod developed for salmon and steelhead fishing in flowing water. It's deep action makes it perfect for long underhand casts in tight spots. As for overhand casting, you'll be amazed by the power in this rod. Just watch the video in the tab below to see what we mean. The Opti River also comes with the patented X-Grip. A little gun-shy about a hexagonal grip? Don't be! We've absolutely fallen in love with the X-grip. Although a little unusual upon first grasp, you'll find it quite comfortable and the comfort lasts all day long. It leaves your hand/forearm much less fatigued and requires much less effort to maintain a secure grip. Made with Cross Weave technology it is as durable as it gets.
The Evotec series is built with our latest “Cross Weave” technology and has a wonderful, precise and balanced action. Our “Perfect Curve” philosophy has led us to a rod with minimum recovery vibration that allows the caster to vary tempo without problem. The formed handle is a blend of cork and epoxy that provides ultimate grip in all situations.
The LOOP Opti Peak is a unique stick. It's designed to cast a light line, yet handle big fish. If you are looking for a rod to cast bombers or big dry flies for salmon or large trout, the Opti Peak was built for you.
