I bought this fly reel for two reasons: I needed a fly reel for my saltwater fishing (mainly bonefish) and my freshwater fishing (mainly steelhead). It's the perfect fly reel for both my single hand #8 and my two handed #7. It's not only very functional as a fly reel should be, it's also drob dead cool looking. All my buddies wanted to check it out and now they want one, too.

I was looking for a new reel to bridge the gap between my heavier single hand fly rods (for bonefish and striper) and my two handed rods (steelhead). Looked at many brands and then rand into the Loop Opti. Not sure what the name Speedrunner means, but this is one cool fly reel. It's a super large arbor for amazing line retrieve speed...Loop even places the handle deeper into the spool's center for faster revolutions. It's just very well thought out and the drag is fully-sealed and super smooth. Finally, everywhere I take my reel I always get comments on it. People seem to dig it. I sure do.
