Re: Tackle review - Allen Fly Fishing XL 5/6 Fly Reel
Read your review this AM, thanks for putting it together..
The first thing that caught my attention was the discrepancy between the weight of your XL 5/6 and what Allen shows in their specs, about 1 oz , making your reel about 20% lighter.
I have made a practice of recording the weight of all my reels, and rods. Just something I enjoy, obviously doesn't effect their fishability. Results have been interesting.
From what your review found, it seems obvious that quite a bit of thought and planning went into the XL prior to production. The reception the reels have received from Forum members seems to demonstrate that. Will post the weight of my XL when it comes in.
