Wow got my Alpha III in size 4, awesome reels but way to big for what I need. Sure hope the guys at Allen will let me exchange them. Man they are great reels just too big for me.

Had the opposite happen to me once with a Redington Crosswater for my 2wt. I opened up the box and was like: "Where's the rest of it?"

I came home from a small trip to find my Kracken on my door step. I have it all lined up and will give it a shot this weekend.

Release the Kracken!!!

You will love that Kraken. I have rarely been more pleased with any reel including conventional gear

Yeah, I just got my 50% off Kraken and Trout II the other day. Now I don't know much about FF reels in general but was very surprised by the quality. They are beautiful and seem top notch. It is really beyond me how there could be a similar sized fly reel that cost $700+ and is really that much better than the Allen gear. Shoot, once I get my two "deal of the week" rods in the mail from Allen plus the two reels I got from them I'm going to have $730 worth of gear that I paid $380 for. Quality at an exceptional price, IMO.
