Default Re: 4 wt reel

After reading my comments today, I realize I was being hard headed. That was not what I intended. I admit, my impression of okuma products overall has been soured by a few personnel experiences. Today, It's still hard for me to not view them as not cheap alternatives to superior products.

My comment on Allen, should have read that I have a past model of Allen reel that I like very much. I have personally never used the newest offerings, so can't comment on them. After reading my impressions on Okuma products, one may also think I'm not happy with Allen....That statement would not be true! I'm just not able to comment on the newer Allen reels, because I've never used one. I'f I needed a new reel, I'd purchase another Allen without any hesitation.

In addition to fly fishing, I also float fish on occasion. My nicest float fishing reel, is indeed a Okuma. If the fly fishing reels offered also reflect the same value presented in their float fishing reels, I would have been smart to just keep my trap shut in the first place..
