Question Georgia?

Justin et al,

Any chance of an appearance in the Southeast...specifically, Georgia?

I just received 2 of the new Allen alummminimunum fly boxes and I will say they are very nice and great value for the price Knowing the issues that I have, I would bet money that I will purchase a couple more.

Different colors would be nice so I don't have to label them

Line production is taking a hiatus for a while. Since I have taken over product testing, I didn't feel the lines were in line with the quality our company was striving for. While we did sell them at a bargain price, I didn't feel the lifespan of the lines was sufficient to justify selling them. I also didn't feel that the upper weights of the lines were up to my performance standards. The lines did work for many, but I felt that the quality needed to be addressed.

We do plan to re-continue line production in the future. However, there are some challenges we must overcome to provide both the quality, and the value we are striving for in all of our products. We feel that our new lines of rods are one of the best values for quality and price out there, we feel our reels fit that description with the component upgrades we've been making, and our hooks definitely fit the bill. Once we have a line that checks out with all of my requirements, we'll have them back!

Justin, Evan, and Gavin,

I was great meeting you guys at the Sommerset, NJ show. The rods look great and the colored reels look amazing in person! I was very impressed with the different rod actions and they felt great in the hand too. I will send pictures a soon as I am done building the Xa blank.

Looking forward to recieving the Alpha 7/8 reel so I can break it in on some Steelies.

Thanks again for great customer service and products.

Tight Lines,
Fredy De Leon

Thanks Fredy and everyone else! We had a great time, and loved getting some great feedback on all the new rods!

Gavin wasn't actually at the show. The "third wheel" with us is Jason, who is our sales guy (for when we get the dealer program going). He's a very fishy guy with the trout, and is an excellent caster!

How's production going on that pretty looking anti-reverse reel you guys are making? Would like to be your first customer on that reel from what I have seen and heard of it.
