Re: Allen & Co reel? what do you all think?
Got my 7/8 XL in the other night. Justin gave me instructions on how to change it to left hand retrieve. If I wasn't such a moron, it would have gotten done before now.
It's a nice reel. Ultra light for a 7/8 wt reel. If I'm not mistaken, it's got a black anodized finish. I thought it was paint from the pics, but upon closer inspection, I can see some slight milling marks. Smooth as butter.
Mounted it on the 9' 7wt Avid just to see where it balanced at. It landed right at the hook keeper. I think with some line/backing, it'll hit the sweet spot right at the handle tip.
I'm considering getting another for my 5wt and selling the Ross Flystart I have.
It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
What manner of jackassery will I be subjected to today?
