Pro7 Streamer Rod to NZ

Here is our latest rod to ship this week. It’s a HT7 with a spare tip for accidents! We can send you a spare tip at the time of order when requested. This is a great idea if you are fishing in the wilderness.

Drop me an email on paul@sexyloops.com to find out more! We build in UK and we can also build in the EU if required. This is a cracking rod and is the one I use for my casting training nowadays. I would be tempted to use it as my go-to backcountry nymphing rod. 🙂



Frog Feeders

A bit of feedback here… cracking fish!

Gday Paul,
The HT6 is loving the frog feeders down here in Tasmania. Every time I use this rod it amazes me more, I love it. Arrow straight shots to these fish, no problem. Putting the brakes on them to keep away from trouble, no problem. What can’t it do, I have no idea because I haven’t found it yet.Thanks again mate for introducing the world to the HT series of rods. Now where is that 5 wt…😂😂

Gav

The Anubis

Pretty stunning looking custom HT4 for Nick! Definitely not your normal 4WT that’s for sure, especially this one! 😀

Comes with a hook keeper and a spare rod tip (both special orders!).

The HT4 is one of my personal favourites. It took almost 5 years to develop (or something ridiculous like that) and many attempts. It’s my go-to Trout and Grayling rod, that punches well above its weight with the unique HT’s fast/feel action. Mine has landed 16lb Carp, 5KG Giant Gourami and 8lb Brown Trout. It doesn’t hold back!!

😀

Here is some great feedback on the HT6 we have over in Texas…

Hey Paul!  Looks like the 7 weight should be here any day now.
I’ve really grown to love the 6 weight at this point – I went to the local fly shop and cast several other high-end rods and they just don’t really hold a candle to it.  Loop shape and line speed were so much better with the HT, and I was able to control everything in a way that the other rods just don’t really provide.

Always nice to hear! 😀 You can see the complete HT range here and of course feel free to drop me an email on paul@sexyloops.com

Cheers, Paul

News from the Sexyloops Workshop

A few builds on the go and some refurbishment projects completed. Stuntman Ronan who has performed a few stunts with his HT6, has had a section replaced and, because he’s a highly-regarded Stuntman, we are sending him a spare HT6 for his clients in NZ to use and abuse.

Piffen bought Tom’s HT10 and so we have changed the name on the rod. Unlike others, the guarantees we provide with Sexyloops HTs are not restricted to the original owner. That’s because we love our rods and want them to last for many MANY years!!! Taking off someone’s original name and replacing it with your own costs 20GBP plus shipping.

And finally we have sent an “abductor” rod tube label to Daniel the Abducted for his HT6 rod tube. Daniel writes…

What an incredible rod!!!

Really impressed. It’s amazing with any length of line.

Daniel the Abducted.

Have an awesome week! 😀 😀

Any questions? email me on paul@sexyloops.com Thanks!

Customised PRO7 with Black Recoils

A HT Pro7 off to join an HT6 in Texas for nailing Redfish and Speckled Trout! I have fond memories of fishing there with Rick Hartman and Bill Gammel.

I’m looking forward to seeing some big Redfish photos! If you are on a fly fishing adventure then check out the complete HT series here:

Remember all HT rods come with a free one-hour Zoom Casting lesson and we even have a user manual:

HT7 PRO with Torzites

We have a few of these in production at the moment. The HT7 is out latest production rod, below which I wouldn’t recommend Torzites however with the stiffness/weight ratio Titanium Torzites are quite fine on the HT7 and give outstanding shooting abilities.

This particular HT7 is off to West Coast USA for a CCI training for his MCI instructor exams. I offer to go through instructor theory with all HT owners and of course every rod sold at the moment comes with a free one-hour Zoom casting lesson from the back of the Battleship. The HT7 rod was in fact originally designed to nail the MCI test!

You can find out more about the HT7 and all the Sexyloops rods here: https://www.sexyloops.com/index.php/webshop/list/70/fly-rods

Feel free to contact me on paul@sexyloops.com to ask any questions you may have.

The Abducted

An HT6 for Daniel. If you’ve been a Sexylooper for a while you will remember that Daniel visited the Sexyloops Gathering in New Zealand and because he was worried that his girlfriend (now wife!) Gemma would be angry with him if he stayed longer; we abducted him and made him go fishing.

(That’s Morsie there on the left!)

The HT6 was actually designed with NZ in mind and is of course perhaps the most versatile of all trout weights, being able to comfortably cast most things that you would want to throw at trout.

I’ve invited Daniel out to Malaysia and have offered to abduct him again, in order to turn a three day trip into a month-long jungle fly fishing visit. The HT6 is perfect for Giant Gourami as well as Trout!

You can find out more about the HT6 here: https://www.sexyloops.com/index.php/webshop/item/536/ht-pro-9ft-6wt whipping colours are your choice. Daniel has opted for a British Racing Green.

Remember all new Hot Torpedo purchases come with a 1HR Zoom Fly Casting lesson courtesy of me on The Battleship. You too can be abducted…

A finely tuned rocket launcher!

I’m sure this rod is going to be a talking point 🙂 Heading over to San Francisco to a Sexylooper at the Golden Gate Casting Club. Gavan has quite a few HTs now and I’m sure this one is going to get a workout!!

An HT7 with Torzite Titaniums throughout! The 7WT is a powerhouse of a rod with HT feel. Originally it was designed for the MCI test – why cast 85’ when you can cast 145? 🙂

This is the rod I pick up nowadays when I want “to play”. Rooftop night-time jungle casting is HT7 territory.

This for me I think is the perfect trout streamer rod. Firing streamers into the bank edges and making long mends around currents. Great fun!!

You can find out more about this fly rod here, or drop me an email on paul@sexyloops.com – You are never far away from fish with a Hot Torpedo 🙂
