By combining our new Q rods and Q reels into a range of three single-handed and two double-handed fly fishing kits, the modern fly fisher is presented with an optimised and balanced ready-to-cast fly fishing solution. From searching for wild brown trout on tiny surface dries to casting monster flies for apex predators, the Q kit range offers five user-friendly outfits at a highly attractive price point.

 

The complete Q kit features a fly rod and preloaded fly reel with backing and a tapered leader attached for instant use straight out the rod tube. Each line rating benefits from a specific Q fly line taper to enhance the performance of the particular kit. The outfit is presented in a robust cordura combined rod and reel tube for secure transporta- tion during travel to your destination.

Q SERIES ROD SPECIFICATIONS

 

9’0″ #5 MEDIUM FAST

This is the trout angler’s go to fly rod for a range of fly fishing techniques using dry flies, nymphs and streamers. The rod excels at all forms of modern single-handed fly casting and offers full contact with the fly line at every point through the casting cycle to present flies with ease.

 

9’0″ #6 MEDIUM FAST +

This general purpose fly rod is well within its comfort zone fishing both floating and intermediate fly fishing techniques with woolly buggers, zonkers and streamers. The blank offers more structured backbone than lighter models and has ample energy reserve when throwing larger flies in challenging wind conditions.

 

9’0″ #7 MEDIUM FAST/FAST

Similar in flex pattern as the #6 version, this rod is designed for lightweight single-handed salmon fishing techniques and also for fishing cold-water coastal waters. The rod’s action performs seamlessly as a fast mid-curve flex pattern and allows full contact and total sensory feedback during casting power application.

 

13’2″ #8 MEDIUM FAST +

Designed for all forms of modern double-handed fly casting techniques, this rod performs well above its price class for overhead and speycasting disciplines in pursuit of migratory fish. Ideally suited for mid-sized river environments, the rod blank is optimised for a cross section of fly line profiles including shooting heads, skagit systems and long headed spey lines.

 

15′ #10 MEDIUM FAST +

When long distance water coverage is required on medium to large sized rivers, this Q rod is totally fit for purpose. Developed to cast all forms of modern two-handed line profiles, this rod offers consistent fly presentation cast after cast. The blank design allows all fly fishers the opportunity to optimise their water coverage by effectively transferring casting energy from the angler through the fly rod and into the fly line.

ROD TEMPO ACTION

ROD TEMPO ACTION:

Each LOOP fly rod has a specific rod tempo classification to denote the flex curve/action of the blank during the casting stroke. The particular classification (Medium, Medium/Fast and Fast) informs our customers where power is supplied as biomechanical input from the hand/hands relates to energy transfer output through the rod and in to the fly line. In simplified terms, the Medium, Medium/Fast and Fast tempo designations indicate the blank’s curve structure and flexibility during the casting cycle.

 

M – MEDIUM TEMPO ACTION:

Our medium tempo rods have a full flex action designed for slow, stealthy and deliberate presentations with long, delicate leaders and small flies. This slower tempo is also most amenable to freshwater environments and requires long, deep power application through the blank to optimise this particular rod action. This action is ideal for short to medium casting scenarios and offers a high degree of sensory feedback from the blank both during the casting cycle and when playing fish.

 

Casting Ability Level: Novice, Intermediate, Good, Expert 

 

M/F – MEDIUM/FAST TEMPO ACTION:

This classic LOOP rod action offers the fly fisher more structure and backbone in the lower sections of the rod. This allows a broad range of angling application due to the perfect balance of casting performance and fish fighting ability. When longer casts are required, the angler can call upon more power reserve in the rod’s blank compared to the medium action tempo, resulting in greater water coverage for minimal biomechanical output effort.

 

Casting Ability Level: Novice, Intermediate, Good, Expert 

 

F – FAST TEMPO ACTION:

Our fast tempo rods are designed for more direct-to-target power application with minimal blank deflection when the rod is brought to a stop on the forward delivery. This transfers forward energy through the rod in to tight, aerodynamic loops and even in challenging wind conditions, longer casting distances can be achieved with ease.  With less flex in the blank compared to the Medium and Medium/Fast tempos, this action does however, require more finely tuned and accurate timing than the slower flex tempos to maximise performance of this classification of flex pattern.
