Beautiful rods, I would be proud to fish with that, and even better I would be supporting an American company.

If I can still fish come spring, I see a 6'6" 3wt at my local Brookie hole.

Awesome thank you, looking forward to seeing it and you guys. I really want to get a 10' but having never used one much I want to kick the tires so to speak.

That is a NICE looking rod! I must say, I too, am sold on Allen's quality and service!

I can see the 8wt being my christmas present from me to me!

There was a thread just the other day which someone was looking for 10' 4wt rod recommendations, I don't think this one came up. I don't think many know that you are making a 10' rod. Very cool.

Do you guys sell blanks or just completed rods? I'd be interested in a blank...

Those are gorgeous rods ! I mean the color is just freakin' awesome. Excellent choice.
10ft , 4wt ? Wow,,,might just be me a new nymphin' stick for my bigger creeks and kayak fishing. I'd been considering a Greys' in 4wt 10ft,,,no longer...I'll go Allen with this. Much classier rod.

I'm on the fence pondering my 'bug' to get a glass rod anyways,,just cant see glass being as sensitive as graphite for 'fish on' feel. This farther complicates my decision....lol

Damn the money shortage !! LOL

Very nice looking. How do they compare to the Icon series? Tight lines, Jeff.

Hi Pa Cope,

The Icon is a faster rod. The Xa2 is more of our workhorse. Some here have used some of the proto's so they might be able to give you a bias opinion.

I see that you are from PA. The Xa2 is made from start to finish in PA. So that might give you a home town feel.

Thank you,


Justin
