Allen Fly Reels


Recommended Posts

Curious to hear from those who have received and tried the reels that Justin @ Allen's Fly Fishing is offering and what your experiences are, likes, dislikes, design layout, reliability?

They're great looking reels!

Tnx

I have an Alpha 3/4. One of the eariler designed reels. its very nice, I like it quiet a bit. I was very surprised by it, very light, small and the quality of the build is fantastic!! Finish is a bright polished aluminum, very happy with it. Drag works well, I had some stocker trout on it couple weekends ago and it handled them just fine. I will say this though, even though the polished look is nice, I do kinda wish it was colored instead, like a dark green or burnt orange...something neat. oh i forgot to post the first time, the reel is also darn near silent, which i like VERY much.

A couple weeks back, Justin continued a post promoting the new reels and he said that the first person to pm him would receive a free reel…..I was lucky to be the first one. I haven’t received the reel yet, but I realize its only been a few weeks. I am like a kid on Christmas morning every day running out to the mail box in anticipation of its delivery. They do look like nice reels and I hope I do get the chance to receive and use one…..I did need a new reel for my St.Croix.

Thanks for the replies,.. keep 'em coming! I'm considering giving one of his Alpha Series 5/6 a try, hard to go wrong with the price so long as they're reliable & trouble free.

Didn't realize I was in the Bass Fishing forum when I posted this topic. Might have been better suited if I'd put it in the other topic forum pertaining to rods/reels/lines/leaders/waders in the Fly Fishing forum. My apologies for inadvertently posting to the wrong topic area.

:blush:
