Sexyloops HotTorpedo 9' 10wt review

Hi guys
I did it!!!
 Pls before you watch it set your resolution on 1080p, or 720p.
  I did it with my Galaxy s7 edge and it looks superb, but after downloading it on youtube and play it back, it plays automaticly in 144p resolution, and it looks like shit. Once you set it on propper resolution the quality will be fine.
  Also pls pay attention ( volume up) to what I say during casting
( I improvised and tripod was few m away).

  Now -me after watching it again and again, I made long faces and blushing red  thinking HOW SHITY ACTOR AND PERFORMER I am, but on the end I think I did ok and the message about this great, new fly rod went through.
  Before I was very sceptic about practice casting/shaping loops with 10wt rod( maybe I did not have a right tool for it), but today it was an eye opener. I could play with that rod and 10wt Rio Tarpon Taper for hours, it felt smooth and light. Tight loops and long distance  were just popping out of the HT 10WT tip with SERIOUSLY minimum effort.
  I have not much more to write( that is why I did the video).
Long story short-
Sexyloops HT 10wt is, very well build, fantastic performig fly rod, with great feel, with very fast action, awsome TIP recovery during casting, but not a feeling of a broomstick( i have one for my 27g Seatrout), and its not even close feeling wise.
...and those FujiTorzite Titanium Ceramic guides WOW....
  Shooting line is a breeze in hands of an experience caster...
  The only thing left to compleat this review is to fight a decent fish on it, but this might take a while.
  Thank you Paul.

Cheers mike

Hi Paul
Check this out. Ausies- as there is more SWFF here than between Sexyloopers from Europe- are responding quite nicely to the review.
