Our primary objective with the Q series was to design a range of high performance fly rods that suit a range of angling abilities. Available at a highly competitive price point, the series is finished in an aesthetic cool grey colour and available in seven single-handed models and two double-handed models. Q has surpassed even our own very high expectations, with each model’s action being specifically optimised for its particular line classification.
The series has been developed to offer user-friendly casting performance. Both in the hands of a novice caster beginning their fly fishing journey, right through to an expert angler looking for a superior value for money fly rod, Q will simply perform. Each rod will excel in all forms of modern fly casting techniques and feels light and extremely responsive in the hand. If your looking to purchase your first ever LOOP fly rod or complement your existing collection, Q is built on the solid foundation of outstanding user-friendly performance.

ROD TEMPO ACTION
M/F – MEDIUM/FAST TEMPO ACTION:
This classic LOOP rod action offers the fly fisher more structure and backbone in the lower sections of the rod. This allows a broad range of angling application due to the perfect balance of casting performance and fish fighting ability. When longer casts are required, the angler can call upon more power reserve in the rod’s blank compared to the medium action tempo, resulting in greater water coverage for minimal biomechanical output effort.
Casting Ability Level: Novice, Intermediate, Good, Expert
F – FAST TEMPO ACTION:
Our fast tempo rods are designed for more direct-to-target power application with minimal blank deflection when the rod is brought to a stop on the forward delivery. This transfers forward energy through the rod in to tight, aerodynamic loops and even in challenging wind conditions, longer casting distances can be achieved with ease. With less flex in the blank compared to the Medium and Medium/Fast tempos, this action does however, require more finely tuned and accurate timing than the slower flex tempos to maximise performance of this classification of flex pattern.
Casting Ability Level: Intermediate, Good, Expert
