Default One great company

Hey guys,

I just wanted to let everybody know about my experience with the Allen & Co.

My name is Jeff and I am new to the forum as of a couple months ago, so I want to say hello as well. After bouncing around and researching fly reels I figured it was time to take everyone’s advice and try the Allen & Co. products. I ordered one of the Alpha series reels at the end of May and checked my mailbox everyday like a kid waiting for Christmas to arrive. After the first week I emailed Justin to inquire about the tracking number. We couldn't find it. He emailed me every day to check if it had shown up after 2 weeks we figured it was either an ordering error or got lost in the mail. Either way he put another one in the mail a couple of days ago. Well Christmas showed up yesterday!!!! What a beautiful reel.
Today I got home and Christmas had shown up again. Yea, the original order had shown up. I called Justin to let him know about the additional delivery and to tell him I would mail it back tomorrow. He said NO, he would prefer that I keep it, give it my kid, or just someone who enjoys to fish. His company name and reputation meant more than any reel. My daughter is now the proud new owner of an Allen & Co. reel and I am a customer for life. I would recommend this company to everyone who believes in quality products and customer service. Justin is one class act.
Thanks Jeff

That is a class act. Kudos to Justin. I've been telling everyone I know about Allen Fly Fishing. And referring them here for verification of their integrity and quality. This just furthers my desire to refer people to him.

Kudo's to Justin. I think it's great to hear of such "over-the-top" customer service this day and age. He's had my business in the past and will get it for a long time to come.

Hmmmm.... I feel an Allen reel coming on - soon!

That is a great customer service story and if Justin's products are as good as his business ethics, then he must produce an excellent product.

Thanks for the story, Jeff.

Great to hear!

I was looking for a nice 8wt reel for a custom rod that a friend has built me. I was looking at Lamson's and was ready to pull the trigger. I got a message on another site that I should check out his products and I was referred to this site. I emailed Justin several times regarding his products and the reviews seem great! I just order an 8wt. reel and a 3wt combo, flyline, and bonefish line for a trip down to Mexico for less than the Lamson! I just ordered and will give a report once I give the products a good test! I am looking forward to it.

The personnal recommendation that I recieved is a testament to how he runs his business! I know Lamson makes quality products but helping out individuals and companies like this to me is a lot more satifying!

Thanks,

Matt

I think I'm going to buy the trout reel real soon. Do you like the alpha reel? Why'd you chose that over the trout? How's it look and perform?
