HT4 Instructor Rod for NZ

Stu Tripney MCI has all of our rods now, often in different colours and custom builds! This is a white Instructor HT4 with a New Zealand flag 🙂

Fine workmanship from Lee on the build as always.

White HT4s are a special order (from memory we have two white HT4s out there, one yellow and one camo!) – mostly they are a matt finished carbon for stealth.

You can find the complete Sexyloops HT range here and the “user manual” here 🙂

We are flat out busy at the moment, with the new trout season underway in the Southern Hemisphere – consequently at this moment in time most rods are being made to order with approximately a two week delivery time. I do have one HT4 in stock ready to ship from Malaysia – this is one I brought with me from England.  Email me directly if you would like this!

Hot Torpedo blanks are designed by Paul Arden in conjunction with Alejandro Viñuales in Spain. They are unique to Sexyloops! The blanks are rolled in Spain and the rods are built to the highest standards by our rod builder Lee Martell in the UK – using Portuguese, British, USA and Japanese components. You will not find a better fly rod!

For enquiries please feel free to email me direct on I deal with all communications to give you the guaranteed best service.

Sexyloops fly rods are designed for flylines that conform closely to AFFTA standards. With the HT4 I personally use and recommend a Mastery DT4 from Scientific Anglers.

Thanks, Paul

HT6 heading Down Under

Here is an HT6 heading for Tasmania. This is Zuie’s third Hot Torpedo, having both the HT4 and the Comp V2 (Zuie is throwing some pretty serious distance nowadays!) I’m expecting some photos of large sea-trout very soon. 🙂

When I was in Tassie last year I used the HT4 for almost all of my fishing, but there are a few times when the 6 is a definite advantage. Mostly I found it necessary when “sharking” the Great Lake casting across strong crosswinds, but also for the coastal fishing I think it’s a must.

You too can be the proud owner of a Sexyloops Hot Torpedo… see the complete range of quite possibly the finest fly rods ever made!
