Default Allen Alpha - currently discounted - Opinions?

Just ordered the 3/4 Alpha as it was a deal and thought I'd try something differernt (I'm a Hardy guy, mostly). The Allen site says they are closing these out to make room for the new models. Anyone have an opinion on this thing? Thanks for any and all.

Great reel and choice! I just got my 3/4 Alpha last week. They are excellent reels and you'll be pleased. I have the Alpha in every size, as well as both Trout reels and haven't been disappointed. Hard to beat the price for the quality and customer service. Enjoy!

Hello,

The current Alpha 34 and 56 will not change. The only change will be in the 78 and 9/10 sereis. The Alpha II will only be in the bigger sizes. I will be releasing the Alpha II this week.

Hey Dennis, I now have two Allen Trout 5/7, Alpha II 7/8 and Alpha 3/4 on the way.

The Trout reels are just top notch equipment. That's all there is to it.

I think you will be VERY pleased with that reel. Especially at that price.


Let us know what you think.

-Jason

Thumbs up Re: Allen Alpha - currently discounted - Opinions?

Hi All.
I've also ordered a 9/10 weight,going by what I have read & seen they are a great Reel as the price is excellent with the latest discounts,at the prices I was tempted to buy another in a 7/8 however I already have all the other sizes covered.
Cheers & Good Fishing
Brian.

I just ordered my first Allen reel, I am excited for it to arrive, I have read many great reviews.

I'll give feedback after a few trips out.
Thanks
