New Loop Traditional 4

So you need a reel to handle the new Mid-Spey or some other new long belly spey line you bought? Well this reel will do it. I have a Loop 4 new in the box. This reel weighs about 8.7oz and will handle well over 200 yds of backing even with a Spey line. Basically this is an oversized Loop 3W.
The original large arbor reel, very light, tremendously smooth. Low start up inertia allows the use of lighter tippets. Tension on the override control can be adjusted to suit fishing conditions so the reel will not backspool when a hot fish runs. Asking $290.
