I hinted to my wife that I wanted a G-loomis 7-wt fly rod for x-mas. She ended up getting me a LOOP 9' 6" 7wt. I have never heard of them and wanted to know if anyone else has? She said the guys at sportsman's told her it was better than G-loomis. It's a little too cold for me to use it right now so I was wondering what everyone thought.
