Loop Opti K2 Fly Rods

Continuing the popular Opti series, LOOP Tackle have released their new range of trout specific fly rods – the Opti K2 single-handed.

The introduction of the Opti K2 is a  result of the success of the K2 Euro nymphing rod and demand for a lightweight, trout specific series of rods. This is a light, responsive action fly rod, at a great price. Finished in a deep gunmetal grey, the K2 series of rods are designed for the discerning trout angler.

The Opti K2 Series of rods includes:

3100 – The K2 Euro nymphing rod is the specialist rod for this increasingly popular method of fly fishing. The refined flex-plane of the blank offers ultra-connected drift control. Armed with a down-locking reel seat for enhanced balance and slim profile half-wells for increased sensitivity. If the fish start feeding from the surface, it also provides a lovely action for dries. It has great reach and control of the line and is a lot of fun to play fish with.

388 – Delicate presentations, thin leaders and excellent precision are the words that best describe this rod. If spooky fish on small waters is your aim, then this is the perfect tool to get the job done.

490 – Just like its little brother (388) the 490 is about presentation, thin leaders and precision. This rod likes a smooth tempo. Although, if some distance is needed, it has the resources to cast some line.

590MF – Loves a smooth casting stroke and is dedicated to presentation, thin leaders and precision. When fighting fish, you will feel it all the way down the cork and deep into your hand.

590F – A versatile all-round 5 weight rod. It prefers a little higher tempo and wants you to feed it with line. If tight loops and precision at distance is your game, this is the one for you. Dries, nymphs or small streamers, the choice is yours.

596 – Large flies on still waters, sinking lines, dries at long distances, streamers or heavy nymph rigs. Under or overhand casting, the 596 excels at all of the above and will just not give in. It can hold loads of line in the air and will not disappoint at shorter distances.

696 – Streamers, large dries and distance, fit the 696 well. The rod excels when you have to push through wind, and it absolutely loves to go toe to toe with big trout.

The Opti K2 range is now available in Australia and starts from $649 AUD.
