From the pictures they had teased with on Instagram it looks much darker then the photos.

heres a couple of Allen Alpha 3's on rods. the black isn't a flat matte black. i would say its satin black, which i like better! either way you can't go wrong with black...it matches everything

and as you can see i tend to favor Allen reels!

I like the black and the green, but the new emerald is not my cup of tea.

I like the hardy. Its a 4000 size so its suited for 3-5 wt. But honestly if i were to setup for bigger game i would take the allen over it. Due to the sturdy , solid feel.
