I fancy the look of the new Loop Classic 811 reel. I know it's not neccessary but it looks lovely. Anyone used one? How does it compare with the Hardy Cascapedia? Neither reel has exposed rim control - I would probably miss this - old habits die hard. Any comments welcome.
Just waiting on the new Loop to arrive. Will let you know what I think. It's based on the Loop Evotec technology so it's bound to be good. With the braking system on these reels you don't miss rim control.
I've also got a Cascapedia (not the new one) and I like it alot.
The new Cascapedia is just badge engineering not a proper Cascapedia. The Loop "click" sounds a bit tinny to my ear..........just not quite perfect
Malcolm - what do you mean by this? I kind of assumed that for £600 it would be 'the works' so to speak. In saying that I've yet to hear someone rave about a modern Hardys reel in terms of preformance - looks and appeal yes, performance, no...
