Allen Fly Fishing - Product Updates
First, I want to thank all of you helping Allen Fly Fishing reaching new goals. I wanted to send a new release out letting everyone know what is coming out and what to expect.
1. Trout Series – The new design is doing well. They will be back in stock in 7-8 days. I’m sticking with Gunmetal and Black for colors right now. However, I am going to have a green and red colored reel made in the future.
Also, I am making a 3/5, 7/8 (steelhead), and 9/10 (salmon) in the Trout series. These should be done and ready before the steelhead start running.
2. XL Series – This reel has made a good showing on the first generation. The new and improved reel will be ready shortly. It will be available in 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8.
The 5/6’s will have both options of a silent retrieve and a click retrieve. Also, the 7/8 in this series will have a cork drag. For those that prefer cork over carbon.
3. Rods – This has been a hot topic. I am working on a new rod for the last several months. Been testing and rebuilding until I am 100% fine with it. What I can tell you , is that it started at 3.2oz in a 9’, 5wt, 4pc. Seven months later its at 2.45oz.
Once it is ready, I will start with a 5wt, 9’, 4pc rod.
4. Saltwater Reel – I’m pretty excited about this. I will release 3D prints in a few weeks. The reel will be in a 7/8, 9/10, and 12/14 wts. The drag is a multi disk drag. The prints that I will release soon might change when the finished product is done.
I am prototyping a 9/10 wt reel and looking for the biggest fish possible for testing. I’m positive this reel will be a contender in the big game reel selection when its all done.
Well, that’s all for now. As always, contact me if you are interested in any product.
