Loop now has the lw out tho, and their are loop dealers in the US so if he has any problems he doesnt have to send it back to sweden.

Hello guys,

I think the Galvan Torque and the Vosseler DC- and the S-series are the best! Like overall quality, craftmanship and of course the PRICE!

Current LOOP reels are made in Korea or China ,and because they look similar it doesn't mean they have the same quality and internal design.............

No loop north america is still in business. It was a mixup. At worst you would have to send them to canada.

As far as internals they are pretty similiar, the loops have just not been out long enough to see how things hold up but pulling one apart it uses the same sealing mechanism as the danielssons.

Sean-

Is the carbon fiber composite drag disks made of the same materials and with the same precision as in Danielsson reels?

pulling one apart it uses the same sealing mechanism as the danielssons.

Base on the comments I have read in the past, the Loop have its own design.
Did they really copy Danielsson design?
If this is a case, I see serious problems for LOOP in Europe!
