Default A match reel for allen ats rod

Finally, I'am going to get a Allen Ats rod 2wt 7'3'' just wondering what would be a good matched reel? Something that is $150 or less

Default Re: A match reel for allen ats rod

I'd just go with an Allen Trout to complete the set! For my 2wt I have a Orvis Battenkill Barstock, which is 1.6oz lighter than the Trout reel. But unless you're really worried about the weight or want a different look, why not just match Allen with Allen?

Default Re: A match reel for allen ats rod

I have that exact same rod and use an Allen Trout 1 on it. I like the balance and it's certainly not a bad reel for the price. There are lighter reels on the market but its going to be hard to beat the combination of performance and price in a brand-new reel from the manufacturer.


And I guess I was not the only one thinking along those lines... before I hit send there were no responses
