For over 30 years Loop Tackle of Sweden has designed some of the best fly tackle on the market. They ought to know how, as they were the first company to ever offer the market a true, large-arbor fly reel. This Loop Evotec is everything you want in a quality fly reel: fully-machined from solid, bar-stock aluminum, anodized, large-arbor and a fully-sealed disc drag system. This is the right reel for bigger trout, lighter steelhead and even smaller saltwater species. And, it's on sale. You really can't beat it.
