Default Kraken XLA

Anyone have real world experience with the Allen kraken XLA reel. I am considering buying one, but would like to hear some opinions first. Thanks for the input.

My only real world experience with the XLA was playing with the display model at the Marlboro fishing show. But it was enough to make me want one. It is a niice piece of gear.

I have one spooled up in anticipation of using it on my recent steelhead trip but didn't use it do to changing water conditions. It has a huge pick up capacity with the extra large arbor. I have other Allen reels, for the money, you can't go wrong with the value.
