Here's a bit of history for you. Loop Tackle of Sweden was actually the first company to ever offer a true large-arbor fly reel to the market. Yup, Loop was the first. There's proof in Loop's design pudding, as almost every fly reel manufacturer has followed suit…offering their own large-arbor fly reel. Among all the copy cat reels is the Loop Opti series. Beautiful, functional, proven and iconic. There are the large-arbor fly reels of your fishing dreams.
