I wrote to Loop yesterday to inquire about their warranty program for their reels. This is the reply from Anders Romson (firstname.lastname@example.org):
Loop reels carry a 5-year warranty against
material & manufacturing faults.
Usually, there is very little to worry about
these reels. I don't do much to look after them.
Just in the case of the Traditional series.
Try to keep the running wheels clean and
let the tension off the spool when not fishing.
I just assumed that a reel in this price range would have a lifetime warranty. My focus just shifted to the Canyon Big Game #4.
I have owned and used a Loop Traditional model 2W for four years, and although I agree that they should have a better warranty considering the price, they are definitely a quality reel. Mine has seen bonefish, permit, cuda, stripers, blues, false albacore, steelhead, and King salmon, and still performs flawlessly. The only problem I ever had was on the back beaches on the Cape, where sand from the surf would get into the wheels, but a quick rinse usually takes care of it.
Sorry Mitch, I got the names mixed up there!
