Default Re: Affordable 10' 6wt's?

Carl, I use an Allen Xa 10' 6wt for 'steelhead' in the Great Lakes area and it is wonderful. It's definitely my favorite rod of the five I have access to (though I have had a similar Helios experience ). The rod can handle some bigger fish than you would expect, as I've hooked into Chinooks on it, as well as 12+# browns. The price is very, very affordable, the performance is awesome, and the warranty is bulletproof (believe me, I've tested it...). Allen' customer service is awesome as well. I highly recommend the rod, you won't be disappointed!
