Allen ATS Rods: reviews?
 
In shopping mode for a new rod for my wife. She currently fishes a St. Croix Rio Santo, 8'6" 5wt and likes the action very much.

We are considering a number of rods including the Allen ATS rod in 5wt, most likely the 8'6" version. Web site indicates its a classic trout action (medium action). The St. Croix still fishes fine so we are in no hurry to purchase --- want to take our time to make sure we get the right rod.

Does anyone have any direct experience with this rod who could provide a good evaluation of it?

I've cast this rod at The Wasatch Expo and liked it very much. Easy casting mid flex rod for short cast with plenty of reserve power for longer cast if needed. Great price point. Really liked it.

I think Joni is a huge fan of the Allen ATS Rods too.:)

Hey Don,

We just wrapped up our Show season this year. We have demo a 5wt I can send to you to if you'd like to swing itt before you purchase. Let me know and I'll arrange it to ship once the shipment gets back from UT this week.

Thanks

Justin
