Holger asked me yesterday for more details on the build and appearance of the latest HT8 model. This is the flag ship model that we stock.
Sexyloops has its own cork grips made in Portugal using the slightly thicker Full Wells grip that we like with a small fighting butt. The cork quality is immaculate. The reel seat is machined by REC in the USA – the best – black anodised and the insert (spacer) is machined and black anodised in the UK.
Stripping guides are Titanium framed SICs, there are seven Recoil rings and the Tip Top is Hopkins & Holloway. Whippings are blue/grey thread with orange tips. Epoxy is applied in 3-4 very thin layers built up over time to give the perfect Sexyloops finish.
The most common custom builds for the HT8 are for Snake Rings and/or your name on the rod. The blank itself has four types of carbon, but the rest is a secret!
