Has anyone received their Nano Ti rods yet from Allen?
 
Just wondering if people have gotten them yet and what are their thoughts.

I got my Cannon from Allen & it became my favorite rod as soon as I tried it.

Interesting post, thanks. Do you have time to elaborate about why it became your favorite? What weight did you get ? :)

I got a 9' 6wt & it cast like a dream. I was throwing deer hair mice into a wind & when I shortened my leader I got it out there . The rod is as light as my 5 wt but has more backbone. I foresee using it for lt. salt water, bass, & landlocked Salmon.
So it looks great, casts well, & I handled some big fish with it.. I try to get a fish in as quickly as possible to prevent stressing it too much. The picture I posted shows the fish in the bottom of the boat because after we netted it I didn't want to damage it any more by handling it for a picture....

Appreciate the feedback. The rod sounds very good, enjoyed the picture.
The lightness of it is in line with what Justin has been saying. It appears he has something good going.

I have a 5 on order too. Am in agreement about the reels &, as you did, made my decision to buy a rod based on that. Thank you for your post.

I as well got mine a few weeks ago. I got a 5wt and i haven't been disappointed and you won't be either. It's everything i expected and more. Several folks at my casting pond have casted it and are really sweet on it. A few have even compared it favorably to their Helios in looks, action, and weight.

Worth the wait. Now i wish i had ordered two of them.

People have compared it to a Helios!!!!
I know they LOOK similar but didn't think it would ACT the same.
That's awesome if it's true.
I am patiently waiting for mine to come...anyone know if Justin is shipping them out yet?

Hookworm:

His last post said they are being finished in Tacoma & will be ready in April.

What weight did you order?

I ordered a 9' 5wt, sounds like Justin has ran into some snags but the rod will be well worth the wait.
