Default Allen Kraken? bonefish reels

Anyone have any experience with the Allen Kraken reels? Looking to get one for bonefishing and was interested as to whether the drag would hold up to bones or not? Its a great price and would love to pick it up if it would hold up to the bones. Any other reel suggestions around that price? (around 200)

In case it makes a difference, if you buy now (Deal of the Week), you get a free spare spool.

I tried that. I could only get the black reel. They didn't have any other colors.

Can you backorder to lock in the deal and wait till the new ones come in? They seem like a pretty easy company to deal with, unless they're just clearing out stock to make way for a new model.

They have announced that they are coming out with a new American made reel in the next few weeks but as to whether it is replacing any of the reels that we do not know.

Hi Guys, If anyone wants to place an order for the DOTW on BO. Please email me at info@allenflyfishing.com. The Kraken is not going any were. It's to popular for us.

Yes, we are coming out with a US reel soon and one other reel based of the same drag system. We are filing patents and just waiting for confirmation before we post photos. We will be fishing for Pinks next week and will show case the Omega reel.

We will be ofering it in 4 stock sizes and a #6 for custom orders. It's going to be a unique drag, spool, and frame combo that we are excited to bring to a fly fishing reel. If your gonna release a new design and make it a US product why not showcase something new. I'm excited about it. The great part its affordable. Love to answer any questions on it.

Thanks


Justin
