    Does anyone own the Loop Evotec G3? It's supposed to be improved over it's predecessor. Any opinions/thoughts?

    No, or I should say no to my knowledge. Castaway in CDA will be the carrying Loop everything in a month or so.

    Loops new reels are manufactured out of Korea... part of the reason Danielsson split with them. I guess they didn't like the idea that their reel designs were being whored out to the lowest bidder?

    thanks flyborg, i kind of thought the split between loop and danielson was permanent. its good to remember that the ORIGINAL mfg of the 'loop' reels was in fact danielson, and you can still order them direct. some of the very best reels i own.

    loop tried to find a lower bidder to make the reels behind danielsson's back and they somehow found out that they were doing it so they quit their partnership with loop and now are putting their own names on the reel

    Thanks guys, for the reality check. Wasn't aware of the details of the Danielsson/Loop split. Makes sense to me now who makes the superior product.
