Buying one of these ALLEN Trout series reels.....Which Color?
 
I need a new reel and have decided its going to be one of the new Allen Trout series. Everybody is raving about them so much. So what color do you favor? The green holds no appeal and looks kind of janky to me.

So-o-o-o...... Black or gunmetal?

This pic looks bronze to me.

I have an Alpha in silver and the XL in black; I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. The black is very nice and glossy, I don't care much for the gun metal though.

I have a trout in gun metal and one in black.

The gun metal definitely looks more impressive, the black just looks functional.

You looking for pretty or functional?

I have the Trout reels in black, gunmetal, and green. I've got to say my favorite is the green...but gunmetal comes in second to me and black is always good. I have to admit I was wondering if I'd like the green, but of all reels I've owned or seen the Trout in green in my opinion is by far the best looking, but I don't think I would put green on any other then a rod with a green or black blank. For me the verdict is out on whether I'd like the red on a rod.

it is gunmetal if it is the same as the Alpha but, i think the red looks AMAZING and when i order the trout reel it will mostlikely be in the red.

If you're signed up for the Allen nesletter e-mail you should have recieved a special offer for the red reel this morning. It has a link to purchase the red Trout 5/7 for $75! Now I'll have to try one...

BTW, you might want to HURRY!!!!! I recieved the e-mail 20 minutes ago. Just to see if there was a limit on the item I could purchase I put 100 in my cart. It only allowed 46. 20 minutes later it is only allowing 42! I'm assuming this is reflective of inventory.

I have the Alpha 5/6 in the gunmetal and lokks Sweet!! I also have the XL 5/6 in the black and it also is great looking. I mounted the Alpha 5/6 on my Z-Axis 590-2. I had Dan Trela buid the ros with all silver components and silver thread accents and it looks pretty good.
